If I remember correctly, K means you can use low octane fuel and gasoline. I forget what the gas only letter is. Seems like distillate falls somewhere between kerosene and gasoline. Even WD 45's could be had set up for distillate, although a gasoline WD would probably out work one. Hope this helps, Brian.

As far as I know Distillate = Kerosene but I've been wrong at least once before.

I saw a copy of the Nebraska test for a WD-45 burning distillate. Apparently it was was optional at least up to the '45s I have a '37 WC that I am going to have both tanks hooked up and working. What is the replacement fuel for distillate, diesel or kerosene?

I doubt that there is anything fishy here. They began making "styled" models in late 1938. I have no idea when they stopped installing the small take under the hood but my 1945 model doesn't have it and never did. It is very possible that someone retrofitted the tank to your tractor but I just don't know.

One more thought---with gasoline in short supply they may have left the small tank on the styled tractors so the farmers could continue burning distillate until the war was over. This would explain your 43 having the tank and my 45 without it.

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer.
