The WC has a long shifter rod... and the WD has a relatively short shifter... WC and WD had different transmission locals... Since i have been working with 2 WDs i can answer the second one as well... the hand clutch operates tractor movement secondaraly from the foot clutch (i.e PTO can keep spinning as long as the foot clutch is engaged... however, the tractor's fwd. rev. movement is only capable if both the foot and hand clutch are engaged) the hand clutch is a luxury when working with the arm-strong steering system... you can feather it in and slightly roll the tractor while still being able to steer and predict tractor swing.

Back towards you you'll feel it snap in, remember "opposite of John Deere". Also the hand clutch works like having a 2 stage clutch, for example the old 9N's if you were brush hogging and you push in the clutch it will still push the tractor ahead because of the blades still spinning. Well hope you get her back together soon you'll have a great time with it and then want to do another!

You can adjust the linkage to move the hand clutch handle away from your knee when the clutch is in the engaged posiition; or you can move your knee. Sorry, just could not resist. Good luck with your WD.

My hand clutch almost hits my knee too. It's not supposed to do that (we had a WD45 years ago that I used quite a lot before we traded it in on a D15 Series II) - worn linkage and worn discs in the clutch. Some of it may be adjusted outside, but I'd have to split the tractor I guess to adjust the rest ....
