lrry........yep, the "bell" is semi-springloaded. Me? I use a "nail" that fits the hole in the pin and just tap away. Simple, eh?
Warning: new Bendix requires a NEW nail hole drilled 1/2" closer to the armature ...or... more better the improved "clutch" style Bendix. Many grind a "slant" on the end of the roll-pin so it starts eazier in the armature hole. ........Dell

Dell, when I replaced my crapped out 6v starter a few years ago on my 1947 8n, the new 12v starter came with the new-type bendix, but it kicks out almost as easily as the old type it replaced. Tractor generally starts great but have been wondering if the new hole you mentioned would put more tension on the spring & keep it from kicking out so easily? If so, that will be my first job this Spring when we get back to the cottage & my tractor.

Piker........no, the hole is NOT yer problem, yer clutch style Bendix is semi-BAD. I'd "inspect" the wear pattern on the teeth. Iff'n they were just engaging, then most likely the clutch style Bendix was installed in the "wrong" hole. .......Dell
