M All-Fuel??

I was wondering how rare the Farmall M All-Fuel tractors are. I bought a 1941 M, which appears to be a gasoline-only tractor (no starting tank or S/N suffix), and it has an All-Fuel hood on it. The hood is not original since it says 'McCormick' not 'McMormick-Deering'. It also has the extra hole for the starting tank filler. I may want to return the tractor to original someday and get a correct hood. Is this hood rare/valuble/desirable?

I think they were all pretty much all fuel in 41.The manifold probably broke at one time or another and the tank was taken off for some reason,probably to keep future owners from using it since without the kero manifold it wouldnt run right untill it got extermely hot!Both oif my 41s have a gas manifold,the hoods you describe and one still has the tank.

John - I have a '53 early Super M with the all-fuel, or, distillate engine. Still has both tanks fully connected and a pretty original tractor.
Runs on gas now, and the bowl under tank still original I think. It has power steering, and I do not believe it has been abused as hard as so many this age have. I have been told the distillate version may not have been as common during this 1950's time frame, but earlier 1940's may have been more of. Not sure who to ask, but if you have the serial # tag, and an engine # stamped on a pad on right side of block, upper area, we can look that up and tell you what the numbers mean. If you have an IH Data Book from Guy Fay, it explains a lot of that. If you can get those numbers, I could look them up and tell you more maybe. Also, some casting numbers on the cast parts on the tractor may give you a hint as to years those parts were cast to see if it is close to year of the tractor. My e-mail: mdrake45@yahoo.com if you want to pursue this more........

The hood may be original. Many, many tractors were repainted by dealer when they were traded and the McCormik only stickers were only used on repaint jobs. The manufacturer released a memo to dealers in the old days to repaint used farmall tractors to replace unavailable new tractors on the lots when the inventory wasnt there.
Just a thought.
Is there a input for another gas line on the sediment bowl base?

There seems to be only the tank tube on the sediment bowl and just one valve. I check it when I pulled it off. The tractor was repainted at some time because now it has two layers of pealing paint. Could the All-Fuel hood come on non-All-Fuel tractors?
