George those cows are tuned in to any motor they hear running. If it's not a car they just assume whatever is running is coming to feed them! Actually quite often I rake up some of the clipings and toss them over the fence for the cows so the lawn mower is a double whammy on them!

I figured out the starter has the wrong gear on it. Trying to find the correct one now. Or a way to rebuild the original.

Often, the bendix alignment is the major issue. If you're able to loosen both mount bolts and twiddle with it some, you can get them to behave. I had to put thin spacers under one of them to get the desired effect.

I see you said it's the wrong gear, is the tooth count off?

Also, if you're looking to rebuild the original... is the bendix assembly the same on them & is the original gear OK? if so, just swap parts around until you get what you need.

Yes the tooth count is off. The original has 10 teeth while the replacement has 11. I've been emailing a local guy this evening. I'm going to see him tomorrow afternoon and see if he has something that will work or if he can rebuilt the original. The starters I have do not have interchangable parts....at least not the ones that need changing! LOL
