Bristol 32/M30 parts

Greetings to all, I'm new to the forum and most likely will ask remedial questions so, bear with me.
I'm in the process of restoring a Bristol 32 with a Universal M30 diesel engine. I was curious about finding parts for the B32 and M30. So far, I'm probably going to need to do the following to get her ready to splash.
Replace/repack stuffing box, reconnect all engine components/fuel tank/wiring. Can anyone recommend a water muffler, secondary fuel filter and siphon brake adequate for this engine? I've downloaded copies of the engine manual, but can't find any wiring diagrams. Any input is appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Bristol 32/M30 parts

There is a very active Bristol Group on Facebook:

I have a M30/5424 in my '83 Bristol 35.5 and it is basically a marineized Kubota tractor engine, so I have been able to buy parts from my local Kubota dealer. I believe the equivalent Kubota engine is the D-1101.

Thank you chicory83, I appreciate that info. I don't use FB, but can certainly give that site a look regardless. I also read that the Kubota D950 is all the same engine.
