RE:Massey Harris General Purpose Four Wheel Drive
Now for the question you may be wondering " How do I know if it is a Distillate or not?"
I am sure there were many Flathead Distillate tractors made but you just don't see them too often or at least not in this part of the Country. I know there were spots like Nebraska or New Zealand that were more dominate with Distillate tractors. I don't know if the price of fuel in these areas was higher at the time or if was just a preference thing.
Here is a picture of a Distillate manifold on a Flathead tractor verses the regular gas manifold. Also the hood is about 4 & 1/2 inches shorter to acommidate for the larger three section fuel tank ( Water, Distillate and Gas ) and then there is the Heat control for the driver to control the heat of the manifold.
