No, there was no such thing as a Super WD45. All were equipped with either the 4 cylinder 226 cid gas engine or the 6 cylinder 230 cid diesel.

I think where this legend arose was when someone put a 262 CI gas engine out of a gleaner in a WD45 Diesel. This was a lot cheaper than repairing the original engine in the tractor and was almost a bolt in deal. Plus, now you had a 65 - 70 HP WD45. At Marshaltown Iowa this year there was one of these conversions, it was decaled WD55, which I thought was appropriate. Have a G'day. TED

Jeff, I believe that there was. The basic WD-45 s had 40 - 47 HP per the book. However, my WD-45 has a larger motor in comparison and the grill is also made different. I may be wrong on this but I believe that there was the option to have a larger motor over the basic WD-45. The larger motor supposedly has 90 HP. Like I said, I may be wrong but this is what I was told.

Sorry Jeff, I was wrong, the WD45 was not made in a "Super Version"
