I have a WD and the engine has a Power crater emblem. Is this a WD45 engine? If not what is a power crater engine, and how many more horse power. Thanks Bob.

If it has a plate on the right side of the engine, it's a WD block, if it's all cast, it's a 45 block. The power crater is just a design on the head of the piston that has a dent type look to it. This gives a bit more mixing of the air. If it's an entire 45, crank and all, then it's got about 10 to 15 more horse than a WD. Just the pistons, probably no more than 5 more over a standard WD.

In addition: The WD engine serial numbers are prefixed with "WD" & the WD-45 engines with "45". Many of the WD engine rebuild kits contain 1/8" oversize dished "Power-Crater" style pistons and matching sleeves which increases the horsepower slightly as Aaron says. However, too many wannabe WD-45 owners simply affixed the WD-45 decals to their WD tractors. Other than the curved shifter (which even some later WD's had) and the lack of a pushrod cover plate on the side of the WD-45 block, there is little difference in appearance between the WD & WD-45.

Today's Featured Article - Major Problems - by Anthony West. Following the aquisition of the two Fordsons to my collection I found that I was struggling to move them about. I had considered the possibility of driving the "F" to and from shows but anything other than local rallies was totaly impractical due to its sedate pace. I had also considered buying a landrover and trailer, but the price of a ... [Read Article]
