Already took the starter back and got my old one to follow up on 1-2 other maybes. Had to drive through town to get home.

Before buying the IH in the first place I held them side by side...would've worked if not for that extra large lip on the nose near the mount plate that wasn't noticed until I tried to install it. Otherwise the only complication was the solenoid on the IH is offset more so it would end up getting closer to the left steering rod and require the careful moving of the left steering ram hydraulics.

Will be trying shortly (as of this post) to swap the nosecone swap with the starter I pulled off my Scout. Had hoped its being only 1 year older than the tractor that it'd be good to go...but nope. Would rather risk messing IT up anyway than a new one. Hopefully the only other changes needed is a connection between the solenoid and the tab going into the starter body...since those will NOT be aligned. Hopefully this band-aid will at work well enough to get the tractor home...after that I can take any amount of time necessary to get it right.

Wish me luck...should know within a half hour if all is a GO or not.

There IS one promising lead however; the only old-fashioned specialty shop in the area that deals with starters//alternators, found a starter out of San Diego...and the images at least match the Massey. Offset and all. So I ordered it...won't cost much more than the IH did.

EDIT: Ok closer to an hour before getting back to here...some other things get in the way. But...THE HYBRID WORKS! A correction about earlier...its just the solenoid itself is offset...not the mount holes. Anyway going to see if can get the tractor going again now.
