no lead gas in old tractors?

g Since old tractor engines burned leaded gasoline will burning no lead in these engines cause problems? My friend's 1950 John Deere A runs fine on no lead. I have always wondered about burning no lead in engines designed for leaded gasoline.

MGS The lead did help protect the valve seats, so in extreme cases you may see more rapid valve seat wear. If you don't work the tractor real hard you may not see any problems.
Ken As you can see I do not check this discussion board that often but I noticed your post. I have had a 1953 Super C for 10 years and I run unleaded gas that I have added lead to. I purchased a container of this lead additive when I bought the tractor. One container treats something 20 gallons of unleaded gas. I have not had any problems using this mixture. I purchased this lead additive at a tractor supply store. Hope this helps.

Ken
