The WC and WD are very similar tractors.
The WD was basicly the replacement model for the WC. The WC was made from the early 30's up to 1948, The WD started production in 1948.
The engines are the same size and many parts will interchange. I belive the wd had a few more horse power tho.
The WC has a different transmission and it has no provision for hydraulics, and it has hand brakes, not foot brakes.
I'm sure there are other differences, but can't think of them right now.

WD also had the hydraulic lift arms and the first snap coupler hitch on later models, and a different wide front. The rear ends must be different, too, as the WC rearend could be flipped if you reversed the tractor to give you 4 speeds in "reverse". That couldn't be done with the WD rear end. Throttle and hydraulics went to the quadrant set-up as well. Pto was set up different, some WC's didn't have one. Probably lots of other small things that are different, too.

WD differential can certainly be reversed- in fact, it's easier to do than on the WC. No machining involved, just disassemble, and reinstall pinion gears in opposite position. Many differences between tractors- almost nothing is the same from the clutch rearward.

motors are the same but the WD turns 100RPM faster resulting in 6 more hp., WD has power adjust(spin-out) wheels
