If you delete the failed node from the cluster, then you MUST reinstall 
it before powering on. If you intend to resume it's operations normally 
without reinstalling, then don't remove it.

If you can, just add a simple machine to the cluster, so that it really 
has 3 nodes for voting and you don't have quorum problems when one 
machine is down. You can even use a NUC or an old machine.
