I had a problem like this at one time and found that the camshaft had broken between the cylinders that was firing and the oenes that were not. Just a thought and I hope you find something cheaper wrong.

I had the same thing happen to me a few weeks ago on a G allis. Front two plugs would not fire. I did all the new tune up things, still no fire finally I checked the obvious some one had crossed the two wires. That is when you have to ask yourself how smart you are. Check the obvious.

I tend to agree with Dave Maddux. I think you have a couple of wires crossed. Look for the simple stuff first. I don't think your problem is serious. When two cylinders go down together it is usually an electrical problem. Check you firing order. I am betting that is where your problem is. Good luck. Dave(Ontario)

If all else fails, back to the old compression test. Seen many gassers and diesels alike that have blown the head gasket between two cylinders with no loss of coolant. Depending on firing order may exhibit some strange sounds from either intake or exhaust. Good luck.

Today's Featured Article - Identifying Tractor Smells - by Curtis Von Fange. We are continuing our series on learning to talk the language of our tractor. Since we canít actually talk to our tractors, though some of the older sect of farmers might disagree, we use our five physical senses to observe and construe what our iron age friends are trying to tell us. We have already talked about some of the colors the unit might leave as clues to its well-being. Now we are going to use our noses to diagnose particular smells. ELECTRICAL SMELLS ... [Read Article]
