Just to let you know what happened: turned out it was a bad conncection on the battery-to-ground; when I tried to turn the motor over by using jumper cables directly to the starter, it would barely turn it over and only at an angle, but when I eventually tried jumping through the battery, I noticed a weak connection; fixing that, it fired up like never before and is working perfectly, with the starter fully attached as it is supposed to be.

Legarto, That's the reason, as soon as I get a Dexta in, I convert it to NEGATIVE ground. It either that or never let anyone other than me jump it.
I really don't care who is pure at heart, and think it should remain factory. Starter doesn't care, generator is a matter of polarization or switching wires. Rewiring every thing else doesn't take long. I ditch the 2.2 Kw OEM manual bendix starter, and put a key-start system in, that are 2.7Kw starters. Next I am going to try the new gear reduction starters 3.4Kw.
I am a real Dexta, especially the Super Dexta fan. (4 of them on the farm) In that HP range, it is a very reliable tractor if you are handy with a wrench when it comes in, and fix some of the original flaws.
