What was It?

Im not very familiar with AC tractors, but I saw a nice find the other day. I pulled into a gas station and there was an old AC tricycle on a trailer there. It had mid and rear cultivators and a big spring under the rear end. It also had power shift rear rims. I spoke to the man and he didnt know what it was. He and his boss were clearing some land for a guy, and the owner said just to take it!. It still had a few small branches hung up on it, along with three flat tires. Was it a C or a CA? In hindsite I probably should have offered him $200 for it. Orange would probably look good beside my old red tractor.

I would certainly try and get it. Maybe for less if the engine doesn't turn though. Check the boot on the shift lever. If it is missing or rotten there could be water in the transmission which could have done damage to it. Especially if it freezes. Don't knowif it gets that cold where you are.

if it had c-channel frame rails down the side of the motor to the radiator it was a WD-WD45. if there were no rails, just the motor bolted to the clutch-torque tube housing, then it was a CA.

That's the best indicator; so obvious, too.

CA and WD had power-shift rear wheels, but the spring under the rear end just confuses me! Unless you mean a coil spring (horizontal) above the front end of the drawbar- that's on a WD, and is part of the Traction Booster, weight transfer system.

Probably a CA since the drawbar spring is more noticable and further back than on the WD. Another feature that "sticks-out" is the high location of the steering drag link; above the gear box. CA has 24" tires vs 28" for WD & WD-45.

Oops- CA also had the Traction Booster system!
