no it doesn't have a LP manifold.
yes it was fairly humid but not really oppressive.
has the standard Jetstar carb no mods, ran it on the dyno next day no sensitivity to power jet adjustments.
tractor planted 200 acres of beans this year no problem.
considering Zenith carb from Yesterdays Tractors. good idea? Listed for U302.
35 years aviation familiar with carb heat, don't think a good idea for dusty work. jack

Stay away from the Zenith carbs. You will not be happy with the loss of power and the work it will take to make it fit. (been there, done that)

My MH44 with carb was real bad about icing on humid days. Getting the manifold up to temp quickly is the solution. Once the manifold is hot it should be OK.

I have found a thermostat helps, maybe pre-warming the manifold with a heat gun if you are doing short runs.
