No I didn't say I was just going to pull the head and send it off, blindly, without looking at anything else for the cause... please reread what I wrote?

I said that since the head has to come off, what is the problem will be revealed in that process. It will show if there's a hole in the piston, a broken rocker or push rod, etc.

The mechanic who will pull the head will look at the piston tops, sleeves, oil, etc for issues that could be causing the oil leak and problems.

I'm not sure why I have to defend making the decision to take the tractor to a mechanic?

I'm not sure why I have diagnose and narrow down what it could be, when the motors going to be cracked open and it will be apparent?

If there was just one thing going on, the dropping of the cylinder, i'd greatly appreciate the help in diagnosing the miss.

But since it's more than that, and i know the head is worn out from decades of use, and the head needs to come off to fix the oil issue, I said i decided to have a mechanic work on it since i don't have the time to do it and don't want to be without it for as long as it would take me squeezing in a few minutes here and there to work on it.

Sorry I came to that conclusion and that it annoys all of you.

I'm sorry that the head is worn out and that it needs to come off to fix the oil issue.

Really, I wish all I had was a "miss" issue to resolve...

Maybe a moderator can just delete this thread, since I've decided the direction i'm taking doesn't need further assistance and it's just annoying you and wasting your time.

I was premature in posting a question, I should have thought through it a while longer. sorry for wasting your time.

Thanks for those that have responded with helpful information, sorry I'm not going to dig into deeper and wasted your time.
