Take the starter off and take it in to an automotive electric shop. They can put a new Bendix on it and that should solve your problem. If it doesn't, that would mean you have major problems! About the only thing I can think of that would let it spin if the Bendix is not the problem would be that there are teeth missing on your flywheel. You could prove that is or is not the problem by pushing or pulling the tractor enough to turn the engine over and then trying the starter again.

sounds like the drive/bendex is bad probably will need to replace it

You might want to pull your starter and be sure the bendix is not so dry that it won't let the starter gear spin out to contact your ring gear. It has to spin out against spring pressure-which disengages it from the flywheel when you release your starter pull rod. If it is free then you will probably need a rebuild of the bendix. If not free lube it and work it manually on the spiral gears 'till it is free.

i know it isnt the bendex because when i have it out it goes to the top of the starter and there is no teeth missing off the flywheel i cranked it over by hand and it does the same thing.

Is there any way to adjust where the starter is positioned?

Thanks Marcus

I had the same problem with my WD when I bought it. I measured the distance from the starter housing to the end of the drive gear when it was spun out and it was shorter than the distance from the mounting hole to the ring gear so it couldn't engage the flywheel. Gear looked the same otherwise. Got a good used WD starter and measured it and it fully engages the ring gear. End of problem. Sounds like you may have the wrong starter.
