the reason i asked the question about the tire size was i seen a W series tractor with 36 or 38 inch rear wheels at a tractor pull not to long ago it did not look right to me but i might have been wrong i have been tractor pulling for almost 12 years now that was the first one i ever seen with tires like that.

Any idea as to if the parts breakdown diagrams show different gears for the different tire sizes?

Ahhhh... reminds me. When I was on the farm, the old WD manual showed it as having 38" tires as an option. I've *never* seen one in r/l, though. To me, that's about all a WD45 would need to make it an ideal pullin' tractor. When doing straight pulling back on the farm - without mounted equipment - the 28" tires were a disadvantage. The raw pulling traction was the weak link. And obviously, the final gearing would need to be different.

Does anyone know of a stock WD or '45 that has the original 38" wheels?

Look in the tractor photo ads on 8/28 at the D-15 high crop. I can't tell what size they are, but I've always been told that the WC cane tractors came with 36" tires. There are people though that run them in antique and say they came from the factory like that. Makes them real tough to beat when they're beefed up.

I don't know about any of them but the WC. They had 24 " pressed steel on the early ones, 28"cast wheels on the later ones, and 36 " on Hi clearance. I could be mixed up on some of that and this is only info that I have been told by other tractor people. So as far as I know, a WC never had 38" wheels.

I've seen a WC puller with 38" tires and "hit don't look narmal!" :-) WD45 and WD tractors came with 28 inch rear tires for the most part (except for possibly some high-clearance models as already noted), D15 (and I think D14 and D17) came with 26 inch, and B/C/CA came with 24 inch. That's the extent of my tire size knowledge ...

Standard size on the D17 was 28 inch. Smaller D series had 26. That was a mistake on the D14- should have had larger tires.

I have two original "Hi-crop" WCs. An unstyled '38 & a styled '39. These tractors have 36" wheels & also a special 6:1 ratio rearend as opposed to the 4:1 ratio. If original these tractors will have no provision for mounting fenders & will have a single front wheel.
