I am replacing the head gasket on this tractor as that was idenified by the seller as required. I have gotten to the ppoint of removing it, but it is stick, I will lock nut and remove the studs as this tractor uses nuts not bolt and I think it is binding on the studs.

That wont hurt anything doing it that way but I would just get into it with a screw driver and wedges since you are replacing the head gasket. It is not unusual for a head to get stuck from years of carbon and if water cooled and no anti freeze then rust will be holding it.
Use a soft hammer and give it a flogging all the way around while prying the head up. It looks as if it is a cast iron head so go for it.
