I think the thick spacer is put on the wrong way
the recess of the thick spacer goes toward the spring
you should not need the washer
recess on spacer
goes on like this
when it is on the shaft it should look like this
recess the wrong way looks like this
that is the why there is a added washer so that the nut did not go into the recess on yours
It also allows the starter benix to go out farther, cause your problem
I did find a starter for the K181 8hp and while I check it over, the brushes need to be replaced
hope this helps

Took apart starter bendix cleaned and lubed with graphite grease, it worked once then bendix jammed again, removed cleaned again applied regular grease its intermediate now works only sometimes, the little jack crew sticks inside that gear appears that some of those threads are a little damaged. Any body have a spare gear and little jack crew?
The engine is again not shutting off, I wonder if I burnt up the ignition switch when I was testing those wires before and smoke checked one of them,

1.Removed Starter again, DEEP Cleaned it and brushed with tooth brush, I added an "O" ring to the back of the bendix gear cause thats where it keep sticking when the bendix goes all the way back, I applied alot of 3 and 1 oil this time, owners manual said Engine oil, put it back on and it works GREAT!! nice not to hear tha humming!!
2. Ignition wont shut off, If I hol my finger on the key and touch the ignition switxh nut pushing down on the key it shuts off, something to do witht he key ignition ground?? Puzzled on that one Advice?
3. Transmission started leaking again a little drippping after I mowed the hole yard, guys I have no choice but to tear it apart.
4. Anyone have a manual section that shows how to adjust mower deck? it appears to be cutting uneven on left side, do I just lower those small wheels/

lyall gave me the mower deck manual, now I can adjust it

Mowed the yard yesterday sometimes the mower deck quits spinning when I hit high grass, I guess the belt is slipping, I did level the mower deck and adjust the cut, per Lyalls instructions, the deck was way off.

have you cleaned the pto?
sometimes the pto lining gets glased over and under heavy loads it slips
you need to clean it - I use a rasp file to clean mine
you just need to remove the glase and rough the lining up
first I would tight up the spring for the belt that goes to the mower desk
if that does not help than clean the pto lining
you might have to replace the spring if the lining is good
if your garden tractor was used just for mower the spring might have stretched

The nob for the Spring appears really loose will tightened that up first, still have that NO SHUT off problem, the key actual shocked me this time?? But will shut off if you move the choke on on

after mowing for after a half hour is the amp gage still charging like just after you started
if so I think you have a short someplace in the wiring
you will have to check the wiring with a meter to help find the short or bare wire someplace
you can also check the switch with the meter to see if that is where it is shorting out
I wish you were closer I would help made a new wiring harness for you

Just got back from San Antonio for work again, went to fire up the deere to mow the yard, the starter made a bang, engine started but then I got all kinds of noise and sparks, I didn't know what was going on I thought the motor was coming apart!!! Took the starter off the starter Bendix gear did the opposite this time it did not disengage the starter gear teeth stayed extended and got worn down against the flywheel, its toast!! The fly wheel teeth got worn a little still look workable, I guess the flywheel teeth are stonger than the bendix gear,
Pissed me off, I have to get a new started now hopefully the flywheel is still good

I don't mean to interrupt you guys but i found something pertaining to the JD round fenders that has me perplexed, figure seeing as a 110 is being restored here somebody might know the answer to my questions.
