Most of the vintage tractors were running on less ethanol in the fuel. With the percentage today being 10 percent or more I'm thinking of a propane conversion. Propane is pretty stable, high octane, doesn't have a spill issue, works at lower temperatures, and keeps well for as long as the bottle is closed.
Parts and kits are available and reasonable when compared to a new carburetor($150-250) or even a rebuild kit for our carbs($40-80).
Has anyone converted their tractor to run on propane or any other alternative fuel ?
I'm hoping to get mine together in the next month for the local vintage tractors and engine show. Weighing options for the short and long run here. Mine runs, but not as well as I'd like. The carb was pretty beat as it had sat for some time. I soaked for a few days, maybe even a whole week to get the junk out and a kit is relatively expensive for these it seems.
