I have a RC sitting in Austin, MN with a WC engine. It came from WI, and with the extra slow gear of the RC should make an excillent puller. I assume the WD or the WD45 engine would also fit. The radiator, hood, and gas tank is also a WC to cover the larger engine. Eme if you need more help. But I will also say I like to see the tractors restored to original condition.

I have heard about some RCs bringing some pretty decent money lately. If the prices I have heard are true. You could put the correct engine in the RC (any model C or CA or B125 engine will work) and sell it and get enough money to purchase a decent '45 and stick some money in your pocket.

I'm not sure about the clutch housing, but the frame rails are pretty much the same. If you're putting the 45 motor in the RC, you're going to have to baby the drivetrain some; the RC has the same transmission as a WC, but the pinion in the rear isn't straddle mounted (it has a bearing behind it but none in front) so if you get it in a gripe the pinion could try to climb the ring gear, so you get a BANG and a tow rope. Check the I&T manual, it shows the differences between the two. You'll also need the 45 radiator and I think the hood, too.

A Model 60 combine also has the same motor. The only differece is the govenor. Runs a little faster.
