I have A 1938 Farmall F14.It has A small tank that fits in the hood for gas.And A seperate large tank for kerosene.Every other F14 or F12 I have ever seen has the small tank in the big one.
The numbers on the tag say it is A F14.I want to know why mine is different.

Mine has a tank built into the hood for gasoline - holds maybe a gallon.

Some of them just came that way. Are you sure it is a 38? I was under the impression that the earlier ones from 37 had the small tank.

I talked to a guy this morning on the phone that was telling me about his. He said it had seperate tanks. He thought it was made in December of 37. I don't know as I never had one. He did say it was rare because it had two tanks. I will call him back and see what I can find out.

I am sure it is A 38. I checked the numbers and they match A 38.

My TC-9-B Parts book shows that the small tank was used on tractors with serial numbers 128727 and up. The 0-14 must have used that tank also because I have an 0-14 hood hanging in my barn that has the same tank.

I talked to him again a while ago and he said that his was a 38, but the later ones had the small tank insyead of the built in tank. He didn't know when or where the change occured.

The F-12s had the gasoline starting tank built-in to the back of the main kerosene-distillate tank. This caused trouble if stopped whilst burning kerosene as the fuel pump, lines and carburetor were filled with kerosene. This kerosene would have to be drained from the system before trying to start a cold engine. These tractors had a little upright header tank (about 1 inch diameter and about 4 inches long with a line from the fuel pump and a line to the carburetor, what did not go to the carburetor went back, via a third line back to the inlet line from the main tank to the pump. This little tank stuck up through the hood just ahead of the main fuel tank.
The W-12, O-12 etc, that burnt kerosene always had the small 1 gallon tank set sideways in the hood. This supplied gasoline by gravity to the carburetor for starting. The main fuel lines and pump only ever had kerosene in them and there was no chance of getting the fuels mixed. The little header tank was just replaced with a simple tee fitting at the front of the main tank, some went to the carburetor and most went back to the main tank. The fpipe in the tank curved up towards the top of the tank to provide about half inch head to the fule at the tee.
Somewhere late 37 or early 38 the F-12/F-14 tractors got the separate starter tank in the hood arrangement, I have seen very late F-12s with the tank in the hood and most F-14s had the tank in the hood though I have also seen the odd F-14 with the starting tank in the back of the main tank as in the earlier F-12s. Possibly a later fix by a farmer or just inconsistencies with IHC
