Ok try this and tell us what you find. Turn the ignition on and then jump the solenoid and does it do the same thing or does it start?? If it works that way your solenoid maybe going bad. If it does the same thing your timing maybe off and when the engine fires just a tad bit it kicks the starter bendex out

I did try doing both the keyed ignition and the direct jump to the starter post. Acts the same as just the keyed ignition - disengagement and no start.

Timing maybe off then or the points set wrong or maybe slipped. Points should be set at 0.025. From what you say sounds like it firs and when it does kicks the bendex out

850 has a positive drive, it wont kick out like an original 9n drive.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

As I stated above my 961 was doing it a lot before the rebuild. I would think that it would be hard on the starter turning all the time that the motor is running, if indeed they didn't kick out, LOL.

You are not paying attention.When the engine starts the drive spins out when centrifgal force makes the pin back out of the recess.LOL if you want because you dont know how the drive works.You can hear the pinion gear spin back the instant the engine starts.The 9N drives were borrowed from the 60 hp v8.They would kick out when 1 cylinder fired.In the V8 another cylinder fired sooner so the drive worked ok on the V8.Ford started using the positive drive in the 52 Ford 6 cylinder OHV engine.This engine was made as a 4 cylinder for the NAA tractor both engines use the same EAF prefix on the part numbers.I was working in a Ford garage when the new 57 Fords came out in Oct of 1956.You can buy a drive for your tractor from a Ford,Mercury or used the positive drive.

If that happens the lock pin is jammed or the lock spring is broken.If you look at the end of the helix you will see the recess the pin drops into.If you play with the starter drive it will lock in the engaged position.You wont be able to get it to retract.
