Right or wrong, my 6 volt 1950 "H" used to get stuck when I tried to start it, I got tired of loosening up the starter and reattaching it. I put 12 volt alternator and battery on it. Spins so fast now it never has got stuck since. I have heard that is not the thing to do, but worked for me. So far.

Wouldn't I be able to turn the crank by hand if the starter were jambed? Can the starter actually stop the crank from turning? I have 12 volt on the tractor.

If the starter can turn the crankshaft it sure can stop it from turning when locked in the teeth of the ring gear.

Yes they get stuck real ad sometimes and the best is just loosen up the starter from the engine. Take a good look at the bendix and the teeth on the ring gear when you have the starter out. If the flyheel ring gear is bad you mite need to replace it. Usually a new bendix will help a bunch. But in time the ring gear will need replaced if that area is real bad. But you realy wont know till the starter is removed when its locked up. Engines will usually stop at the same position.

I have the same problem with mine sometimes - yes the starter will "freeze" the engine, even with 12 volts. You won't be able to move it with the crank either.

Easy way to see is to just loosen up the two starter bolts, enough, loosen up the starter, and see if it makes everything loose.
