W6 Runs again! I think I'm converted!

Hey, I thought I should tell you followers of red power about my W6. I don't usually collect the later series Inters preferring the look of the earlier models and various other makes butI decided to get this W6 that was available cheap as a bit of a "work horse" or "shunt" tractor. It has been sitting outside for many years and when I first noticed it was pretty weathered and seized when I leaned on the handle. Any way when I chocked the clutch in I realised the engine was free and that something was adrift in the gearbox. It turned out that someone had reefed on the gearstick selecting two gears and bending the gate inside. Careful work with a big screwdriver fixed this. The engine had compression on three cylinders and had been liberally oiled by the previous owner since he had thought it was seized. I assumed that it had some carbon stuck on a valve as all seemed to be working when I removed the tappet cover. Anyway I soldered a new base in the small start tank which was rusted out and cleaned the fuel line and carby bowl. New oil and an old maggie I had lying in the cupboard completed her. Anyway, half a gallon of petrol later with a touch on the choke and away she went. At first she had a miss which later turned out to be no clearance on one valve. A little adjustment later she was purring like a kitten!!

I think I'm converted! Don't worry, she'll get a good life now!
Sorry about the essay!

You typed a great post. It helps me put into words the feeling I had after bringing my WD-9 home after getting it running for the first time. The W's are not only good tractors, they look the part as well.

I've got one and she's a real worker. Best thing about it is that it starts on 1 or 2 cranks and doesn't need a battery. What year and s/n is yours?

I haven't checked the S/N and date yet. I originally thought it was an AW6 the Aussie version as the panelwork had the faded transfers on it but the plate only has W6 on it and the chassis is different. I'll let you know.

I wasn't aware that some W6s came with a mag.

Gents, I'm a newcomer to a Super AW6 Standard, and need some advice on it: it is serial no. AW6 AW6 5750 1595. Can anyone tell me what that means, incl. yr of manufacture, and how it might differ from other years, please? It is a 4 cyl. petrol kero model.

Also, I'm considering investing in a manual for one, and have searched the ytmag site for them, coming up with the below:

W-6 G,K,Dsl Service Manual 171 Pages (Part No: IH-S-M) $36.95 W-6, WD-6, O-6 SER G,K,Dsl Parts Manual 476 Pages (Part No: IH-P-W6) $65.95

W-6 Parts Accessories, Includes Piston Kits, Brgs, Lites, Etc. (IH-P-ACCESSORY) 185 Pages (Part No: Parts Manual (T) $33.95

W-6 G & Kero Operators Manual 92 Pages (Part No: IH-O-W6) $29.95

Has anyone seen any of these, and are they of real value? I need specs. history and direction on servicing components for one to be worthwhile. COuld you give me your opinions please?

Thanks,
dave from Bathurst in Australia

I'm not really sure if it came from the factory with a mag but when I got it 3 years ago it had a Fairbanks-Morse mag on it. I just rebuilt the mag this year for about $150. Well worth it because to convert to battery ignition would have cost $400 plus. My generator works and I have a 6V battery but I don't use it for anything, someday I'll get 6v lights for it.
