I have a kersone model WC. It has a small tank under the hood for the gasoline to start on and the valve to swich over to the large tank to run on. The intake and exaust manafold is all one unit to heat up the intake to help vaporize the kersone. My questione is how rare is this tractor I have never seen one like it before? It runs like a top however the clutch disc sticks on the splins on the input shaft. And that makes it a little sticky to drive. Wink Thanks for any help!

I would say that they were not rare to start with, but most have been converted to gasoline-only use with higher compression pistons and 'cold' manifolds.
If yours is truly still set up for Kerosene/distillate (tractor fuel, to some), it is unusual and probably rare. But not necessarily much more valuable (yet).
That's my opinion; others may disagree.
If you are happy with it, that's all that really matters!
As far as the clutch problem, you might be able to spray some penetrant on the splines, as long as you do realize that if you spray some on the lining, it might slip under heavy load. But fine for show.

Thanks for the reply Tram. The problem with spraying on the splines is getting to them. I don't think you can see them from anywhere. When I first tried to bring it home from the sale I chained it to a telephone pole and used the starter to break it lose. Then fired it up and let it slip a little to perhaps free them up. Thinking it was the disc that was stuck to the flywheel or presure plate.(I know it was dangerous but never was too smart) It worked for a couple of times but then did it again. Tried to see what the problem was but could not see the splines or the edge of the disc. Am I missing a plate to look thru? The only one I found is on the bottem and it is to far back to do any good.

You may be able to get some lube on the spline by removing the starter motor,if it has one. The pressure plate is right there: a light,inspection mirror,and piece of flexable tubing should do the trick. One of my WC's is duel fuel.

mine's a dual fuel also, many around, still cool though

removing that plate under the bell housing should be plenty of room and a good view. Bar the engine around and wire brush those splines, spray with brake clean, let dry, then just a touch of anti-seize on a little paint brush will take care of it

view with plate off -

I would do as JoeM said except for the ant-seize which is used to keep non moving parts from sticking. I would use white lube (white grease) which is designed to provide long lasting metal-to-metal lubrication and corrosion resistance for unpainted metals.

Thanks for the replys. I will try the starter trick. However the more I think about it I may be thinking about under my model C where there is no plate to see the splines. Thats what happens when you get older you mind leaves I think or I might be wrong.
