WD45 air cleaner and carb

If I put a WD45 crank in my WD with the power crater pistons, etc., do I necessarily need the 45 carb and intake? I would like the increased power but want to appear WD stock on the outside. Is this possible or even worth the trouble? Trying to figure out how I'm going to go with this rebuild when I actually get to it.

Mine is also a 12v system. Got a generator off of D17, I think (dad got it for me). Looks 100% like the 6v one. I've read you can also run an 8v battery on a 6v system for better starting. I think a good 6v with a mag and BIG battery cables would do ok. Problem comes with small cables and a dist.

Thanks Aaron. I guess it really doesn't matter since I plan on leaving the 12V system on. The tractor will be used regularly so I don't want to mess with 6V. So it wouldn't be all original anyways. Our blackland is hard to pull an offset through so I think the extra power would help. We'll see...

What are your plans for the tractor? I doubt that you, or most others who make a WD into a WD45 would ever notice the HP difference in the first place. Parade machine or snow pusher won't make any difference. If you really want to work it plowing or something, then I would think you'll need the extra volume of the carb and intake to make the HP. You'd have 12% more cubes that will need to breath. My WD is now 100% WD45 from crank to intake. Ran it a long time on a WD intake, didn't know it had a 45 carb. My WC loader has a WD45 carb. Found out when I put a WD intake on it and it didn't fit. Short version of all this is, only the correct police will know the difference.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
