So I started working on the new to me sears mower and realized the motor wouldn't spin completely. It would turn about half way then something would stop the motor from being able to continue to rotate. I went back to my friends house and swapped the sears for the roper he had out back in the weeds. The motor spins freely with good compression. I tried jumping the motor over and it turns over but very slowly. This is a straight jump from my truck so I'm thinking the starters weak? Is there a way I can repair the starter?
The model is t6328cr

First start off by cleaning the contacts on on the starter and battery, Then check the ground connections and clean them too.

 

Do you have a battery in the tractor at all?

If you have to open the starter, they are often just bad contacts inside with a good stiff cleaning doing a world of good.

Ok il pull starter off tomorrow and give it a good cleaning its been sitting outside uncovered for many years so I'm sure it's a little rusted and no there's no battery at all but I did try with one at my friends house and it would turn over slowly

It would be best if you show us some pics. Clean all connections for the starter cicuit and try it before pulling the starter(as Willie said). Its often just a poor connection. Good Luck, Rick

I'm betting in the Sears has a locked up starter keeping it from spinning over completely. If it was a rod or something, it would make a noise when trying to turn over by hand. Also, it can be very hard to spin by hand due to the compression release.

The sears motor was locked because I was turning over by hand and it would stop and feel like something was hitting inside. And ok I'm going to clean all the connections today see what happens. One pic of sears and 2 Of the roper

Got the roper started and driving!! Apparently it was corroded connections made a Gatorade gas tank and even got it to drive, all 3 gears plus reverse working! Now I just need a fuel line to run gas from the tank, connect the deck belts , oil change and air filter.

Usually a slow starter is just a bad connection. Congrats on getting it going.

So I'm now on to the deck belts, when I spin the middle blade should the other 2 also spin? I tried removing the top cover on the deck to get to the inner belt but once the nuts get to a certain point the whole bolt spins, I flipped the deck over and the bolts are a non head flat type bolt, no way of grabbing it, so how can I get hold of that bolt?
