There's a lot of Fordson steel wheel tractors around, but maybe not very many 1921 Kerosene models. I turned down 2 at 1500 for both. Both engines were frozen and the sheet metal was badly rusted on both. They were both gas.

Not seen a 1921 Fordson but like iddee said, there are alot of fordsons around on steel wheels and rubber. I have a Farmall H that has a gallon gas tank to start it with and warm up, and then you can switch it over to kerosene. Jack

We use to have an old JD "A", had the two tanks on it.

Petcocks on each cylinder to relieve the pressure until it got going, then close them. They were right next to the spark plugs and if not careful would bite you good. It ran a magneto that would make blue fire jump an inch.
