Question -1 what would cause one cylinder to be dry ? (The one the arrow is pointing to) none of the cylinders have pitting it scratches . All pistons are tight and are not loose .
Question -2 what is this ? It can be depressed but not sure what it s for . I m new to tractors and it s probably a dumb question .
Question -3 can all the wiring be replaced and if so how do I find which wiring harness do I need when I don t jnow the exact year of the tractor due to no numbers from pitting and corrosion? Thank you in advance

Thanks lot . Yes it s a diesel . They bypassed the key switch a few times , there s a push button now it does have a 12 volt system already . I m gonna assume it shouldn t be to hard to find injectors for this motor . They looked in bad shape when I removed them . I also need a radiator . I still wish I had my flip phone sometimes as these smart ones aren t that smart . Thanks again guys .

I can't tell from the picture why that cylinder is dry, pitted, and scratched, while the others aren't. Maybe a bad plug, causing a misfire, and the unburned gas washing the oil off the cylinder wall? That's the starter button. Normally, you turn the key, then press that button to start the tractor. Incorporates a neutral safety feature. This site sells many parts, including wiring harnesses. Usually, you don't need the exact year. The one I linked is for if your tractor is still a 6V system. There's another harness for a 12V system, and a 12V conversion kit, with a harness.

That is a diesel engine so it could have been a bad injector or pump not fueling that cylinder and the diesel would have been 12 volt.

Good catch. I hadn't noticed that in the small picture on my phone.

I still use a flip phone so I hate when people send me pictures and they are so small I can't tell what they are.
