This winter my 2072 Super, (my wood tractor) decided to throw a fit and start to run bad. It was way to cold to work on it so it has sat the last 2 months till yesterday. My Dad and I pulled the engine and I seen there was parts of magnets all over the engine, so I pulled the flywheel off and low and behold the flywheel decided it didn't want to play anymore, LOL. So the flywheel, stater, and I think the rectifier all need to be replaced, so parts are on order. I will get some pictures later today to show the destruction!

Glad to hear it didn't wreck the block or anything else. I hope you can find the parts quickly to repair the engine.

Brian, lucky I didn't run it much after it starting making noises, and I looked the block over real well and it isn't hurt.

Oh and this tractor has a command in it not the old mag engine!
