My 104 has become my trailer hauling tractor. Maybe 1 out of 30 starts the starter won’t turn. If I manually spin the starter slightly it then seems to work fine.

Seems like I got a bad spot on the starter/generator.

Any suggestion?

most likely carbon buildup on the commutator, short brush, or weak brush spring.
These are not hard to rebuild, replace brushes, bearings, etc... if you have even minimal mechanical skills.
I believe the process is gone over in the shop manual.
