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?
