I enjoyed observing the Farmall tractor. Thank you for showing it. That is correct; I moved the gear until I was in time. And it is correct about the gas verses diesel. Also it doesn't make any difference whether the number one is at the front or at the rear. Because it is a diesel engine, it can operate either way. One cylinder starting the firing order can start at the rear or it can start at the front, as long as the timing/fire order is correct. I think this is correct. That is why this engine operates with number one being at the rear. Okay, okay.

Monday, I will take off the cap, and the highest plug and fill with oil.

I think the reason that there is white smoke from the rear cylinder is because of exhaust valve not closing all the way. Could be carbon; stuck valve, or something else. I will pull the valve cover Monday. Once when I had removed the spark plug on the rear cylinder, I entered a screw drive into the plug hole to feel for the top of the piston. It was unusual in relation to a gas engine. However, there was something loose inside -that I am confident. I could move something in there. Read the above in the other example I gave and read here let me know -anyone- your comment(s). Thanx Al I remain appreciative and wishing you a enjoyable weekend.

Thomas, once you get the valve cover off, check that the starting valve is closing on the bad cylinder. If that valve does not seal when you switch to diesel, you will probably get the symptoms you are seeing. If it runs without a miss on gas, then it probably is not the exhaust valve. If valve(s) look OK, then it's probably the injector. Al
