Starter noise

The starter bushings may be dry and the weights are probably "suitecase" style - designed to hang on a special rear support bar.

I just bought a Simplicity 17GTH-L that seems to need a little help here and there. Whenever I turn the key and the tractor tries to start, I hear a loud screetch just before it starts. Is my starter shot? I was also given some weights with this tractor, they're not round like most wheel weights I've seen, they're sort of an odd shape(hard to describe). I have no clue where they go, and the previous owner now has Alzeimer's and he's not much help.

The screech will be the starter bushing as Jeff mentioned. Spray some lube where the shaft exits the gear end of the starter. Bill
