The brushs are the only thing that will give you trouble.We never found a brush that could be modified correctly,and we could get new ones made IF we bought either 500 or 1000 at a time.Again IF you have a good electric shop that will take the time and work with you.CASE for a number of years used that JD382 and used a DELCO starter,which is what I did on my 555D.The rebuilders book shows about 4-5 different ones,so there is where the time and patience comes in as only 1 will work easily.I can't give you the number because it is hidden in behind.It is one with the solenoid mounted(all are) on the starter.See if they will work with you,because the father-son shop(grew up with father)and I took maybe a week or better looking at all angles making sure it was going to work and a few tweakings.GOOOOOD LUCCCCCKKK.

On my 55 Diesel, I put brushes and brushes holder from a Delco Remy 37MT.

They need some adaptation. Basically, you need to made a new plate to hold the brush holder, or drill some others holes in the existing one to get all the brushes centered. On the autolite, the holes were the brush holder are riveted to the rear plate are not centered on the brush.

Those brushes are slightly shorter, but this doesn't matter. Then I have cut the hold brushes wires and connect them to the brush holders of the Delco.

Also, you will need to "worn" the new brushes a little bit because the rotor diameter is not the same.

Yes,I went to an extreme,because mine HAS to be able to start 24-365.We did a rebuild but it didn't look or act suitable for guaranteed starting in all weather temps.If it was something not being or not having to be started 100% time,then yes it can be done cheaper and maybe work fine.I just didn't want to(couldn't) take that chance,plus I can fix the Delco in hour or less.
