Did I ruin starter or cause other damage

I took my d15 series 11 out for it's 1st drive following my 1st tractor restoration. Drove 1/4 mile down the rode and it seemed to loose power and quit. Battery was dead. Thinking it had set for so long with this old battery I put a new one in. Started right up and drove home. Once home the starter sounded like a blender with a spoon in it and was hot. When I bought the tractor it started by the key switch only but the wiring was a mess. I rewired it according to the D15 wriring diagram, but bypassed the push button starter as I thought it was. I have since wired from the key to the push botton and it starts fine, doesn't make the noise and the starter doesn't smell or feel hot. Do you think things are ok. By the way, don't take your maiden voyge at dark.

I had a starter come on while using my tractor. It styed on for a long time because the solenoid was hit with a tree branch and shorted the posts together. It was real hot also I unhooked the batt. (mag ign) to finish my work. I thought the starter would be shot, but a year later and a lots of starts its still ok. I think you wil be ok. The ring gear may be have a little extra wear on it.

once a starter has cooled off, if it cranks and restarts the motor, then it is fine. you may have shaved a few years off its total life, but o.k. for now.
