I have just got this MH 475 sunshine home.
1 quick wask later and I see that the positive lead for the battery has been removed completely.
Can anyone tell me where to reconnect the new lead as to me it's not obvious.
Also am I right assuming that its a Negative earth?,

Sorry mistyped I believe it is a 745.
The pink lead in the photo goes to the block then a heavy blue lead goes from the same point on the block to the starter motor.

I thought i responded to this last night? I click something wrong?
So's anyway, pommie diesels even in these years were still 6 volt yes? So most likely positive earth. If the clamps are still on the cables you have there... and it 'ran the last time we used it'.. the earth terminal should fit the positive post of a battery. It really doesn't matter unless everything else is in good order. If you are starting from scratch, might as well go 12, and wire it negative earth.

So its a 745s from about 1957.
The engine is siezed and so are 3 of the valves. I have put atf and acetone into the cylinders and got a decent shifter onto the crank nut.
No movement so far but time will tell.

You need to find a farm tractor that 'was not' in the submarine service. Tho Gregory Peck would be proud of you...
Try brake fluid too. Looks like another head needs to come off huh?

I had alook at taking off the sump, but I dont think that is an option without removing it from the frame. So I pulled out the oil filter access and had a look up inside cylinder 2, it seems very rusty. Tomorrow I will get the inspection camera up inside there and post some pics.

The worst corrosion seems to be on piston 2 and 3 number one seems good but so far I cant get a look at number 4.

Well it has soaked in a mix of ATF and Acetone for a while and no movement yet.
I would usually just removed the head, but I am having a problem finding the head gasket , lets say it still a work in progress.
So I hooked up a puller to the crank and tried to draw the crank backwards bringing piston 2 down as it seems the worst rusted.
However the puller gave way, it was only 3/4 mild steel threadall as I would prefer it fail than do other damage.

So the engine Crank is still set solid, and no head gasket in site, I decided to try a few old suggestions on breaking the rust connection.
First I used a wet vac to draw all the fluid out of cylinder 2 the boiled the kettle and filled the cylinder with boiling water. Let it sit for 5 mins and repeated.
Then I took some dry ice put it in a small cantainer and poured rubbing alcohol over it till i had asupper cold fluid, re vaced the cylinde empty anf tipped the -20 deg sludge into the cylinder through the injector port.

This is your engine? It looks like a snapshot of Apollo/ Soyutes docking back in the 60's...
