I just picked up an old WD. I'm not very familiar with orange tractors -- I've owned and restored green ones. These two extra cylinders are confusing! (just kidding!) What is the cubic inch displacement of a WD? Also, are there any common problem areas on a WD that I need to watch out for? Thanks, Bryan in KS

Replacing the manifold gaskets is not a bad job.... You may have to get a few new studs ( they get burned, and rust ). I stick the asbestos gaskets to the manifold with High Temp Silicone, then they seem to last a lot longer....and they stay on when you slip the manifold around, trying to get everything lined up..!!! Carefully tighten it up...you can crack the manifold ..... but end up with it pretty tight....

I have always used 90wt in the transmission, 140wt in the rear end, and 140 in the final drives... Be sure to know where each filler is....don't put trans oil in the hydrolic.!!! We have always used 10-30 or 10-40 engine oil in the hydrolic..... never had any problem...

I own a WC Allis and the WD share the same block and cubic inches as the WC. The only difference that comes to mind w/o looking in my books would be the RPM's. My WC is original in the size of the motor at it kicks out 32 maximum belt horsepower. Hope that could give you an idea!

common problem is rain water getting past shift lever boot and freezing in transmission cavity area. drain the trans, pto, hydraulic area and install new oil. also the final drive probalby have not had new oil in 60 years. i always like to do that to help the old bearings. you need to remove the bottom pans to clean and get the goo out.

You almost took the words from my fingers!! I could only add that with a good boot on the shift lever you are OK, only when they get cracked is there a problem. And a WD is a fine tractor. 201 cubic inches, 34.63 PTO hp if I remember.

WD's were classed as a 35 horsepower tractor.

They are pretty much awsume tractors... You will need to watch for any moisture on the "dip stick"...may indicate a cracked web in the block...not any reason to tear it down, but it is very common... They can be Pinned, or sealer in the water jacket will stop it... If it is in good shape, it may very well out last you..!!! If it does not have the "snap-coupler"....get one..the old drawbar was mounted with a thru-bolt...was very dangerous, pulling a mounted plow...If the bolt ( Pin) came out....The plow would kick up....hitting the operator... with the Snap-coupler...and upper arm snaps...the plow just drops off the tractor..

Thanks for all the great feedback. It sounds like I need to check out things just like I would for a JD 40. I just brought it home tonight. Other than a pesky rear tire leak, it was an uneventful trip. The old tractor seems to run fine. The transmission got stuck in reverse, though. As I was manipulating (and cussing at) the shifter, it pulled right out of the transmission! I'll look at it a little closer tomorrow night. What grade of oil should I run in the transmission and finals? Thanks again for the great posts. Bryan in KS.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Lead Substitutes - by Mike Schordine. Lead was oriinally added to gasoline as an upper cylinder lubricant. It lubes the valves and seats. If you rebuild the motor, you could use hardened seats and valves, and unleaded fuel. But if your old tractor runs good, a simple lead substitute added to the gas is a perfectly reasonable solution. And, if you are like me, your tractor is under cover, but it sits outside. So with every temperature change, the humidity in the air collects in the fuel tank, in the form of water. ...
