The six volt starter will work just fine. You do need to be a bit careful, though. Continuous cranking will overheat the starter. I believe the recommendation is something like 20 seconds of cranking, followed by a one minute rest. If your engine is properly tuned, long cranking times shouldn't be a problem.

It is possible that someone overheated that starter. It is also possible that the starter may need to be rebuilt because it is worn.

Ya hit that one right on the head Doug! Don, the starter may have worn bushings in it and she's dragging a bit from spinning faster. Are you hearing any noise while she spins?. Steve B.

Most of the time a 12 volt system can handle the same starter. It adds electricity which makes more heat. Check if the starter is HOT if it is you have a short in it and it will need a rebuild job. Bad cables sometimes short out.

It is spinning very slowly and somnetimes it won't spin at all and just acts like a dead short. I live in Oregon, where is a good place to get it rebuilt, or the parts and I can do it myself. Well maybe, I used to rebuild the old chevy starters. Unless there is a short in it.

Don,
I rebuild starters and alternators, but I'm sure there's got to be someone in your neck of the woods that does rebuilding. Check in your local auto parts stores in your town ask them who is a replicable rebuilder locally. They should be able to help ya. Make sure your battery is up to doing the job with a load on it. Also, make sure you have good clean connections on both ends of the battery cables. A lousy connection whether it be on the hot side or the ground side will make a starter spin slowly. Inspect the wiring for any breaks or worn through spots too. Hope this helps... Steve

I have seen several posts on allischalmers forum about starters (grounding etc.) you might be interested in.

Look in the yellow pages. There should be something under "Automotive". They would note that they do electrical service too. This might include starter and generator rebuilding.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
