On a 1992-1996 520H wheel horse lawn tractor, I have replaced the starter motor and flywheel. I also replaced the coil, condenser, plugs and wires. After all that was done, the tractor started first time cranked and I mowed the 1 acre yard one time. When I went back to mow again it would not start and I see the starter motor is now chewing up the flywheel gears. The new flywheel now has severe burring on the engine side. It looks like the starter is not fully engaging into the flywheel. The mounting bolts have a thick washer. Are those washers supposed to be spacers between the engine and the starter motor, thus moving the nose of the starter closer in toward the flywheel? Am I doing something else wrong?
Ok folks, here's the deal. So far this mowing season, I've had trouble starting the 416-8. M16S- 711523 engine. Serial # 1624708914.
Turn key, bendix spins fast, as it should, but doesn't engage flywheel. Hook up charger on full for few minutes, and will finally engage but spin slow( w/ chargerer still hooked on. Thought battery was weak. Took battery out. Found positive cable eye eaten away so barely hanging on terminal. Battery tested at 12.4v on bench.
You think the week connection at terminal would cause this or look to starter??
bendix is not engaging. just kind of spins.
Whats the best approach to access it to clean it with some spray white grease?
If I take engine shroud off, can I get at it where it attaches to flywheel or do I have to take it completely off?
Seems like the oil fill tube will need to be removed first if I have to take it off.
Does this mean draining the oil?
Or do i have to take engine off frame to get the starter off?
anybody been in this situation? the service manual is pretty vague on removing the starter?
Thanks in advance
