Hello all, this is my first time ever posting on this and I wanted to get a feel for it. I have a 1951 Ferguson TO 20 and it was running great yesterday but I went out this
morning to go to start it and I hear the starter spinning when I put it in the gear S but it is not engaging
I have read a lot and it doesn't seem like a starter button switch problem or a battery/cable problem.
anyone know what it might be

Turn engine over/ rotate engine IE. HAND Crank...or place transmissional gear and push Tractor forward...there is a possibly a tooth and or teeth on the flywheel are worn paddle in one spot..?

Remove Starter and inspect starter drive...starter drive may be of an over-running clutch design / Bendix.
Drive may be worn out.? Starter drives are often a ONE WAY drive design. They must lock up to start engine and release after Engine is running.

Remove starter and inspect all teeth on Flywheel..

Bob.

Only a suggestion......

If you are in the USA...this site YESTERDAYS TRACTORS sells starters......

If you reside in a location that rebuilds starters that would be my first choice.....:)

You could purchase the overrunning clutch only.....

Be sure you know ..

Do you require a 6 Volt starter or a 12 Volt starter...?
Was your Tractor a FACTORY 6 Volt starter that now has a 12 volt system???

Bob..

If its a bad tooth on ring gear? This will happen when ever that bad tooth lines up with starter gear. I have a tractor that does this, My remedy is to grab fan blade and turn engine slightly and problem solved.
This doesn,t happen often and not certaintly not worth splitting tractor to replace ring gear.
