B-10 starter problems?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I have a starter/generator on my 243431, and it seems to be bad, the engine when attempted to start spins really slow, it spins until it hits the magnetic spot on the flywheel, and stops, then it goes again after about a one second wait. We even hooked my brother's car battery up to it and still did not spin any better. So we are thinking the starter has some problems in it, any of you know what could be wrong with it? Does anyone know if I can get these fixed as opposed to getting a new one?

is the batt charged? try to jump the starter with a set of jumper cables. check your terminals, batt, starter switch, solenoid (if equipped) make sure where your generator mounts to the block is clean (ground). battery ground too, battery ground too may be on top of motor there is a company near me that can rebuild it

Well, I brought it to get tested today and it was in fact bad, he said it was "overcharging", it was getting hot and had broken some of the wires. He also said it would be $110+ to get it fixed, maybe up to $150. So as of right now I am just using the pull start option, it is a pulling tractor, so it doesn't need to start every day, not too much of a hassle. I may put a starter back on it someday (If I fully restore it someday), we will see.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
