My tractor was built during World War II. Some artifacts of that can be seen: It is a duel-fueled tractor, with a small starter fuel tank meant to hold gasoline, and the larger fuel tank for kerosene. The radiator has “shutters” in front of it, to help the engine warm up quickly before switching over to the cheaper kerosene.
Serial number on my tractor: 60462X3
Code at end of serial number:
The kerosene/distillate engines used a different cylinder head which resulted in lower compression. The lower compression head will readily interchange with the higher compression, gasoline head and vice-versa.

It depends entirely on your manifold. If you have a petrol manifold it won't run on anything but petrol, but if you have a duel fueled manifold and a small petrol tank beside the big tank it will run on kerosene, or distillate, or jet A1. With a duel fueled model your motor has to have a radiator shutter to bring the operating temperatures up quickly because the alternative fuels require a hotter running motor, that is to aid vaporization.
