gutless 255 massey ferguson

Darren I own a 255 Massey Ferguson with a 236 Perkins engine and it is very gutless it is Supposed to be 50-55 horsepower and I am betting it is probably only 30 - 40 so I was hoping somebody out their could help me figure out what is wrong with it so I can get that power back.
Ronnie I would start with a compression test, and compare readings with what is spec for your tractor.
LenR Check air filters, it probably has 2, one inner, one outer.

Check fuel filter.

Does it start easy or hard? How many hours? My 255 dyno'ed at 62 before I had to rebuild my injector pump, it was turned up a little too much, no probably around 55.

It could be the injector pump :-(
