I did not look the numbers up but just to let you know. The WD and WD45 engines can be swapped as easy as just taking the one out and putting the other in straight bolt on thing. Over the years many have had that done to them. Shoot when I got my W Speed Patrol it had a W45 engine sitting in it but that machine is based on the WC tractor.
Also my WD45 has the straight shifter on it but I have run the numbers and it is a WD45

Old, if it is a WD-45 it will have the tranny with the hellical cut gears. That transmission comes with a curved shifter. Allis began installing that newer tranny in the WDs starting with Ser.#127007 in 1952. The earlier WDs came equipped with straight cut geared trannys with a straight shifter.
The two shifters are not compatible with one another without modification.
That's not to say that a helical cut tranny could not have had a straight shifter adapted to it. For what reason, I cannot imagine, though.
I agree that the 201 WD and 226 WD-45 engine blocks are interchangeble and that accounts for Allis furnishing the newer WD-45 block as a replacement for both the WD and WD-45 tractors once their stock of the earlier blocks was exhausted.

As I said the WD45 I have has the straight shifter on it or so close to straight it is not funny. I did check the numbers before we got it to make sure it was a WD45 since it had the straight shifter but the block did not have the bolt on plate so at first figure a mutt but found it to be a true WD45
