Started working on the wd-45 thats really a 1937 WC, i've got an owners manual for a newer style wc. i really need a parts manual. What holds the radiator in a WC? what are the two u shaped brackets in front of the grill for? does the light control box have to be removed to remove the electric starter? Thanks for the help.

The wc allis ,prior to 1939 was called the "flat-top" because the hood and gas tank was flat. this is also called the un-styled wc.1440, wds,wd45s were all styled and looked pretty much the same.the fenders on my styled wcs and my wds are the same but the brackets are different. the tear-drop gastanks look the same but the fuel outlets are different.the wd outlet is on the left side of the tank and the wc outlet is on the right side. that help or confuse the issue??? I suppose the "correct cops" would jail you if you mixed them up. I always tell them "my tractor I'll put it together as I please" . OT

The front brackets are only for mounting the two-row cultivator. There are also two brackets that mount on the rear axles, near the fenders, to attach the cultivator frame to. The lift linkage is hooked to the power lift unit you once referred to as an over-running clutch. The radiator is held in place with two half inch diameter bolts accessed from underneath, inside the channel iron frame of the tractor, along with the 5/16 bolts on the hood. If your tractor is indeed a '37, unstyled, the electric starter is a bit unusual. Most of the unstyled WC's were hand-cranked.

The only thing that holds the radiator in is two bolts into the bottom radiator frame, and the support it recieves from the hood.
The front brackets are for driving into and attaching the many mounted plows and equipment the WC had.
Yes, the starter will come off without removing the control box, but if it's never been off, it might make it easier on you to have it out of the way.My starter hadn't been off since the late 50's, it took several raps with a rubber hammer to break loose all the built up crud that had found it's way there.
Also I believe a 37 would have been unstyled, since it was thought to be a WD-45, I would think it was a 39 or later

The two u-shaped brackets are probably front mounting points for a cultivator.
