They were in widespread use by the farmers when I was growing up.

Start them on gasoline, when the engine was warmed up, swap to the main tank of kerosene.

Never had a G. Did have an A, 2 B,s an H, a 520 and a 630. Nothing runs like a Deere!

Ww bored out the cylinders in on of the B's and put pistons as big as your head in added larger tires left over from the A. Talking about a hoss! There wasn't a tractor around that would touch it.
