Well, the WC I was going to get for next to nothing turned out to have a cracked block, according to the owner. He said he saw it when he was getting it ready for me. I was looking forward to getting that one, though I still could but it sounds like finding a new block could be pretty tough judging from other posts.
The same old timer has a pretty nice AC WD-45 I'm thinking about. It has an electric-controlled front blade I'd take off, but I think it'd make square baling a lot easier compared to the IH H I'm using....I can see the benefits of live pto now. The H does OK, but it's hard on it to have to shift into neutral when I get into some heavy windrows. Any thoughts or suggestions on what to look for as far as potential problems? He's asking 1500 for the WD-45. Thanks again for all your help. AND the litte AC B is still purring like a kitten thanks to you all through the past few years.

the wd 45 will have a curved gear shift and most likely 14.9 rear tires. i had a wc years ago that the block froze and left a big hole in the block. i made a plate and drilled holes in it and tapped the block and bolted it to the block. i found the thickest gasket and permatext it good luck

Hi: Although it has been 45 years since I had anything to do with a AC WD 45 I still have good memories of the two I had. I think you will be satisfied with the 45 for use in a stop and go situation such as the Baler you use. Before buying test the Hand Clutch,it should snap over center positively and not feel spongy at all. The Engine Clutch should grab with out any slip at all. If Engine,Clutches,Transmission,Tires and Hydraulics seem good the price asked is very reasonable in my opinion.You can not buy much for $1500.00 this day and age.I would say go for it.

WC block are not at all hard to find. I have at least 2 of them. The WC and WD blocks are the same so one form either would work. Now as far as the WD45 make sure it is in fact a WD45 because lots of WDs and sold as WD45. A WD45 engine will not have a bolt on side cover on the right side or the engine but the WC/WD engine has a bolt on side cover. Also a WD45 engine will bolt right in to the WC/WD/and WD45. I also have a WD45 engine laying around so as I said those blocks.engines are not hard to find
