How do you remove the starter from a 1951 B John Deere Tractor?

We have at least enforced the need to disconnect the battery cable before you start the process! As I noted before, I still have the scars to prove that it needs to be done!!

just a side note on safety: i know a man who got his ring caught between the ground and a hot cable at the battery. it got so hot so fast that when he jerked his hand back it pealed all the meat off his finger. when you walk in the shop have a place to hang your watch and ring. best to never even leave the house with them on.

Ive never seen a mechanic wear a ring or metal watch band.I took mine off years ago when I hooked mine on the corner of a car body panel.Fellow I knew hooked a loose ring on a storm door handle, tore his finger up.My son in law gained weight and the ring got painful, had to cut the ring to get it off.Rings are bad news for mechanics and electricians or any one who works in electronics service.I worked for a farmer who lost the first joint of his ring finger when the ring hooked on some thing when he was working on a hay baler.If you get a burn from a ring the ring will have to be cut.

The starter should be in a case under the middle of the tractor, right behind the flywheel. As I recall there is a plate that is about 6 by 10 inches that you have to remove, which will open to the box that the starter is located in.

The starter is bolted into place so that the drive gear meshes with the flywheel ring teeth when engaged by the pedestal rod that goes down from the left side of the platfoem through the flywheel cover and activates the Bendix switch.

I am not exactly sure all of the above is precise, but it is close!

CAUTION: BE SURE TO REMOVE THE BATTERY CONNECTIONS BEFORE YOU WORK ON THE STARTER. I didn't do that once and nearly welded my highschool class ring to the frame of the tractor..Not a fun experience!

Thanks for the help. That was what we thought but was unsure. We do not have the manual that come with the tractor. Thanks again.

Is the Oil filter also located in the middle of the tractor in front of the plate that you remove to get to the starter.

Today's Featured Article - Fordson Model N: Field Service Operations and Lubrication - by Anthony West. The daily or weekly servicing of any vehicle is of the utmost importance, and in days gone by when our favorite tractors were doing an important and Commercially vital job on the farm, these service operations would make a major difference to the running costs and economy of the farm. This being so, it surprises me to see how many enthusiasts attending rallies, shows etc, seem to be unaware of the importance of this constant attention. Possibly the modern machine with its 6,000 mile or even once ... [Read Article]
