Harley-Davidson already had overhead valve engines in production for its Big Twin lines, but the "small twin" flathead design was popular in applications needing reliability more than power. This engine remained in production from XXXX to XXXX in the Servi-Car, although it was superseded in two-wheeled motorcycles by the more advanced flathead engine used in the Model K (the ancestor of the OHV Sportster) in XXXX.Though the model designation suggested high compression, for reliability, the Army version actually used medium-compression version. In modern terms, the WLA's compression ratio of X:X is very low. Due to this low compression, WLA will run on XX octane gasoline, necessary due to the poor quality of refining at the time, although fuel technology would improve rapidly during the war.The WLA also features springer front suspension. Harley-Davidson would not adopt telescopic front forks until after the war. The rear wheel had no suspension, giving this type of motorcycle the nickname "hard tail".The model number breaks down as follows:W : the family of motorcycles. Harley-Davidson (except in very early models) gives letter designation for each model family. The series at the time was the newest incarnation of the XX-cubic-inch (XXX cmX) flathead motor, and was developed from the earlier family XXXX??“XXXX.L : "high compression", in the usual HD scheme. The "low compression" model was only briefly available.A : Army. The company would also produce model to the slightly different specifications of the Canadian Army, which would be named the WLC. The WLCs differed from WLAs chiefly in the use of some heavier components, usually Big Twin parts, as well as Canadian blackout lighting.
