wc to E-3 converson ?

Need some help fellows.

i have installed a gleamer E-3 engine in my wc for my son's first pulling tractor. i've taken the flywheel off the wc and installed it on the e-3, made a new oil line to go around the wc's steering rod. i'm using the wc's starter which is + grounded. i have a reprint (E_bay) manual for wc and wd-45, also have I & T manual for both models, nothing on E-3 engines. with me so far? now for some questions that i know are obvious for you fellows but so far a mistery for me.

1. is the E-3 engine + ground? if not what do i need to do to complete the converson? (i cannot find anything in my manuals on politary of the wd-45 engines which i'm assuming is brother to the E-3)

2. The dealer i purchased the E-3 engine from pulled a carburater off a shelf to go with the engine (the combine engine did not have a carb.) it is a Marvel-Scherier TSX-853, does not match with the model for the WD-45 mentioned in the I & T manual. is it the carb i whould be using?

3. the E-3 seems to be throttled by the carb with a maxium engine rpm being limited by the governor. (i'm assuming this since the input to the governor is set with a static adjustment instead of a throttle lever like on the WD-45 pictures in the manuals). so i'm assuming that i'll trade governors with the orginial wc engine which has throttle rod to governor input?

Sure would appreciate any help, Thanks

George bought his Major from a an implement sale about 18 years ago for 200.00. There is no known history regarding its origins or what service it had done, but the following work was undertaken by Harold alone to bring it up to show standard. From the engine number, it was found that the major was produced late 19 ... [Read Article]
