Getting ready to sell my WD or WD45. When I bought it used at an implement dealer, the bill of sale said WD45. It"s decals are WD45.

But a while ago I posted some issues regarding magneto problems and someone reponded that if it had a magneto,........it was NOT a WD45.

I want to be as accurate as possible when selling this tractor.

How can I verify what I have?

Thanks for the help!

Wilman is right about the engine. A 45 engine is all solid cast iron on the oil filter side. A WD engine has the steel plate bolted to it the full length of the block. With the interchangeability of parts between the WD and 45, it's just about impossible to say for 100% what it is. I've seen 45's that had WD engine transplants, WD's that had 45 engines put in them. I would go by the serial #. 146606 and lower = WD. 146607 and up is a 45. A straight shift lever is a WD. A curved lever could be either. I'm pretty sure the first curved lever WD is 127007.

Serial number won"t make a difference if it has a 45 rear end and a WD engine, which it could have....

Best way is to check the engine. WD engine has plate on the side of the engine that covers the push rods. Will be behind your magneto. Than check the serial number for sure to see if it is a 45 or WD.

If everthing is original the WD could have the new WD45 transmission. The last WD's built had the new transmission/rear end. If the shifter is curved on a WD and the serial number is just below 146607 it could be a WD still. One of the last WD's built.

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
