We got a new 6 V battery and hooked to the cables and got nothing from the starter we tried putting a jumper cable direct to the starter and all the starter done with spin did not engage. It seems to be a starter issue could it be The Bendix is stuck and needs Freed up

Time for a tuneup on starter. Struggled with 871 to start last Sun. Finally ran, moved to work garage, starter came off. Ugh. lots of dirt mixed with fine copper powder around brush end. Shaft/bushings bone dry---no lube of any sort, probably the source of the problem. So, no wonder it took lots of battery and turned slow to start. Commutator smoothed, new brushes, getting painted now and will be lubed when assembled. Should work good then. Let's be real here, these machines are 50 plus years old and starters seldom get care, just replaced. I started doing my own repair years ago because of too many failures of "rebuilts", usually showing lack of lube. For lube I use a mix of chassis grease and ATF, mixed to a slurry. Bendix can get stiff with old lube in the clutch unit. Any old engine I get doing starter clean and lube is near first repair it gets.

Whether for product liability or because the aftermarket parts and labor business is lucrative, this concept is disturbingly prevalent. Fortunately when you step into your shop and make that jump 50 years back in time to work with your old tractor, this concept goes out the window. Even so, when it comes to the charging system, people quickly revert to this idea and start replacing the major components one at a time until it works. The reason you don't find any decals in your replacement set wit ... [Read Article]
