8N Starter stuck (jammed) I removed starter and found 2 (side by side)teeth on the ring gear part broken off. Should I file these teeth down to keep it from jamming or do I have to bite the bullet and replace the ring gear at this time?

I am replacing the starter and Bendix also. What lube should I use on the Bendix.

Any tips on re-installing the starter would be appreciated.

You could try to live with it. Depends on your frustration level. If you can put up with an occasional starter whirr and don't mind rocking the tractor in gear to move the flywheel, go for it. If you go into it, you could check the clutch, pressure plate and release bearing and springs at the same time.

To make starter installation easier, remove the oil filter canister and grind out the starter hole between 1-2 o'clock position. Don't unwind the bendix. Don't lube the bendix. It will gunk up.

Thanks for the help, I took your suggestions and the starter slid into place without a skinned knuckle. I left the two damaged teeth the way they were. I think the old starter bushings were worn so much that the bendix was climbing the teeth on the ring gear.

Again thanks for your help.
