I concede that 4cc isn't going to make much difference, especially where the TDC chamber volume is 60 or 70CC in many engines & well beyond that in your N tractor.

I wasn't looking for concession - just a corroboration or correction I can trust :D Obviously the closer you can get to measuring the actual engine volume the better. Npw on to far less interesting tasks - fixing the coolant leak in TOOH's Cat. At least that has an outside chance of buying a little domestic tranquility.....

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeOn that coolant leak, first are you sure that you have a coolant leak? Have you checked your tire pressure? What is the position of the shifter when you observe this? I recommend a different viscosity coolant.

If all else fails, adding ATF to any opening that will accept it seems to be the primary fix....have you tried that? How is condenser & relief valve? Primed the oil pump lately?

Actually I have only taken TOOH's word for the coolant leak analysis. Perhaps it's really A/C condensate in December and she is actually pouring coolant into a drain tube.

I have checked my gauge again the one on my compressor,,, they both read the same... Its simple and fast and good enuff for me....

Compression test is just a link in the chain of diagnostics (as you know but very few Guru's here understand)....
