I've got a good 262 gas engine out of an A2 combine and my brother N law has an old WD with a froze and busted engine .I know the frame rails and steering shaft will have to be lengthened.Didn't the WD 45 diesel have a 262 motor,is it the same? It looked like a project tractor to me.will it bolt up?

I think in the combine it was rated at about 60 hp. Good luck on the project.

The 262 or 230 will go into the WD. A WD45D uses the same frame rails as the WD. I have friend that put the 262 in a WD. You need the plate from the back of a 45D engine to mate up. Or make a plate. The WD flywheel is a little short to reach the starter. Have to move starter ring back just a little. A 45D flywheel works perfectly. Will have to remove the front end to get engine in and remove all crank mechanisms. After engine is in then you can put the front end back in. Have to fabricate a front motor mount. Bend frame rail down a little for govenor housing. May have to cut frame rail for oil filter. The radiator will have to be moved forward over pedistal. Radiator will have to be modified by moving lower outlet to one side or find a 45D radiator. The hood will have to be lengthened about 6inches. Hope this helps. Good Luck

The AIIs that I owned had a 230 engine, not the 262 engine you referenced. The WD-45D had a 230 diesel, the D-17 diesel had the 262D engine. I am not at all sure you are right, in thinking the frame, etc has to be extended. The radiator comes all the way to the front of the frame on the WD-45D, it is not at all set back like the WD and WD-45.

Today's Featured Article - Measuring with Calipers - by Staff. The legs of inside calipers are curved outward at the extremities to facilitate measuring small holes, while outside caliper legs have a large curve inward to increase their capacity for large work. Firm-joint calipers are adjusted approximately by the hands and then set to the feel of the work by tapping them on a metal surface. It is a common practice when opening calipers by this means to tap the top of the joint. It is better, if possible, to tap the inside of the legs, as repeated blo ... [Read Article]
