Can I use a C engine on a WD frame?

A guy has told me about an old small Allis grader that should be able to be picked up fairly cheap. I looked at it from the road and thought it was based on a WD, but could be a C-model powered - I couldn't see it well enough. It has a bad motor, but I have a good running C that I don't use much, so can someone tell me if it's very feasible to put my motor on the grader, even if it turns out to be WD-engined originally? What's involved? Thanks very much.

I've done some AC motor swaping. I would advise against putting a C engine in a WD frame. This would be way under powered. The bell housing bolt patteren is also different, an adaptor plate would have to be made

If it`s a wc grader, or a D grader it needs a 201 or a 226 engine not a 125 cu incher. Email me or call for more info. Tony

I looked at it again last night, and it looks exactly like the one in the "Tractor Photo" archives of the 1949 Allis Chalmers W Speed Patrol. So would that have a 226ci motor? Is that the size of the WD45 motors?

same block, the early WD had different stroke on the crank than the later WD45 and D17.
--Speed Patrol is a good collector tractor, get it.

It is probably on a WC frame. I don't know if the motor swap would work or not.

If it's aWC grader, would this make it an RC grader with a C engine. Would be underpowered but unique. H.B.

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
