A WD will have a snap coupler, hydrolics, traction booster, and a standard pto. WC's don't have hydro's, or snap coupler. WC's pto is up under the motor and requires a stub shaft to connect it to the back. They have the same motor but different rpm's and power. On a WC, the serial number will be on the rear end on the transfer case {what I call it}, that is just below the seat on the styled WC's. Find your serial number and post it so I could look it up for you. Good Luck!!

sounds like your 3rd rear hsing is a steel one instead of cast iron these were used during ww II manufacture. look above the top of the "bowl" on the rear of the diff. hsng. flat surface around the top and rear numbers are 3/8 to 1/2 inch tall may be covered by paint. stamping will face you same as the ones on the square pad.

WC had hand brakes, no hand clutch, no hydraulics, no lift arms, a completly different throttle setup, the transmission was way under the gas tank with a long shift lever, it had a solid mounted drawbar, not the removable one of the WD, had different sized rear tires, different style rims, the battery (if it even had one) wasmounted on the side of the frame, the WD was right in front of the seat. WC serial number is directly above the PTO on the rear housing, starts wit WCxxx, WD serial number is on the left brake housing stamped into a flat spot on the casting. Starts with WDxxx. Engines were basically the same, with some differences in manifolds and governers.

I was told that a WC has a rear axle that looks like an old style truck rear end and that the brakes are controlled by a handle that comes out of the top of the final drive housing.
The serial number is stamped on a cast pad on the top of the rear end housing.
I havn't seen a WD but have been told that the engine in a WC & WD are the same.
If I can find an E-mail I got with the differences, I'll forward it to you.
I have been wanting to get two WC's from a salvage yard in my area but every time I go there to talk to the owner about them, we start talking about something else and I don't get a chance to ask about them. I'll try to get there again once the snow clears.
Hope this info was helpfull, Eric Perry
