    Default ~1965 Case 530- Starter?

    I believe I've burned the solenoid up, but the starter was getting weak and I believe it'll cost me $200-$300 to rebuild the one on it, can I get something better/cheaper? It got to the point that I couldn't get it to crank fast enough with a good battery, being charged by a vehicle (14v) and 4ga jumper wire from post to starter post.

    I think its a 1965 Case 530 with loader/hoe

    I've found this guy on ebay but I haven't pulled mine out of the tractor yet

    Klitch,
    Just be careful to get the correct number of teeth on the starter bendix, especially if it's a 188 diesel engine. The older engines used a 9 tooth bendix. If no one has ever changed the flywheel ring gear and your starter has the 9 tooth, a 10 tooth (which is MUCH more popular) will NOT work.

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for the advice, I was able to salvage the original starter, I will keep your advice in the back of my mind for when I need to replace the starter. Hopefully I don't have to. I see what you mean by the 10 tooth being more popular.
