Restoring a WD45 & would like to do a complete job & paint inside of frame rails.
Is there a safe way to remove them without the tractor twisting or falling apart?

Thanks for any info.

The WD45 is built much stronger than the unstyled WC so I agree, both rails could be removed as long as you support it as described. I would add, before you do, take lots of pictures unless you have another one close to look at in order to get everything back together correctly the first time.

I did mine and took both frame rails off, there is no reason you couldn't do one at a time. I would still support the center at the bellhousing.

I just did a WC, removed the motor, then one frame rail, cleaned, repainted, reinstalled, then did the other side. Left the wheels and tires on for stability.

I have been told that it is possible to securely block the front end and the clutch housing and unbolt and remove, paint and reinstall one rail at a time. The tractor can't be moved or hold up its own weight, but it saves taking more things apart. I have never done this myself, but it seems logical.

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
