D17 Starter nose broke

Broke starter nose on my D17 gas series III. It was a clean break. Has anyone ever welded these? If not does anyone know where I can get a nose?
I checked the engine and it turns over ok. I had noticed that the tractor turned over slow of late so it may have been broken for awhile.

Any help is appreciated

When you DO find another nose, check ALL the flywheel ring gear teeth and the base timing AND the centrifugal advance.

It very likely broke for a REASON as will the replacement, if you don't find the cause and repair it.

It can be welded in an emergency but you have to be careful to get it welded back together straight. I welded the nose cone off a 2 cyl Deere starter just to get by until the replacement came. The 'just to get by' period lasted five years or so until I finally got ambitious and put the new one on. Used Nickle rod and peened between every pass. Jim

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926. His dad was a hard-working farmer and the children worked hard everyday to help ends meet. In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
