You might have a ring in that cylinder that got installed upside down and that would turn it into a pump pulling oil into the cylinder instead of scraping the excess oil down back into the pan.

Dave, Kevin pretty much hit it on the head there. A pretty worn valve guide on #4 cylinder could easily be the problem which would be minor compared to a major overhaul. Oil could be running down the guide over night, splashing and oiling up the plug when you crank the engine over. Because that plug is misfiring all the time, it never gets a chance to clean itself up, so it continually gets worse.....

Run a compression check on all four cylinders. Write down the max pressures on each. Should be close to 100 PSI. The #4 cylinder may be lower. (Compression rings may be OK, but might have bad oil ring.) Whichever cylinder is noticeably lower than the others, squirt some oil in that cylinder and run test again. If pressure goes up, compression rings are bad. If pressure doesn't change, problem could be in valves. Then you would want to pull the head and check valves, seats and springs. The only other way I know to get oil in the cylinder is through a bad valve guide. Before I started tearing down the engine, I would do a little more troubleshooting. One other question--are you seeing much crankcase blowby coming out the breather when the engine is running? And make sure you have good plugs and good copper wires and all plugs are firing good.

Report back if you can and we'll go from there.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
