Your compression is OK. Those compression numbers indicate it will be a long time before you need to go into the engine. Your cold starting problems must be carburater problems. Do you know if the choke is working properly???

A lot of you guys are pointing me to the carb. The choke seems to work. When temps get below freezing I have to choke it to get it to fire up and then I push it back to about halfway for a little while till it warms up. Lots of times though especially when it's cold, i'm lucking if I can get it firing on all 4 cylinders long enough to get warmed up. On really cold days, I can't get it going. I've also put in new ignition parts and set the timing. This might help... the plugs get a fine carbon coating on them. Not sure what that means.

Dean About your last comment on getting a "coating of carbon" on the plugs. Most likely too rich from choking too much. It takes a sharp ear and eye to tell just how much choke some need. Watch the exhaust on initial start for any black puffs. Thats too much chokeing. Yours may NOT really need full choke untill much colder. People with sharp hearing can tell by exhaust but thats hard to relate by text. Watch exaust. No black smokeing needed. Should be clean exhaust within a few seconds with that kind of compression.(assumed no oil burner) R.

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]
