Can a WD be switched over to snap coupler, and if not , why do they have lift arms like the WD 45? How was an implement attached to make up the three points?

I swapped the snap coupler bell from my WD-45 to my WD so I could use my S/C blade on it because that's my loader tractor. I have since picked up a parts WD-45 so I will probably put a S/C bell back on the "45" when I get a roundtuit.

Anyone using these as regular work tractors should change to the "Snap-Coupler"---WITH the Quick-release Latches on the arms...!!!! They make a MUCH Safer system for the hitch...Especially when plowing... For using a "True 3-Point", you need an after-market conversion that slaps into the snap-coupler
and uses the lift arms to raise the 3-point.. They work real well...and are not difficult to remove..

Yes the snap coupler bell will fit right in where the big pin is. You just have to add the chain and release lever up on top. The hands also fit right on the arms. The original "pin" hitch WD used collars that slipped over the end of each arm and were locked on with an "L" shaped set screw. I have an 80R rear mount sickle mower that uses a collar like this.

I have the snap coupler and release chain on ebay right now that you could use. I do not have it listed on ebay, but I also have the release lever if needed.

Today's Featured Article - Timing Your Magneto Ignition Tractor - by Chris Pratt. If you have done major engine work or restored your tractor, chances are you removed the magneto and spark plug wires and eventually reached the point where you had to put it all back together and make it run. On our first cosmetic restoration, not having a manual, we carefully marked the wires, taped the magneto in the position it came off, and were careful not to turn the engine over while we had these components off. We thought we could get by with this since the engine ran perfectly and would not need any internal work. After the cleanup and painting was done, we began reassembly and finally came to t ...
