I have unstyled WC ser. #69188 bought new by my father. I know a lot of people think the slanted exaust pipe is for the disstolite fueled tractors, not so. Ours is and has alwas been a gas fueled tractor and still has the original manifold. It has alwas had the slanted pipe with the pinched end on it, altho the pipe has been replaced a few times. Incedently the manifold was marked with G. jimg

Is it possible that WC or early WCs used the slant pipe manifold and when they got to WDs they made two manifolds?

jimg centwis, David's tractor is styled, all the unstyled WCs like you are talking about had the side exhaust, marked either "k" or "g" depending on how the engine was set up. After the styled came out in 39 and up to engine # w106509 both gas and kerosene tractors had the side exhaust, after the above s/n only kerosene engines had the side exhaust. My 41 WC is kero and has engine #w-119831k, so I would guess they begain to offer the through the hood muffler in late 1940. I'm getting this from my 1965 partsbook, which agrees with the book that came with mine in 41. By the way, my parts book shows a muffler offered as an option on the side exhaust, has anyone ever seen one? I posted a pic in the parts & pieces area. I've never seen a real one, just ones people made.

That confirms my thoughts that it was an early 40's tractor. I am currently restoring a 37 WC, I bought decals from Lyle Wacker and he sent me a picture of a muffler on an unstyled tractor with a 45 degree manifold. He sells them and a canvas shutter for that tractor. Lyle is very helpful in the restoration knowledge. Until it is my turn to help some one, thanks. Dave

I have a 47 WC out back that has the slanted manifold. It seems apparent to me that the all fuel tractors came with the slanted manifold. You changed the set up for fuel by turning the plate upside down, hence the K and G stamped on the plate.

Dave: If this is true it certainly makes sense. Dave.
