- Jim Koenig Halfway between Harvester, MO and Cadet, MO
#3 son reported that the 149 he has been using to move firewood may need a new starter motor. I doubted that, but he brought it home, and it failed all the FAQ tests, and never budged. It was left out in the rain, possibly with a plug missing from the S/G case, and may have been jumped incorrectly with a jump pack (he has a talent). I have never disassembled one, and would prefer to learn once the tractor is running again, so I am in the market for a good used starter generator, preferably near St. Louis, MO. Maybe a Lincoln, IL Plow Day pickup would be a possibility, and a good excuse to go.
