Ok, I am looking for some advice. I found a Farmall C online and the listing states this tractor can run on kerosene or gas. I am not very familar with the kerosene type tractors. Also did the "C" have a kerosene system? I spoke with the owner on the phone and he told me that the tractor was running last year and then just died so they just covered it up with a tarp and there it sits. He also told me that the sheet metal is good and the motor is not stuck. Ok the bad part is, that he is not available till this weekend and I am not, so I have to send a friend to go and look at the tractor. So please any advice on this would be greatly appreciated, like I said I dont know anything about the Kerosene type fuels.
I will have my friend get some pictures of the Farmall and post this weekend.
Dual fuel tractors are nice to have, and really generate some interest. They had 2 fuel tnaks, a small one for gasoline to start and warm up , then a bigger oen for kerosene, distillate, etc. Finding C with one is pretty unusual. Most of them have not been run on kerosene in years. they run on gasoline only simply by readjusting the carburetor. C is a good midsized tractor, and if price is reasonable are good tractors. Being a dual fuel, it more than likely has a magneto instead of distributor, and may have bad points or a coil. The C and Super C were both available in dual fuel, so it could be either. serial numbers form enigne and chassis will tell more about it.

Thanks, I will try and get the S/N this weekend. And for the price, I am almost to ashamed to admit it but the guy wants 450.00 for it and told me he was considering something lower. I am almost ready to buy it sight unseen.
Hard to go wrong for $450 (or less). Grab it!

good sheet metal and turns over freely, def worth more than 450.00
