Wonder if anyone has tried a 6V regulator or big ol resistor or something between 12V battery and starter solenoid on a 12V converted 8N ?
I'm having starter drive problems as well as ring gear teeth chipping.
Starter drive 'spins out' causing tractor motor to be bound up till I remove starter and spin starter drive back home on bench grinder.
The drive is fairly new but made in India, I purchased another one that was more $$$ but its country of origin wasn't advertised.
I love my 8N, but the quality of foreign replacement parts has been less than satisfactory.
