My tractor was converted to 12volts
I took the old one to get it fixed needs new amature as well as other parts the repair man told me I'd be better off getting a new one I found one on Amazon and on eBay for around 132.00 I'm on a limited budget disability so I was wondering how do I know if the starter is the right one or not?

Try contacting your local automotive parts store and see if they have a rebuilt service, whether onsite or the ship out. Make sure they rebuild and not just swap out for a new one.

My personal opinion is better to have a USA made repair than to take a chance on the land of almost right.

The wife's TO-20 is a 6V model converted to 12V. I just never changed the starter. DC motors can run on a higher voltage, they just spin twice as fast. The secret to a long life is not cranking more than 30 seconds without a 2 minute rest and keeping the engine tuned up for the easier start. 80 hours since I swapped over and the 6V starter is still alive and working well. If you can find a less expensive used one, that might save you a buck or two.

The first step is to positively identify the tractor.

If the ID tag is still on the dash, look at the model and serial numbers.

If it's missing, you'll have to do some investigation.

The one you show from ebay fits the same applications as the one I referenced from this site I think it should work on TO30 because during model year 1955 when MF went to 12 volt on TO35 the Delco starter used the same drive as 6 volt. The 6 volt interchanged between TO20 TO30 and TO35 6 volt.. I can't say for certain the 12 volt starter you show will work but I think it will.

I got the starter everything seems the same except the old one I can get in and out without taking out the distributor. with the new one I have to take the distributor out..Idk why because it's exactly the same. Maybe it's because the old one is worn..
