I recently installed a high tork starter. It was fairly simple, a little modification to the bracket for clearance of the hot feed lug. It took a total of three hours. Starts like a dream now, I also upgraded the battery cables to #0, added a car battery with 850 cold crank amps, and upgraded the glow plugs. It starts Instantly now, basically starts in one second. Well worth the modifications.

I am thinking this entire situation must have been an engineering oversight when designing this garden tractor. I also fabricated a stiffener for the alternator after the factory bracket broke a few times. I am presently rebuilding the power steering assemble. One thing at a time. LOL.

Not sure if a great glow plug for this engine was available in 1984, but they sure could have used a relay to power them, and not stress the ignition switch like they did. Also, gear reduction starters were used on other makes in 1984. That should have been available. A bigger capacity battery would have been nice too.

Yes. Originally, the glow plugs were activated when turning the key switch counterclockwise and holding it in that position for however as long as was needed.

This one hooked up to a separate switch now. One of those things I may have to look into, original switch replacement maybe.

OEM Kubota key switches are readily available. If you haven't done the glow plug system upgrade/update, this would be a good time to get it done.

Looks like you're ready for some cold weather!
