Starter spins when key is turned, but doesn't engage fly wheel to turn engine. Replaced solenoid on starter, cleaned the drive gear and shaft on starter, and checked gear on fly wheel for damage. Starter sounds as though the gear on starter is coming out and hitting fly wheel gear but not meshing to turn engine.
It's the same starter, I've owned this tractor for 20 years. It began this last year and I replaced the solenoid, but there wasn't any change. It will engage after several tries but I am worried abut damaging the gear on fly wheel. There is slight lateral movement between the shaft od and gear id, like maybe the bushing is worn slightly. Might remove and measure to be sure the starter shaft isn't worn tapered and make a new bushing????
