'87 212-6 Starter has problems...

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,


I have an 1987 212-6 that seems to be in fine working order, except for the starter.  When it's cold, the starter works reliably.  But run the tractor for a while, and shut it down, the starter will not engage again.  It seems like it is simply overheating.  Let it cool down, and it starts again without a problem. 


The entire starter/solenoid assembly is very close to the exhaust on this tractor.  There is a heat shield between the two, but apparently it is not adequate.  This seems like a design flaw, but maybe it's a bad solenoid?  Does anyone else have this problem, and what have you done to resolve it?
