JD 870
I’ve got a JD 790 with a 3tne82a engine with only 539 hours that has a cylinder not working. the tractor started running poorly. so after checking for obvious issues i tried cracking the injector lines one at a time . on cylinder 3 it made no difference in the way the engine ran. i swapped injectors and the problem did not follow the injector . my next step is a compression test. has anyone experienced this issue.

Welcome to TBN

When you cracked the lines, did you get fuel at each one?

Do you have the service tech manual?

175 PSI seems low for a diesel, did you check the other cylinders for a comparison?
