Kind of like 2 of the 7 carbs on the "Flaming Four" Tractor. . .

"Flying Dutchman" gives a Much Better Description of the carb set up in the comments under the video than what I 'narrated' in the video. . .

As Per His comment: It "starts on gasoline through carb #1, then runs on kerosene, distillate, or light diesel thru #4-#7, and water or water/alcohol thru #2 and #3 to control pre-ignition and add just a shade of power..."

I just keep coming back again and again like the Evil Twin of a Bad Penny !
