FWIW, my TO20 was a very difficult starter with a not so good idle. Pretty much everything was borderline. The starter would spin slow, the battery would draw down, and finally the starter switch died. A carb clean resulted in... no change.
So... one new carburetor, one new starter switch, new battery leads, one new Pertronix coil and ignition (12v neg gnd) and the largest battery I could fit resulted in better starts but it would still crank slow and draw down the battery. I figured the starter windings had shorted from cranking too long, so I bit the cost of a new 6v starter.
You TOUCH the starter now and BAM it fires up. VERY little dwell time on the starter, I figure it hardly heats at all even with max CCA and 12v. Heat is what kills motors and resistance and voltage drop means the starter spins slower, but LONGER and HOTTER. I expect this starter will last a very long time, and the tractor starts like (in my mind) a machine should. I"m fussy that way.
Nice SS BTW! I have a blown 3.4L 1987 Toyota 4Runner with a solid axle on 35s. I get the motorhead thing.
