I have aquired my brother-in-law's 1953 WD. Would like to know if anyone has knowledge of a slower ratio ring and pinion setup or who would manufacture one. The WD is geared too fast for the track. She runs fine, just needs a lower first gear speed. thanks for any info in advance!

I think the later WD's and WD 45 had a lower first gear, but you would have to swap the whole rear.

Sorry, Will. I don't need more horsepower. The class I won with this tractor last summer only allows 35 horsepower on the dyno. My WD is right on the limit permitted in this class. Therefore I need to travel a little slower to avoid powering out. This 4500# class should be 45 horsepower, but then I would win it with my snortin' IH504, which I did before they dropped the HP limit. This group doesn't like giving prize money to out of county pullers. (They take our entry money tho)

I think that you should add more Power instead of tearing into the gears.
