Ok I have the tractor at home and have done alot of studying of it.From all the help i gathered from all of you,it has the wrong engine in it.It has the bigger engine in it.They changed the hood and grille for sure.Now the question is is it worth restoring it with that engine or should i look for the smaller engine or should i just forget it and part it out?Thanks again for all the help,Terry.

I say fix it up. It will be a good running tractor no matter which engine it has. I have seen stock RCs pull surprizingly well at antique tractor pulls, sure they have less power than a WC, but still they do well. Another reason to fix it up is it is orange and anything orange is worth fixing, and when you get it fixed you will find things orange just run better.

Has anyone considered that this tractor could be a WC with an RC rear axle?

Terry, if it was mine I would try to find the needed RC parts before I parted it out. The engine will be the easy part as any B,C,CA or B power unit engine will work. I think the C engine with a "CE" prefix would be the correct block if the right numbers are important to you. The more difficult parts will be the clutch, pressure plate, flywheel, hood and grill. I believe that those parts are peculiar to the RC. If you decide to part it, the desireable parts are the rear rims, if they are original RC items, the "pumpkin" or differential carrier as the gears are slower ratio than WCs and maybe the housing that has the serial number stamped. Most everything else is standard WC fare and the value would be the same as WC parts, which around here are pretty cheap

Hi Terry! Might be worth keeping it and restoring it the way it is with the bigger engine. I think some of the fella's on this site talked about how the power-to-weight ratio with the small original engine wasn't that great. Hense, the reason for the low sales of the RC. Could be the reason why sometime in that tractors life it got a different engine. The original one got "ventilated" or it just gave up the ship! I think their pretty cool lookin anyway though.... How's the C coming?
