Thanks so much! I think I have located the parts at F P Smith in California. Used housing and new starter. Again I thank you for all your efforts on this!
My father in law lives in Boston, NY and has several farm tractors he has restored. The last time we visited in the summer six of us went on a picnic and we all drove different tractors to his picnic spot!

Thank you again for all the info!!!!!

No problem, figured someone would have what you needed, nice to have but with good spark, clean fuel, (fuel tanks of this age often times have coffee grind size rust bits that clog filters/sediment bowls) they should easily start with the hand crank. One other tip is keeping the starting engine oil clean, check for gas contamination, gas thinned oil. You can put a petcock on the carb bowl, and short section of hose to drain the bowl after the diesel fires to be sure nothing can thin the crankcase oil in the starting engine. I inadvertently left the fuel on one time and it overflowed the crankcase. Now obviously, by design, that zenith carb should not do that, but with the age and I am not too sure how it will allow gas to leak down, I always warn people about it. At minimum close the fuel off, let it run dry/shut off, takes a little while, given the amount of fuel just in the bowl, or small amounts over time, gas thinned oil will cause a failure, so I just drained mine off immediately after shutting the fuel off. Also be aware the diesel needs to spin to circulate coolant to the starting engine, and keep an eye on over speeding the starting engine when the diesel fires, you can hold your hand on the governor or throttle linkage, choke it off, if for some reason the pinion latches don't disengage at the right time, they can be easily adjusted with a turn of a screw, refer to the serviceman's reference book for that one. A few tips to keep that "pony" running without problems, keep the magneto in good working order, they will fire in the coldest of weather.
