thanks boyscout !  I have downloaded all the manuals for my tractors and the service manual and have read a good amount including the troubleshooting guide . I was never a good student because of a little dyslexia and a little adhd . and I have a hard time grasping some things . I have always done well when I get help from the guys who do the stuff . it also prevents me from making false assumptions and breaking things. hahaha   ... you guys have stopped me from that more than you know and I appreciate it

Seems the Librarie would have lots of books on basic engine knowledge from HOW it works, which you might want to start with, to the specific model of engine you have.  Used book stores may have books on Auto Shop like used in High scholls and Teck places that show How things work and some repairs that can be made. One should understand the crank throws and cycles first, then the cam actions to open/close valves, THEN the techniques of how to grind valves and seats and such. Keep in mind the shop books from schools will show the valves, the seats and the guides and how to inspect them and repair or replace.  Some things may require more tools or machines than common guy has, yet most auto parts stores offer machine work too for things that need special tools. Maybe even epay will have some shop books from schools.

Low compression could be a sign of bad valve sealing --oil burning could be worn valve stems or guilds but  bad rings could give the same signs ,spitting out of the carb could be a leaking intake valve or timing a tad off ---a leak down test is a sure way to pin point if it's the valves or rings.and you don't need a fancy tester just an air supply and a hose hooked up to a spark plug adapter kinda hard for me to explain how to do it but I think you could find something on you tube that walks you through the steps.
