The W may refer to the W-201 engine. The D probably came after the WC model.

Chris, We do starter repair and exchanges. Does your starter have a tag on it with the model number of the starter? We might be able to help ya out. I'm doing a WD Speed Patrol starter for one of our customers right now...

It was the logical name for a tractor that followed the WC. Now the UC & WC names-that is a different story. You'd have to ask great uncles Ulysses Chalmers & Wesley Chalmers where they ever came up with UC & WC!

WD WAS THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF NOMENCLATURES FOR VARIOUS FARM AND INDUSTRIAL RELATED EQUIPMENT.
THEY WERE THE BRAIN CHILD OF AN ENGINEER/CHEMIST WORKING FOR AC IN THE EARLY 30'S TO LATE 40'S. SOME ITEMS SUCH AS WD10 AND WD 15, WD 27 AND WD 34 WERE ONLY AVAILABLE IN CERATIN PARTS OF THE COUNTRY WHILE SOME EQUIPMENT SUCAH AS WD 19, WD 7, WD 5, AND WD 18 WERE ONLY SOLD OVERSEAS SO THEY WOULD NOT BE AVAILABLE OR SEEN IN THE US. PROBABLY THE MOST WIDELY KNOWN AND USEABLE OF ALL THE WD ITEMS IS THE LAST ONE AND STILL THE MOST POPULAR----- ----- ----- ----- ----- -----WD40.

That is intresting, Where did you get this infomation? I have never seen or heard of these models exceept WD-40 and I believe that was a McCormick deering model. The research info on this site does not even list these models. I wonder why your list does not include the WD45 which was a very popular model around here. Please let us know the source of information you found this in. I really would like to read and find out more about these unusual Allis Chalmers models you have listed.

Sid, I don't think plowboy knows what he is talking about. The only "WD" tractors were the WD and WD45. There might have been prototypes with other names that I don't know about but I don't think so. If people don't know what they are talking about they should not post. All it does is confuse people that are looking for info.

Today's Featured Article - Maintaining Rubber Tires - by Staff. The broad use of rubber tires on farm tractors and machinery has resulted in a great saving in both time and operating costs since the time of steel wheels. There are, however, certain basic fundamentals in the care of tires that should be followed carefully if the owner is to derive maximum benefit from his or her investment. First and most important is to maintain proper pressure for the work at hand. Your best guide to proper inflation is the operator's manual or instruction book tha ... [Read Article]
