Nice progress Scott. Certainly no faffing around! You took your transfer pump apart I see but you left the shaft in the plate. I remember something that it was going to be more headache to pull that apart so I made a small puzzle piece gasket and put it together.
Dunno when I will get to meet up in person. I foresee a 14th wave here sometime. All is good here though. Keep up the inspiring work!

I do plan on pulling the gear and the outer housing but haven't got the gasket yet. I never thought of putting a gasket together and sliding it in place under the seal housing. A couple of things that concern me after watching the Squatch video is my gear isn't bottomed out on the housing and the housing has a spring thats supposed to keep pressure against the seal. Obviously the spring isn't pushing the housing or it would be against the gear. I have a d311 engine book and it says to push the gear down to the shoulder on the shaft, so maybe the seal housing is a press fit also. This wouldn't be the first later series part I've found on my tractor. I'll do some investigating and we'll see, the pump always put out good pressure.
No faffing around, full steam ahead

a point to remember sometimes with gear pumps the gasket is used as a shim aswell as the gasket. its also done on some older engines for setting bearing clearance too so yes you could make one but you need the right thickness of gasketing

Good point on the gasket thickness, I got a manufactured one.
Got the oil filter housing and other oil lines on. Went with the old school oil cooler delete.
Fuel tower and injection pump, governor and starter pinion installed. I had to make a little bracket to push the fuel galley plug in. That thing is a tight fit.

The fuel pump packing looked pretty crusty so I decided to do a full rebuild with new seals and gaskets.
Don't know if the injection pump tag originally had black letters but I think it looks good with the letters blacked out.
First new fuel filters in who knows how many yearsThe fuel pump packing looked pretty crusty so I decided to do a full rebuild with new seals and gaskets.

Looking good Scott! So you decided to go all the way with the transfer pump! Shaft cleaned up ok? I like what you did with the lettering on the tags. Looks good. Eating the elephant one bite at a time! I have thought about these guys doing major work or full on restos on D6 tractors and up. Makes my head spin just thinking of the money and time spent. Can't help but think it seems exponentially greater as you get past D4 size. Keep it up!

Hahaha, eating the elephant one bite at a time, never thought of it that way. The shaft looks good im going to have Bryon chuck it up in the lathe and do a very lite polish on it. Like other things that I hadn't planned on when you're so deep into it and its taken apart to get at something else you just have to go all the way. My pockets aren't deep enough for anything bigger than a d4 at best but the little d2 has had me scratching the bottom a few times
