Thought I would start this off here now to give me time to gather up the parts that I know are missing or stuffed for the SE Imperial Super-Diesel rebuild.

1 - Complete oil primer system. It is a small cylinder that sits on the RH side of the engine when looking at the head.
2 - Fuel tank to suit this engine.
3 -Gib keys x 2 off measuring 1/2" wide x 3/8" thick x 3 1/2" long
4 - Head gasket. Parts list 1 gasket and 4 "O" rings but later mentions 2 gaskets.

A detailed picture of how the governor is suppose to be set up. Mine arrived in pieces and sith no idea of how it should go back together. I have the 2 weights and 1 pivot pin but I can make another one of those but it appears that the weights stay put but simply spin in that position and the shaft that goes across to the governor has a spring that is adjusted by turning the wheel on the outside of the engine and I am guessing more or less tension is all that is required to adjust the running speed.

This is a start, so any info or leads will be gratefully appreciated.
