I feel kinda weird asking this but... here goes. My starter went out on my 12. I've priced starters and got prices anywhere from $50 up to $230. I know rebuilding it would be about the same margin. What would you, The Massey Ferguson Nation, do? Replace or Rebuild?
The fifty dollar starter didn't get the greatest reviews, I have already put one on there before months ago thinking the original one was bad. Grasping at straws, I put one on. I figured Fifty bucks couldn't hurt.(you get what you pay for.) After a few uses it failed. It had a warranty, 1 year, It was voided due to stray welding spatter on the case. Their word against mine. I lost. I put the original starter back on it worked fine for a few months.
And just as the foot of snow fell and I bladed up my rig, the starter failed. It spun very slow and the Bendix failed to shoot out and spin the flywheel. So shovel in hand in hand i tackled the driveway. I enjoy the outdoors, but the world looks better from the seat of a Massey.
Am I looking at this wrong? Could the starter be bad or am I missing something?
