Sounds like the compression is a little low warm it up some expands the rings with the help of oil pumping up around the rings helping it seal. Not sure what cold compression should be maybe 120?

Actually it will have more compression when the engine is cold rather than hot. Although the rings and piston expand when they get hot, the oil gets thinner and the valve clearances decrease when hot resulting in less compression.

Jason i know that if your low on compression and tractor sits a spell say two weeks the oil seeps back down off the cylinder walls making the compression less so in winter months the 6 volt battery dos'nt spin fast enough to build compression to fire. just saying

I checked the compression last year and it was 120 psi on all cylinders.
