My dad got his dads WD that he bought new in 1949 this week. I went and got it and the steering wobbles bad. I have read the archived posts here about it. Started tearing it down today. The bearing in the pedestal is going to have to be replaced. I took the spindle off, took the set screw out of the top gear. I am thinking the shaft is going to have to come out. I tried driving the shaft off the top gear, no go. Am I going to have to take the rod (tube) out for the hand crank? I am thinking I need to so I can drive the shaft out. Am I thinking right? Any advice on this project would be appreciated.

My dad on the tractor and his older brother who drove it home, over 20 miles in Feb. of '49.

I do also have most of a WD45 engine but I pulled it out of my W speed patrol due to low oil pressure

Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
