Hi, my Gravely Tractor starter doesn"t work. Can anyone tell me where to locate a good one. I went to NAPA to get a new one but they can"t find a replacement without correct information. Thank you.

Hi Ray,
I replaced the parts several years ago with a kit, and it seemed to work for awhile. I took one to a repairman that works only on starters and he pulled it apart and won"t repair it said it was to bad. If I had a lathe I would have rebuilt it myself. If there was a better one out there I would like to know. Also there isn"t any spark so will have to go through the mag. Thanks.
Bob

FarmallBob, the original starters for all Gravely T-head engines were Delco Remy. I once heard you can take the guts out of a regular DR starter (like a Farmall) and do a transplant into your Gravely starter. I believe a few starters had the same body, but you would reuse the front flange mount and gear drive that the Gravely needed.

But I haven't done that transplant business to know if it works or not. All of the Gravely starters I have played with were not hopelessly gone, and were able to be rebuilt by a starter shop.

www.gravelyparts.com is Richard's Gravely. He used to have rebuilt/new starters available.

Here's a link I had in my bookmarks for a not so cheap version: http://www.amazon.com/STARTER-GRAVELY-TRACTOR-L-MODEL-1108311/dp/B0079PI7TA

Is the Delco tag still on your starter? Would NAPA be able to match you a starter with that information?

Hi Ben, It is a Delco Remy USA 1108311-3A-17 stamped on the body of the starter. It came off a Gravely Tractor I purchased and the man started it by turning the starter with his hand to a different location. It came off an L8 Gravely 1966. Thank you for your help.
