WD has a 201 cu in block with a 3 inch high head vs 226 cu in block with a 4 inch head in a WD45. WD block has a bolt on plate on right side, WD45 is solid cast. WD45 has a half-inch longer stroke crankshaft with Power Crater, not flat top pistons. WD standard was magneto ignition, WD45 was battery ignition. WD hand clutch had two discs, WD45 had three discs to handle more power, standard rear tires were an inch wider. Straight shifter is a WD, although late 1952, WD had constant mesh transmission with curved shifter. WD45 were all curved shifter. WD45 came out Spring 1053, although some WDs were still built then.

Where were the bolt on plates located on the right side of the block? I am trying to look at a picture of a WD-45 on the internet for sale trying to pick out the features of a WD-45.

The plate is behind the oil filter and distributor on the right side.

Don't know what kind of of tractors you have but they are not Allis if your plate is behind the carb.

Plates on left behind carb were most likely a repair for a block cracked due to freezing. The water jackets are known to have a problem there if you let the water freeze. Never that way from factory.
