WC/WD Comparison

Cabin fever...

How do the WC and WD compare: weight, horsepower, cubic inch, wheel size, gas tank capacity, drawbar assembly, fenders, hood, overall length and width?

Perhaps a simpler question is: What parts do they share? Were they ever made simultaniously?

We owned a 1946 WC for many years, but I have had very little contact with a WD. I know the brakes are different...hand vs. foot. The transmission is different too, right? I had heard once the WC transmission is actually a Ford truck transmission. Is this correct?

I appreciate your responses to my rambling questions.

Thanks you,
Glenn F. (The Trivia Guy)

Tires and sheet metal were the same, same basic 201 engine bumped to a few more hp via higher rpm, but beyond that- totally different. Biggest differences beyond the fact that the WC had no hydraulic system were the hand clutch which gave live pto and hydraulics, plus Power-Shift wheels (an industry first). I think the reference to a truck transmission is speculation- never heard of any direct interchange. WD replaced the WC in 1948- no, they were not made at the same time. Drawbars? Of course they are different- Just look at them- the WD first had the pin hitch for mounted equipment=- then AC came with the Snap-Coupler hitch. Snap-Coupler is not the snappy latches on the lift arms- Snap-Coupler refers to the bell housing under the center of the tractor that the drawbar attaches to. You back into a mounted plow or cultivator, and the ring on the drawbar "snaps" into place in the bell housing. WD also had the Traction Booster system- which transferred weight of mounted implements to the rear drive wheels to increase traction under adverse conditions.

The WD and WC used the same engine but because of the transmission and a few other things the WD had a little more HP. And depending on if its a styled or unstyled WC a lot of parts will swap out on them. At least in the sheet metal area and engine parts
