Well guys a major update for this project finally the motor is rebuilt an back in the frame with new rings new ignition switch new ground from the frame to the block new fuel line an a inline filter. I did run into an issue though when i went to start it the starter only clicks it wont roll the motor over an if it does not a full revolution, ive tried the 3 known good starters i have checked all my connections with a volt meter. So far everyone i have talked to has said that my voltage regultor might be bad causing the issue only because when i try to crank it over the starter is only pulling around 6 volts , or am i missing something here??

The voltage regulator should only affect the voltage coming from the stator. How tight does the starter bendix gear teeth mesh with the teeth on the flywheel? On some of my Kohler motors I had to shim the starter because the teeth meshed too tightly.

Likely a bad wire in the harness which get brittle from heat and age.  I went round and round with my 120 - traced continuity, cleaned contacts, and everything else under the sun.  Wiring harness cured the problem.  

JD shows the early and later 300 wiring harnesses are still available.

Thanks Travis im going to disconnect the drive shaft tonight to see if itll start that way , only because it rolled fine by hand before so the only other thing i was told to check was to see if itll start without the driveshaft connected, if it does something in the driveshaft is binding up.
