Info and parts on the WD6


Recommended Posts

HI. I am talking to a guy on Facebook who has a wd6. He wants to trade for my Farmall BN. He bought it and it was left outside when he got it without a muffler on it, the engine is sized. I am aware of the rarity and how hard fuel system parts are to come by as well as the cyl heads cracking. Is there anyone out there who is the GURU on these? where to get parts, rebuild kits, pistons, sleeves, correct wiring harness, etc? Shops that DEAL with the injectors and pumps...??? What is the unicorn to find, impossible, unobtainable parts? etc??? It was converted to 12v but i would like it back to 6v. So i can swap batteries with my other farmalls. I can add photo's if needed. with permission. 

What all do i need to know about these, what should i be careful with, If i can get it unstuck and running it will be used full time on our family blueberry orchard farm. almost 60 acres. A good workout for an old tractor. it would go along well with my Farmall cub which i use to maintain our blueberry isles.

In my opinion. You could rebuild the BN 10 times for what it is likely to cost just to make the WD6 run.

Dang. The only issue with the BN is that i rarely ever get to shows and it has no use on the farm, besides towing/pulling. I'd been trying to find a buzz rig for mine but no luck everyone i come across is too far gone or 3pt mounted. Pretty much all the sheet metal on the bn is shot.

If you are going to use it full time, I would find a gas engine to throw in it and keep the diesel in case someday you want restore back to originality.

not at all COST /parts  effective

2x...... Bubble POp ....... tell him to ad $15K and its still a bad deal for you.

Sure its cheaper than $35K for china %^$%^& ,   AND it could run out of the gate, or $3K  later....go right on thru $20K

A  $1.5 k  ,M or $7K 90s small 4wd will do more every day work.

as a novelty/toy and < $500 in, the over $ B go for it. Park in back of the shed until $$$$.

And then tomorrow buy something to use

It won't be a high priority item until next winter probably. i have to finish up 2 on-going restorations right now. Believe it or not but the B/BN tractors in my area are almost non-existent and i can barely find parts anyhow. I may just roll the dice on it.

Not this year. Bc i have 2 on-going long time NOS restorations, but more than likely probably next season i may.

Hi, All. just wanted to mention i passed on the trade deal after hearing the extreme scarcity of diesel specific parts and how some guys have well over 15k into the engs alone. Just way too much for me currently being mostly fixed income. thanks all for the helpful replies among my urge thinking i absolutely needed it too then seeing "it's too much work" lol.
