Just entered the world of Allis with what I believe is a 55 WD45.
However the serial number does not appear on the left upper differential brake housing as discribed. What I think is the serial number is on the shifter tower casting.
Is this correct.

That is a raised casting number on the shift tower. The serial number is a stamped number and it is on the differential. Unless you have a differential that was replaced. Parts department differentials did not have serial numbers. Some are very hard to locate and read because of layers of paint. Old has told you how to tell the difference between a WD and WD45: engine plate/no plate, transmission shifter... I do believe that the AC B and C tractors had the serial number up on the transmission someplace. They are much smaller tractors than the WD and WD45

John, yep on the B/C the serial number is just in front of the shifter. I think on the CA its also there but I'm not 100% sure on that.

A few ways to tell what you have or what some one has put togeather are by looking at the engine and shifter. If it is a true WD45 engine on the right side of the engine it will NOT have a bolt on plate. If it has a plate that bolts on then the engine is a WD/WC engine block. Also the shifter on a WD45 has a little curve to it is it doesn't then again its a WD tranny/rear end. Over the years its common to find a tractor that is made for parts of a WC, WD and WD45 to make one tractor.

The following link shows the two classical locations for WD & WD45 Serial Number Locations. However, on my WD the very best location is the number stamped into the top edge of the hydraulic pump where it bolts up to the torque tube.

The number on the shift tower casting might only be a casting number.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
