The 9NAN model used a special vaporizing carb and a fuel tank with two compartments.That's why the sheet metal stamping for your fuel tank has two bezels where fuel caps could be, although only one of them is used. The tractor was started on gasoline and switched to kero once the motor warmed up.
The 9NAN was mostly intended for the export market, especially Europe. Very, very few were sold in the US. For whetever reason, kero was much cheaper there than gasoline.
We have at least one poster (Alan of Scotland) who has an original 9NAN. He reports that carb parts are simply unavailable.
