    Oh, trust me, I've "saved" the tractor the last few times I felt it was running out. This time was hubby who doesn't have nearly the hours on it I do.

    Lol the way you put that just called to mind the fact that just about every single time I do engine work I rake a knuckle or two and bleed... Large hands in small spaces...

    Use the right tools, not force, and you won't lose a knuckle. There is a reason quality tools cost more than cheap ones.

    same can be said for diesel truck starters also... I found that out on our 1996 F350... kept thinking the batteries, cables and those always checked perfect..so pulled/replaced the starter... gee wished we had a "Duke's Starter and Alternator Clinic " here.

    I did find their address:

    327 Hillsboro Street, Oxford, NC 27565

    could just UPS the darn thng to them with a note that Tom King said they were the best

    I would think so. Call them first. I wish he worked on other things too, but as for starters, I'd rather have one of his rebuilt ones than a new one. If I ever have an alternator go out, I'm going to send it to him as well.
