    The fins on WLD & WR are as large as the head & the fins don't taper in like WL do.The '41 & later WLD have larger intake ports & the WR have even larger.these do not look like WR to me

    Also base thickness is thicker on WLD & even thicker on WR

    You'd be heart broken to pay all that money and find outs its got the wrong barrels.

    WLDR & WLD barrels wouldn't work on WR cams either so there's more problems that just the price

    NOS WLD cylinders have full width fins and fins are as large as the perimeter of the head


    '48 up WR cylinders are relieved at both front and rear for the mag clearance.


    '48 up WR cylinders have pronounced taper and relief in order to run the Wico vertical mag which was new for '48.


    WLD cylinders have no relief at the port are for the mag.

    Front port area of a '48 up WR cylinder.

    Actually WLDR "Special" for 1940 and '41 had angled valves with roller tappets but shoe tappets and blocks work fine with them. Standard WLD and WLDR are as you say due to the straight valves.
