I have had several of these in past years and admire the same features you do.
1. The Tecumseh dealer should have the changeover list (Sears to Tecumseh) to get you the right parts for the engine AND the peerless transaxle. Also the Peerless gearboxes, shaft and couplers on the mower deck. The Tecumseh model no. for the engine is H60 but you'll also need the type no.
2. Your local automotive electric service centers should be able to test and repair your starter/generator and voltage regulator.
3. The head may be warped by heat or by over- torquing. You may be able to true it by using a 'surface plate' and emery cloth. A thick piece of smooth glass might be used as a substitute for a 'surface plate'. A real irritant to me is that people are sometimes too lazy to take things off or, once they do, too lazy to put them back on. On most of the Customs, the pulley belt guards on the tractor and the mower are missing or at least bent way out of whack rather than taking them off and putting them back on. A critical example is the bracket that connects from the upper rear of the engine to the tractor frame under the gas tank. Yes, it's a little work to mount it properly but without it, the engine and tractor vibrate so badly that the ears end up breaking off the carburetor (and the driver, ha!). (Probably the reason for the bracket added to the air cleaner). With that upper engine bracket mounted properly, the tractor is surprisingly smooth. Email me if you have any problems.
