the nose cone around the starter bindex has busted for the second time and all of the broken pieces fell down into the bell housing , does any one know why this keeps happing? this was a new starter and should be the right one for this engine. getting tired of pulling the engine to clean out the housing and checking ring gear! thanks charles

Charles in your post about the carb you mention a bad oil leak at the main seal. I suspect the mains or crank are badly worn letting the crank bounce up and down. Thus trying to go under the starter and breaking the nose off. With the engine out check the play on the crank by putting a pry bar under the flywheel (bottom) and prying up Shouldnt move more than .002/.005. Hope this helps. Ed

I had to rework the brushes on the starter on my JD440. My starter was a Delco the same starter as on my 1953 Chev PU.

Does your crawler have gas or diesel engine?

ed, i should read all of the replys before i answer, you have giving me a lot to think about and to check out, wish i could do the same for you, i will check at the parts store for a 1953 chey. truck, is this a 6or8 cyl. engine on your truck? also i have pulled the enginr, easyier than i was expecting, i will check the movement, when i bought the crawler the person told me he had rebuilt the engine, but i am giong to check it out good! this is a 2 cly. gas engine thank-you , also i am trying the rust removeal they are talking about on the paint board, using electlyise, will let you know how this works, charles

I had always suspected ether, for I repaired most busted starters in the winter. Otherwise check the aligment. Good luck.
