If the engine has dry liners, then these have been fitted after the tractor left the factory. Factory new engines never had any dry liners. Dry liners can be re-bored to the first oversize. Loss of engine power is often because the maintenance have been neglected. Blocked air cleaner (outer and inner element) is one of the possibilities.

Hi most likely something like what ollek said, i have an old 1494 uses heaps of oil done way over 14000hrs but still starts ok and pulls like a train with more smoke, so engine condition has to be really bad before it affects performance , may not be getting enough fuel, filters lift pump screen ect.

Tock the turbo off mine years ago after it emptied the oil in one round of paddock made up exhaust connector and turbo was never replaced . The engine stop can part return after stopping and can give very poor performance if not corrected just one of several things to check .
