Lost the gear on the starter drive on my 8N, ( had been in there around 5 years) bought another, lost the gear after about 10 starts.

Removed the spark plugs from engine,(so I wasn't fighting compression) tranny in neutral, pto lever engaged, had my son turn the pto shaft with a pipe wrench while I looked at the ring gear through the starter hole...had 2 places where it was missing teeth.

When mine failed on my 640 I had to split the tractor to get one of the broken teeth that had wedged itself between the ring gear and bell housing. Spent 3 times as long trying to rock it out than what it took to split it and let the piece drop out.

I couldn't wait for the warranty replacement to arrive (regular mail from Florida to California) so I found one in-state from a non-internet tractor place, and they shipped it to me in a day.
It's a CNH 87421556 (Prestolite?). Interesting, it's not made in India, like the two failed ones, but in the US (according to the box). Don't know if it'll hold up any better, but at least it's installed and functioning for the time being.

I checked the ring gear, no missing teeth (whew.)
