I just finished a very minor restoration on a longnose, but I need to tear it down again to shim the bearing stack better as it starts slow and makes a little noise.
You are missing the cover plate for the switch it seems. It would still work if nothing else is broken. 

Also, what is your tooling like? I would grind the peen from the rod and tap it out, replace the insulator and repeen the edges with a hammer once you are complete. 

Let me know if you want any pictures

Edit: check with a woodworking store or lumber mill for correct wood type (basswood originally) I think most guys are replacing with a "nicer" wood if they require replacement.
