Best place for this information is Go to the JD discussion forum.

I have a 1945 JD L myself, great little tractors, good luck. Greg

I believe I got most of my parts from Deere except for the main bearings which I had a hard time finding. The only set I could locate at the time were .125 under size and I had to have the crank machined. The roller bearing I replaced were purchased from the local auto parts store.
