Hmm, makes sense that the ring gear could be bad. In your one picture there I can actually see a bad spot:



Whether that's bad enough to strip the gear I'm not sure. Could be other bad spots on the ring gear though.

There are multiple spots that look like that so I assume that would cause the starter teeth to skip & strip.

New motor is in place while i mess with the other one.... pretty sure the ring gear is junk either way i took it out and this one is in its place... just a few more things to hook up before I can try and start it up... I had the motor running a few months ago so I have faith....

So I kind of finally got this thing moving again... I drove it on another maiden voyage and the clutch pulley fell off, and I lost a belt bracket & had to order a new one... but I had it out tonight and so far so good... I just need to install the new brake pads i got and try driving it this weekend and see if it will be reliable.... I am still nervous about the starter gear but we will see... I dont know why they suck so bad....

Nice second run it sounds. Very beautiful scenery!

Summer shot potential there.

I'm no oppy expert but I recall something about how you have to shim the starters out to get proper gear lash.

Its a super fun tractor to drive, goes anywhere on my property...

I did try and observe the engagement and I thought it was kind of "shallow", so if this gear fails I have to try something different.

My next mod for this is I need a class II hitch on the back asap for moving my trash cans and trailers....


I was looking at a wheel horse 1277 automatic drive with a snowblower/mower deck looks allot like yours, not running it was 300 bucks.

You can check the starter gear to flywheel mesh using a piece of notebook paper

I would say it was the damaged ring gear that was causing the teeth to strip, after all the starter gear is only plastic and there is quite a bit of force on it starting an oppy. Good to hear that you got it driving again.
