Hi Brad,
Very likely causes are a failed small end bush or a big-end bearing. Turn the engine in the direction of rotation until number three piston starts to go down. When it is an inch or so from the top stop. Try and push the piston down by hand. I suspect that you will be able to push it up to 1/8" before it stops. If this is the case you will need to remove the sump (oil pan) to gain access to either and to be able to remove the piston if the BE journal is damaged. Check the condition of the crank journal thoroughly.

Will try it today and post results. Can the sump be removed without taking front end of and splitting tractor?

DavidP- You were spot on. I turned the engine until piston was traveling down. With the piston one inch below the top of block I manually pushed down on the piston and discovered about 1/8 drop. So, I'm on to removing the sump. My plan is to look for a bearing or wrist pin problem. Will post an update.
