Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
Cross referencing the engine number shows that this engine is the 72 horse power engine.

Thank you for confirming that my engine is the 72hp version. What puzzles me is that it has 9 volt glow plugs with resistor wiring.

Regards,

Terry.

This sounds like there might have been some alteration or modifications at one time to the engine.
