Update:  Engine is still in the shop.  The reports that I am hearing are that the repair parts are not available.  I am finding this difficult to believe.  But the fact is that the engine is still apart.

Took a different route to obtain parts.  Parts are now on order.  Lord willing, she will be ready to blow snow this winter.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

Parts arrived, machine shop said we needed new valves, so had an additional wait for  the valves.  Keeping our fingers crossed that we have everything that we need to wrap this one up.

Good news!  I got my wish and the tractor has come home in time for Christmas.  It is comforting once again to hear that gentle diesel purr.  Well, maybe it isn't quite gentle.  But it is good to hear none the less.  :-)

I am happy to report that the diesel is working better than ever.  Starts easily and is great to have it back in service to clear the driveway.  I am thinking I should have done this 5 years ago.
