OK a couple more two cents. Old engines have a water problem. That is old time farmers would run them on straight water!!!!! I do mean some crappy water. Anti freeze has water pump lube and anti rust qualitys and then the anti freeze itself. You get nice little flakes of rust build up in the narrow water passages and now you have over heat problems. The other is you have a plugged up radiator. Not internal..but external. Grass-chaff gets in all of the air passages. Air hose time. Water pumps with worn impellers can also be a pain in the butt. Those are a few of my tips. Jeffcat

Hi all,

I stopped by to do some further evaluation on the tractor. Near as I can tell, according to the serial #208662 or something like that, the tractor should be a wd45, or at least the rear half. the radiator shroud has a faded wd sticker with no 45. The research that I have done says if it is a wd there will be a bolt on plate on the right side of the engine block. If it is a wd45, there is no plate. This one has a bolt on plate so it should be a wd. Correct? The serial number I was referring to was located on the top of the trans housing. Is it possible that this tractor is a wd with a wd45 rear end?
