60's 3000 diesel. Has a bit of valve chatter and I'd like to adjust. However, I can find the timing marks nor know the easiest way to make sure number 1 is on exhaust or compression. May have found the inspection slip on the back side of oil pan on right side of tractor?

Thoughts?

It's a 3 cylinder diesel. Just realized I didn't state that.

Never been around a 3 cylinder except once, put points in one , with a loader on in 0 weather. What a pain in the b-t. Just another reason I never cared for the blue ones, even though I have 5200. And the day is awful close when I can't get up on it anymore. Another advantage of the "golden years"!

So from front to back.... What's the order of intake/exhausts?
Like:

1 intake

2 exhaust

3 exhaust

4 intake

5intake

6 exhaust

??

When the exhaust starts to open adjust the intake, when the intake starts to close adjust the exhaust. This will get you on the base circle of the cam for each cylinder.

Ok, I was going off the manual, it showed to put cyl 1 tdc compression and do a couple then tdc cyl. 1exhaust and do the rest. But pretty sure I just made it worse without definitely finding tdc. I used a rod and stopped when piston was up

Watch the valves as you turn the engine when the exhaust valve closes and the intake just starts to open the piston is at tdc exhaust. Mark the front pulley and turn the engine one round. Repeat on other cylinders. If it was a 4 or 6 cylinder you could watch the companion cylinder.

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
