Hello all, I have acquired a John Deere 332 from my father that has passed away. It does run well but the starter has always been an issue. I decided I have had enough and have started working on the machine. We’ve removed the starter and found the solenoid to be faulty. I was searching eBay and found a starter that was decently priced (JD wanted $486 for a new one) so I went ahead and bought it as the engine model number and tractor model number matched in the description. The problem we are having now is that it seems the bendix is just hitting the flywheel and now actually engaging it. The motor spins as it should and it does run. We have taken the flywheel cover off so we can see what is going on. We are unsure what to do next. I have also taken the starter that was originally on the tractor and had it rebuilt and it is doing the exact same thing that the one from eBay was doing. Thank you for any help.
