Are rocker arms and rods same for WD and WD45?

I'm getting ready rear down my WD for a complete rebuild this winter and I found a dead WD 45 that has been sitting outside without a muffler for a few years. Definitely froze up but the owner said it was running when parked. ($200-wide front) Will the good rocker arms and push rods from the WD work on the 45?

I loaded the spark plug holes with PB Blaster, got the manifold off and also filled those holes to let soak until I drag it home next week. Pretty rusty in the exhaust holes. If it miraculously frees up and runs what, if any, damage will I do if I run the tractor awhile before I tear down the motor to replace valves etc.? Anyone ever have a similar situation where the valves actually re-seated?

If the WD is a '51 or newer, it has the "tall" head as was used on the WD-45. If it is an earlier WD, it will have the "short" head which uses a taller rocker assembly not compatible with the "tall" head. I believe there is no difference in the pushrods, tho.

From the time I was a young boy growing up in Jacksonville, Florida, I would spend a considerable amount of time helping my father repair or rebuild equipment and engines, etc. on our 2 1/2 acre "spread". Pop always dreamed of having more acreage out in the country where he could retire and tinker as much as he wanted and often reminisced about his boyhood days on his grandfathers farm in Montecello, ...
