Next smoking Farmall 100 question

After my post below I'm convinced my smoking problem is oil so today I've decided to start taking the tractor apart. I pulled the spark plugs and plugs in cylinders 3 and 4 show oil while 1 and 2 are dry. Is there a reason cylinders can burn oil in pairs? Its possible I messed up putting the rings on those 2 pistons but I'm wondering what else to look for as I take the tractor apart. I also found some water in the oil so I have a water leak too.

Cylinders burn oil in pairs, especially at night, because its safer that way.

Not always, but a lot of time when a pair of cylinders that are side by side have common issues, such as low compression or the like, then the gasket was not sealing between the two cylinders.
It very well could just be coincindence and you may have installed the rings on those two cylinder incorrectly.
If there is coolant in the oil, then I would suspect the o-rings on the bottom of the sleeves have dried out/cracked and started to leak or the headgasket was not sealing.
Good luck with the repair and take pictures of everything to prove to yourself what you did correctly on reassembly this time. That way if you have another issue you will be able to more easily narrow it down and not doubt yourself.

did you check compression before tear down?
