You are think in a vp or cp3 style system. The tractor has a rack and was designed to run ULSD. Juanita injectors are picky sons of bitches, a rebuild and pop is more than buying new ones. I would highly suggest not using 2 stroke oil instead using an additive that is designed specifically for that application and adds more lubricity than 2 stroke oil. Another issue is ash vs ash less which you didn't even mention. That a huge issue in a liquid cooled engine. The argument has always been cost of 2 stoke oil vs cost of a quality additive. In an application such as a tractor that point goes out the window.

Don't give shit advice based on your lack of knowledge on the topic. Thanks.
