About the only difference is that the WD45 grille will not have a hole in the upper right side for the crank that adjusts the radiator louvers that were available on the WC and WD.

The sheetmetal is all the same with the exception of the WD45 diesel, which had a longer hood. The outer dimensions of the 201 engine in the WD and the 226 engine in the WD45 are the same.

Oh, and as for the reasons why so many are dented. Old tractors + careless operators = loads o' dents.

They will all interchange, maybe some small cosmetic diffs, but I don't know for sure.

These were actual pieces of industrial equipment, not little kubotas for 2 acre wannabe's. They got the snot beat out of them all day, every day, by guys whose tool boxes contained only crescent wrenches and ball-pien hammers. Pretty impressive that most of them are still running around 51-74 years later.

You'd better do a little measuring-I think the 45 had longer stroke engine, taller radiator & taller grill than the old WD. There were a few tractors so good that they were used and used and abused and beat to death. WD-45's were in that list.

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
