Using a tachometer, with the engine idling, remove one at a time each spark plug wire and note the amount of rpm drop for each cylinder. (on a diesel, crack an injector nut loose to "kill" each cylinder) The amount of rpm drop should be pretty close for each cylinder. If the rpm doesn't fall off near as much with one particular cylinder, it isn't "doing as much work" as the others.

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]
