G'day Jake. Yes it has a 4 speed transmission. The tractor was lacking rear rims and a drawbar along with other small misc. I'm hoping to locate a factory swinging drawbar some day.

Are the WK-40's fairly common in Australia? I find the older Chamberlain's very interesting especially the models with Detroit power.

yes there are a few Wk-40's here, I have #6318 a 3 speed, I do see more WD-40's tho. Never seen a gasoline model till I went to the USA.
Most 40's here are 3 speeds, not sure why. Just got a Delco 6V starter for mine.

Jake.

Lee and I have been doing a little research into the water pump pulley issue. Because it is a direct descendent of the W-40 we decided to get a water pump off a W-9 instead and compare the pulleys. Lee located one at Pete's Tractor Salvage in Anamoose ND and brought it over.

Check out the pictures. It looks like the W-9 pulley will fit right on the W-40 pump. Will know for sure when we try and make the switch.

I own the following WK-40 McCormicks..

WKC-4460
WKC-4462

I wonder if #4461 is still around..The one WK has 16.9x34's on it..It also has a gas manifold and a TA-40 crawler hood..

The Wards 32" rear tire on the other one blew out not long after getting it..




Back 35 years ago there were a bunch of WK-40's in my part of the country..I once owned (3) WK-40's,(2) WD-40,s,(1) WA-40,and (1) W-40 4 speed..

The W-9 double pulley water pump fan hub and pulley flange will fit right on a W-40 water pump housing. Except for the housings and impellers all other parts interchange. There is no part number or description for the double pulley fan hub in the W-40 (TC-19) parts book. It was only available as a complete water pump unit for the electric start option.

Here is how the part numbers shake out:
2369 D......W-40 pulley hub
2370 D......W-40 pulley flange
2370 DA....W-9 pulley flange
???????.....W-9 pulley hub. I found it very strange that there was no part number on this hub. Maybe someone out there with a W-9 parts book will chime in to supply one.

The only other part my parts book (TC-32, W9/WD9) lists is #8023x, fan & generator pulley hub with oil seal.

Note that 2369D is also in parts books TC-33 (O6, W6, OD-6, WD-6) and TC-25 (T14 and TD-14). If it fits, it fits, is probably the best answer.
