Report to Moderator

Fellas, Lookin at a 1953 WD45 a feller is lookin to sell and noticed that on the hydrolic line that runs under the seat where you plug in a remote cylinder that there is some sort of valve with an adjustment knob on it.I own two WD45"s a 55" an a 56" an neither one of them have this valve. My question would be what exactly does this valve do, and is it original? My guess on the valve is that it could possibly be for adjustin the "fall" rate since the cylinder is one way. well thanks for any help on this, Hoss

Fellas, thanks so much for the info, as always a real big help. I was a bit confused as the other 45's I have do not have this valve. Must have been an Xtra back in the day. Thanks again, Hoss

When using a semi mounted plow on a WD-45 or D-17 up to and including series III, it was essential to have the transport valve. You adjusted the valve so the lift arms picked up the front of the plow before the cylinder on the plow picked up the rear. Tom

WD45 did come out in 1953, serial number 146607 was the first one. That valve you"re talking about is likely a transport valve, commonly used on a D17. Has two positions, screwed all the way in, or all the way out. Oil flows in both positions, but if memory is right, screw it all the way out when using a towed machine with a lift cylinder. ie, disc, etc. Op manual and I&T manual, together, have a long explanation about using it, and what it does.

If I remember right the WD45 didn't come out till 1954. And yes some had a flow control in that area
