I finally had a chance to get to the farm and take some pictures. I will post each engine kit or set of pistons in a separate post to minimize confusion.

This is a set of 4 WD 6.6:1 ratio pistons.

Wonderful. So, the WD-45 LPG piston really is the same piston/piston bowl as a D-17 gas engine, whereas the WD-45 gas is the cereal bowl design.

I would say the 7.25 : 1 WD45 kit would be a later kit, since they are the D17 design.
The parts book shows the 5.0:1 WD piston the same part number as the 7.25:1 WD45, and I would assume, since it is a WD piston design, would be a flat top piston. 
 Great post.

Most problems can be solved with the proper application of high explosives.

Just to add a bit of light on the 7.25:1 lpg piston, when I rebuilt my 1953 WD45 Distillate it had the 5.0:1 compression ratio pistons, part number 223507. The pictures I took were not the best but my recollection is that they were dished; could be flat tops, but definitely not the recessed bowl like the lpg piston.

The parts books I have shows the 5.0:1 piston, 223507 the same as the 7.2:1 compression piston. I don't know if it is a typo, or if the 7.25:1 was a separate piston than the 223507. My suspicion is that it is not a typo, because the parts books shows the 223507 to also be a WD45 piston, but it does not show the lpg piston to also be a WD piston or even a 226 power unit piston.

Another interesting sidenote, when I bought my rebuild kit from ACGO to rebuild my WD45 Distillate, it came with the lpg pistons.

WC and WD kero /distallate engines have the cereal bowl pistons,i dont know what their part number is but i,d say if they went on a wd 45 crank you would get 7.25 compression. They sit down a fair way in the 201 cylinder.

As far as I know all WC and WD distillate pistons, when these tractors were new, had flat top pistons. They were just shorter than the higher compression gasoline pistons. Also at least the early WC pistons were cast iron and not aluminum.

One of my D-17's had the (7.25/1) 229717 pistons, the same as the photo above.
Reliant's  7.25/1 pistons are virtually identical.
