Just bot a WD45 today. Where do I look for the Serial#. Will the Serial # indicate the year? If not, how do I find the year of manufacture? Which one or ones of the manuals available through this site do I need to rebuild the engine, transmission or other parts of the tractor? Where can I get new decals? Thanks in advance.

Chuck & Glen,
Look for the serial # on the BACK of the differential housing as shown on Bryan Smith's web page

Duey, You Da-Man! It's there. Now I have to find a cross reference, as the referenced serial numbers here have an additional digit. Have a few sites that I know to check already. Many thanks: GLenn

Sorry, left out the location. To the left lower part of this page, double click on serail #'s and choose accordingly. It'll reference the starting #for each year. Also, everyone has the decals, I think they're available at this site via the parts link. Regards: Glenn

Cool! Just got my WD45 yesterday. The serial # is supposed to be on top of the left differential brake housing. That said, I still have not found mineż If it doesn't smoke and the oil pressure's ok, I would recommend against rebuilding. All these sites have reproduction manuals, user, service and even parts! I'm bidding on a complete set of decals at a certain auction site, so wait until next week to buy your set there. Keep us updated and good luck. There's no way it's rougher than mine. :)

It's not on the top- it's near the top of the backside of the housing, but on the vertical face of the housing. Visible from behind the tractor. Bryan's site has good pictures of where to find the numbers.

Today's Featured Article - A 1937 John Deere Unstuck - by Gary Hickman. Here is my story of how I got the pistons out of a 1937 JD B that the engine had been stuck for about 14 years: About 12 years ago my Dad gave me one of the tractors I ran as I was growing up on our farm in central Nebraska. The engine on this tractor, a 1937 John Deere "B", had been stuck for 2 years before he gave it to me. This last spring (1999) I hauled the tractor to our 2 acre lot in St. Libory Nebraska where it joined my antique machinery collection, at that time a 1929 Caterpillar T ... [Read Article]
