What's the story on the tractor? Has it been setting a while?
Others may disagree, but those numbers shouldn't keep it from starting.
May not run well on three cylinders, but it should start.
Ford minimum is 90, so the other three seem fine.
I would sooner think maybe you have a stuck valve or stuck rings then
worn rings on one cylinder.
Try pouring some ATF or 50/50 ATF and acetone in #2 and let it soak a day or two.
That may free up a stuck valve and/or stuck rings.
Roll it over with the plug out to blow the ATF back out. (makes a mess)
You can pull the plug out of the bottom of the carb to make sure you have
fuel flowing through it. Should run steady for a couple minutes straight.
Let us know what you find.
