The fact that Harry's tractors were all gasoline & diesel(not kero)always seemed odd to me too. I guess he knew the Euro market better than Henry? Or, the kero setup was the least expensive compromise alternative to gas. Makes you wonder if Harry ever argued about developing a diesel for the 9N/2N, but Henry didn't want to outsource it, or WWII came along & got in the way.
Come to think of it, though, Henry would have had to retool a bunch of the N's sheet metal to fit a diesel in there. Hard to keep production costs down making changes like that.
