If you flip it you won't have the chamfer on the end of the teeth for the starter gear to slide into.
You could remove it and rotate it, a 4 cylinder normaly stops in 2 areas on the flywheel, so if you retate it 90 deg it will be stopping in an area where there is very little wear.

If you go through all the work to split the tractor you might as well replace the ring gear. A new one runs around $50. Deals In A Pinch has it for $31.65 plus shipping.

Yes you can flip it if you can get it off with out harming it but if it is bad enough to need that done then your better off to install a new one and be done with it for another 50 years or flip it and maybe get 10 years if your lucky

I always flip them it they are good enough. They will last as long as they did the first time if the starter drive is not in bad shape. Trying to use a crappy starter drive is what kills the ring gear in the first place. I always put the ring gear in a vise and bevel the teeth with an angle grinder. I have never had a flipped ring gear fail me.

If you're going to flip it and bevel the teeth, you may also need to add a chamfer to the ID corner so it seats against the shoulder of the flywheel.

Yeah Mike....Seems like a lot of work considering a new one is somewhere between 30- 50 dollars.

Maybe not. I put a ring gear on my Ford 2000 a few years ago. $88 and I had to get one from a dealer. Aftermarket sources were out. Must have been a popular replacement item. Also used an aftermarket starter gear and it's already grinding again lately. You get what you pay for.

I know these prices are correct. I already looked then up.

I haven't heard of anyone having problems with the replacements.

If it hasn't already been fliped I would just flip it. The gear is just straight cut. Or atleast the one I replaced on my Allis B was. I would have just fliped mine but someone beat me to it. But the new one I purchased was close to $100.
