Welcome to the forums. You have a great tractor there. I have two 706D which is similar but different. I'm in Atlanta and have time on my hands. If I make a drive west I will let you know. As for salvage yard there is a place in Pavo Ga called T&H Salvage. Great group of folks there. Be very specific for what parts you need and it's best to make the drive if you need to. They have front weights and brackets for the 06 series. Last group I got was $100 per suitcase weight. As for the pump, they will have a bunch of them and usually useable. Might not need to rebuild yours, just use the one you buy. Last time I was there they had at least a dozen of each 06 series tractor in their yards. Just have to put the time in finding what you need. Prices are really good too. Be careful starting on ether, I've seen a lot of cracked pistons from its use. You have an air leak that is causing you to lose fuel pressure while not running. I would look into that issue before spraying more ether. Best thing you can do is pull start it with another tractor or truck if you can't get it to start on its own. Just my thoughts.
