I am looking for a shifting lever and top plate for a 53 WD, this later model has a curved shifter like the 45's.

I have a 1953 "WD" and it doesn't have a curved shifter nor have I ever seen one, are you sure that yours came this way? I'm not saying it didn't just look into it.

The change was made during the production year, and involves different gears in the transmission as well- the WD45 style had the angle-cut gears instead of straight-cut, so it would shift easier.

The top plate, or tower, from a WD, will also fit, but you need to drill the second hole in the top of it- because the curved lever shifter uses two side pins as guides. Just set the tower in your drill press, and run the bit through the existing hole, through the other side, to make the hole for the second pin. Critical thing is to find a tower that is not worn too much for the ball of the shifter to fit in to.

I think you can still buy the shift lever new from AGCO. At least someone else recently gave this answer on this site.
don't know about the top plate.

Yep, shift lever is still available from AGCO - I paid $106.00 for mine. The shaft isn't tapered up to the knob like the original but otherwise it's a direct copy. It didn't help mine on the getting locked in gear problem, though - more work needed ....
