A C C Bad starter

Can the starter be rebuilt in the barn or do I have to buy a new one. Where do I go to have it fixed. It sounds like its not going all the way out and grinding against the gear. It happens about every tenth time I start it. Also what options do I have when in comes to belly mowers?

Bill, before you replace the starter, check to see if the starter pinion gear stop did not screw itself inward, and not let the gear out far enough to mesh with the ring gear. I'm not sure, but your's MIGHT be similar to mine. I had this happen on my WD45 and thought it might be the ring gear or pinion until I seen this. On my starter, the pinion gear slams against a threaded bushing that likes to "work" itself inward for some reason. I have to take it off and restake it once in a while to keep it from turning in. Works every time. Hope yours is this simple. Leon in Mn.

You should pull the starter out and check the ring gear. Very seldom will you be able to change starter drives without changing ring gears without having the problem reaccure. Sometimes, if the ring gear is not wore to bad, you can take the gear off and turn it 1/4 turn and it will last for quite awhile. A new ring gear is about 36.00 and a starter drive is about 40.00. Changeing the started drive is no big deal but you have to split the tractor to change the ring gear.

Any good automotive electrical shop can rebuild it for you. I've got a starter I plan to have rebuilt this month. It behaves exactly like yours does. My thinking is that it isn't turning fast enough to make the pinion gear mesh fully with the ring gear, due to worn brushes, dirty contacts, etc.

Today's Featured Article - Sunday Drives - by Cowboy. Summer was finally upon us here in Northern Maine.

I have been restoring old Farm Tractors for the past 6 years, and have found it easier and less expensive to hit all the auctions and purchase whole tractors for parts needed.
