MF35 repair advice/referral

DavidScott Hi folks - we have a Massey Ferguson TO-35 that upon starting up, started leaking a pancake-batter like fluid out of the oil dipstick, and around the upper engine seal, and a small amount of the same fluid from the drive train seal under the seat. Quite a lot of this stuff came out of the front two locations... as much as a couple gallons.
My assumption is that the radiator is leaking into the engine somehow - either a bad seal, or a cracked head. I typically have had to fill the radiator after every two or three hours of use, and have as long as I've had it. At this point, it doesn't seem like it should be driven, so I have no way to transport it.
I know next to nothing about tractor repair, so am looking for anyone in the Bloomington/Bloomfield (Indiana) area, who would be able to come out and take a look at it and/or repair it. Or, if this is a fairly approachable problem, would anyone in the forum consider helping us diagnose and repair this issue?
If we end up calling in a repair person, what should we expect to be charged for the simpler, and more complicated, possible repairs?
We'd appreciate any thoughts you all might have...
David in Bloomington, IN
