In 1960 I had my WD stolen from the field across the road where it was sitting overnite. When recovered the serial Number had been welded up,ground down smooth and the area painted over . Identification was positive by us when we looked under the Hood where my Dad had Brazed on a small Brass Plate with our Name and Tractor Id Number Punched into it. We had all our tractors identified some way like that,but did not advertise the fact to any one.

Some of the early WD's had the number stamped to the right of the left brake cover.

My WD 45 has no serial number where that tag is either, in fact, it has no flat spot there. Appears to be made without it. The 45 has a WD rear end. My other tractor, a WD has that flat spot and has a serial number. What is up with the 45 tractor?

Serial number should be on the left rear end housing on a flat spot just under the brake cover. It should start with WD. If you take your left hand and lay it on the left rear tire and your right hand and lay it on the seat you should be able to look down and see the flat spot. From there you will probably have to carefully clean that area off to see the numbers. A rag and a can of carb cleaner work well

That's the casting date. So your WD is probably made in 1950.
The serial number is always stamped in, not cast.
If you don't have one (keep in mind that they are often covered with layers of paint or dirt), you could have a tractor that had the rear housing replaced. But in that case, the mechanic was supposed to have copied the number over to the new housing.

The casting date makes the most sence of all ,the flat spot on rear below brake is there but the number is missing looks to have been sanded when it was painted in the past,Thanks for all the input. Don

Today's Featured Article - Earthmaster Project Progress Just a little update on my Earthmaster......it's back from the dead! I pulled the head, and soaked the stuck valves with mystery oil overnight, re-installed the head, and bingo, the compression returned.
