I think the conflicting stories of old tractors running on distillate or kerosene stems from kerosene being widely used on the farm before farmers started using tractors instead of horses. We used to have an old 55 gallon barrel of kerosene in our oil shed when I was growing up in the 60's and 70's. Once I asked my great uncle if they used that much in lamps that a barrel that big was needed? He said that they used it for heaters, as a parts washing solvent, as well as for lamps. Then when they got their first tractors, he said they found it worked in them too.

So I think you had farmers not stocking both distillate and kerosene when they could get by with just one.

I don't know if Deere ran a different manifold on the two cylinder tractors to burn distillate or not, but the tractors with vertical engines did. I believe the compression was lower on a KD engine too. The last person I remember running kerosene around here was Russell Chambers in his John Deere G.
