I bought this old WC, 1942 model, with a mounted 5' sickle mower. In C.H. Wendel's AC Story, it is referred to as a model "W" safety mower. Is this correct? Can you get parts such as guards and sections for it? As far as the tractor goes, it ain't much to look at, it had a lot of oil leaks, but it has been sitting in a barn for the last 30 years or so and runs great. More questions to come, I am quite sure.

I am the one with the same mower in I Alley. Its my boys tho. It has a 7ft bar. I wish I could get an enlargement of yours to see how it mounts to the tractor. This one was on a WC. My boy has a 49 WD. I will have to make the pitman which will be no trouble. Im just trying to figure out how it mounts and where what goes where. This one has a pulley that is not grooved. It is held onto the pto shaft by a bolt through ther middle of it dia, and the middle of the pto shaft. It has a V belt running from it to the lower drive pulley. I made a special bolt for it that was missing. That bolt tightens the belt by spreading the distance from tractor to mower. You can get sections and rock guards, and maybe whole sickle from 888 838 3276 Good luck.

Guards and sections would be easy. Might want to make a template of your pitman. That'd be a part hard to find. There is a guy on the imp page wanting one now. Might be neighborly and get him some measurements.
As for the drive, you remove the PTO shaft and put a sprocket or pulley on the pto stub shaft.

Looks like a nice setup. Wish I had room here for something like that. Just sold a WC mower and cult to make some room.

I see it has the front brackets for the mounted cultivator, and the rear wheels reversed for cultivating. If you want a real muscle-builder, get the cultivator! That under hood muffler gassed me one day while cultivating....very sleepy. I laid down in the field and the folks came looking for me. I was about 14.

Can"t see the pto drive...does it drive the mower off the rear of the pto gear box?

Yes, the PTO gearbox has a sprocket and chain to drive the mower. There is no PTO shaft to the back of the tractor.

Guards and sections should pretty much be the same as on most other A/C sickle mowers like the ones for the B and C and those are easy to find
