I wouldn't say these 'power kero' conversion are super rare here in Oz...I'm guessing this one was fitted after delivery as the spec plate isn't stamped BK.

The engine in the pic was built in the 1960's, power kero (TVO) was still available here in the early 70's and beyond.

Not something seen all that often in the UK though.

TVO was available here until the early '80s as we had a combine on the farm that ran on it and the old chap didn't go to a diesel combine until about' 82 or'83

I've sold all but one of my engines knowing I'd never finish them all, I've only kept my 1929 Junior A.....I also have more than enough other projects at hand.
