When I was a kid, about 65 years ago, a friend of my Dads was running styled WCs on propane, don't know if they were dual fuel but seemed to run ok on propane.

Never too old to learn--just looking at tractordata.com, I see three compression ratios listed for the WD45 226 engine. The common gas, a lower ratio for "tractor fuel"(I suppose the true dual fuel-start on gas run on distillate) and a higher ratio for the LP model. I assumed the gas tank was just used on the WD45 LP as a dummy to hold the hood. Probably cheaper than coming up with something else.

Used to be lots of WD45's around. No LP's here. Very few diesels.

LP WD45 had a front mount LP tank that utilized the mounted cultivator brackets- the square cutouts that were referred to. They mount on the front of the C-channel frame. You could switch from one fuel to the other.

Because of the higher compression ratio, ethyl gasoline was to be used, not regular. This was a factory setup, not a conversion.

The factory LP tank mounts had a square cutout for a front mounted cultivator.

When I was a kid, a neighbor had a WD factory gas with a LP conversion. The tank was mounted in front of the radiator.

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
