I used to think that this was possible, but then I remembered my Dad buying a saw frame from one that would not fit the other. Seemed like the width of the frame was 18" on one and 19" on the other, but after 40 years.....the memory fades. As long as the frames are not a different width, I don't see why it would not work. I think the bolt dimensions are the same. Just tape it first to make sure.

Correction- the memory came back a half-day later. I believe the attempted switch was between a JD and the WD.

I took the measurements off my brother's WC frame and compared them to my WD. All the dimensions are the same including the bolt hole locations. even the steering shaft bushing is located in the same place on the frame. I never did such a swap, but my conclusion was that it would be a "bolt-in". Seems I recall this discussion a year or so ago and some people had indicated they had actually put a WD WF in a WC.

I have seen a WC with a wide front, but I don't know what was done to do it. I agree I don't think it is more than a "bolt in" though.

The WC could be had with a factory WFE, but it was a simple arched, non-adjustable cast iron one like a very heavy duty "B" non-adjust. axle. The WD axle would be much easier to find as the WC axles are fairly rare.

The last year or two of production the WC was available with adjustable wide front just like the WD.
