I have a friend that got either a WC or WD with his farm and wants to know where to find the serial number tag.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

The easiest way to identify the WC is the hand brakes. It also has a very long shifter handle that goes to the tranny which is located down under the gas tank.

The WD/WD-45s have a hand clutch on the RH side as well as the normal foot clutch.

The WD/WD-45s also have the "spin-out" adjustable rear wheels although sometimes these are replaced with non adjustable wheels.

The sheet metal is almost identical so from a quarter mile away, the tractors might look the same.

WC is stamped just above the oil fill plug on the rear differential. WD is stamped in a flat spot on the rear of the left brake housing. Just above the spring hole and below the stamped cover.

Thanks. Is there an easy way to tell if it is a late WC or a WD. Seems to me like the late WC's looked similar to the WD's.

Early WC where unstyled and the hood was a whole lot different then the late ones. The latter one look a lot like the WD/WD45 but the placement of the transmission is different on the WC then on the WD/WD45. Best way to know for sure what it is, is getting the serial number and then matching it to figure out the year.

Fast way to tell the difference is the rear end of a WC looks like it might have come out of a truck, round center section. Rear end of a WD or 45 (same) is a special casting not like a traditional round looking rear end. It has a cover plate, nearly flat, on the back. A WC has a long shift lever too, WD and 45 (one straight and the lataer with a short bend to the rear), are shorter.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: JB Weld - by Staff. JB Weld is basically an epoxy glue that does an exceptionally good job of bonding to cast iron and steel along with several other materials. As I mentioned, it is so common that I have yet to buy a tractor that did not have JB Weld used somewhere. It is sometimes used so well you can't tell its there and other times used as a sloppy quick fix. Finding where and how it can be used correctly is key to whether you are using it as an "inelegant hack" or an integral solution to difficult and expens ... [Read Article]
