Trying to replace starter on my 2305. Some rocket scientist in John Deere engineering put a motor mount right in front of the starter. Not enough space to allow starter removal. Tractor has a 200CX loader. The loader cross brace is right under the motor mount bolts. Removing the cross brace would require removing the 8 bolts that hold the loader mount bracket on. The tractor manual instructions say to remove the starter cap screw, except my tractor doesn't have a cap screw but a stud.
Has anyone run into this problem?
