Mother in law called the other day. Said the old Allis wouldnt start. Doesnt even make a noise she said. I went down this morning with my soveriegn to Mow the homestead. Checked out the allis. Hit the switch and click with a little knock. Battery had plenty of juice. I took the starter off to see if would turn. It was locked up. I took the screws out and pulled it apart. The magnet inside was in pieces. I have another I'll install next week. Not bad for an old 30+ year old tractor to only have this one part go bad, besides belts. ddh

Even that should not have broken this soon. Seems to me as it is most likely due to abuse. All the stories I have heard buying stuff that was only run by "little old ladies" usually broke down from severe use soon after I got them home.lol
