I'm not aware of an 860 with kerosene option. They were available in gas, LP and diesel. Check to make sure this is not a Jubilee or NAN with 860 decals. Look for the serial number on the horizontal flat spot above the starter. It will have the model designation and serial number. Not saying it's impossible, just not very likely.

Probably kerosene. Take the cap off and smell it. The kerosene tank is probably bigger, right? Is there some sort of transfer valve on the dash? Some of these old tractors were designed to be started and warmed up on gas then switched to kerosene or "tractor fuel" which I understand to be a really low quality fuel that was cheap. Try the Ford board for more info.

Thanks for the comments concerning my 860 Ford,with the fuel tank having two compartments.All of our old tractors used tractor fuel and started on gas that was common but I can't find anywhere that Ford ever did that, not saying they didn't, I just don't find it. The model number stamped on the block is 860...Haven't been able to find the info on the Ford site on internet either. Thanks again for your interest-

On My farmall H the literature of the mid 40's said that the tractor could be run on distillate, because during WW2 gasoline was rationed. Your tractor could be a similar concept, i dont know what KEP is but maybe, it stands for KEROSENE, ETHANOL, PROPANE.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Implements and Their Use - by Curtis Von Fange. Dad was raised during the depression years of the thirties. As a kid he worked part time on a farm in Kansas doing many of the manual chores. Some of the more successful farmers of that day had a new time saving device called a tractor. It increased the farm productivity and, in general, made life easier because more work could be done with this 'mechanical beast'. My dad dreamed that some day he would have his own tractor with every implement he could get. When he reached his early sixties ... [Read Article]
