I need to switch my transmission on my 37 WF. It looks like I need to either remove the engine or the rear end. The steering box is bolted to the top of a tubular housing that runs between the bell housing and rear end. I don't think a WC is the same as the WF, because the WF is shorter and the steering is different. What in your opinion would be the best way to change the tranny out? My transmission is cracked from freezing with a little water in it. There is no exposed drive shaft or u-joint that I can see.
I found a nice used tranny that has the same casting dates as mine. It is the last major thing left on my WF to get fixed.

I would pull the engine. Tractor stays on its wheels, no danger of tipping like if you pull the rear end.

From the AGCO parts book, the bellhousing and tranny are the same for a WC and WF. Best way is to pull the engine and loosen both frame rails. You might get by just removing one rail. The bellhousing has to come out too as the tranny bolts to it.

According to the AGCO parts book page, they share the same tranny, but the case is different on a styled vs unstyled WC and a WF serial number changes as well. Did the WF change styles at the same time? A 37 would be unstyled for either model.

I have done it both ways and agree, pull the engine not the rear end.

Thanks guys for the advice. I got to thinking about this and then a wild idea came to mind,, I should think about putting a bell housing with a hole for electric start on this WF? I know it would need a ring gear on the flywheel too, if it would even fit. I know it did not come with electric start, but it has so much compression I can hardly turn the crank Sad . It would not be very visible on a WF because of the side curtains under the gas tank, and I could possibly conceal the electrical stuff and a battery. Would it de-value it too much? It is the 60th WF made. We have had it since my Dad purchased it in 1966 from my uncle.

Its been done to a fair amount of WC's. I suppose to some it would devalue it, but if it's hard for you to run because starting it is work, then it's already devalued to you. Go for it. If you drill no extra holes, someone could easily swap back to the "original" and have a perfect machine.

Well I was able to find a bell housing, starter, and flywheel for $250. All from the same tractor. I'm looking forward to not cranking on that any more. It might not be original, but to some people it might be a plus.

Good find (and cheaper than I seem to find my used parts). That's going to make it a lot more enjoyable to use. You're just adding to it's history (IMO). I don't see a downside.
