My 1962 MF 65 diesel will not keep a charge. It has a good battery, new cables, new alternator and starter with replacement wires, and new starter switch from TSC. We found a battery drain a few weeks ago, fixed that and it started right up. Used it for an hour on Saturday, started up fine, yesterday went to start it and was dead again. I cleaned all connections, put in on the charger for 12 hours, still dead today. Has been doing this on and off for 4 months. Don't know what to check next after putting so much into new parts. Any help appreciated.

What for an alternator? Unhook it and see if the drain goes away.
