If the linkage arm isn’t operating the switch on top of the starter motor then the switch can be moved forward by slackening the four slotted screws, the switch bracket has elongated holes to allow movement.

I think what he’s referring to is when the starter motor pinion doesn’t mesh with the starter ring and the gear lever is pushed far enough forward to engage the starter motor. This results in the teeth of the pinion and starter ring grinding against each other.

Putting the tractor into gear and rocking it will move the starter ring to a position where the pinion will engage successfully. When this happens on mine I press the button on the end of the starter solenoid to spin the starter, when the starter finishes spinning its pinion is usually in a position to engage.

When I first got mine running I wasn’t used to the feel of the gear lever which resulted in a lot of starter ring gear crunching. After while I got to be able to feel the starter pinion either engaging or not as the case may be, if it doesn’t engage, a couple of gentle waggles back and forth of the gear lever usually gets the pinion to engage.

Just realised in my earlier post I said to move the switch forward to get it to engage, I should have said backwards.
