Straight 550 starter swap question

Post by Sam58 » Fri Aug 10, 2018 9:51 pm

Bought a 1981 JD 550c crawler and it has been working well for me as a newbie. Starting is a little hit or miss and I saw the dents on the solinoid when I bought it. Noticed the pos bat cable was getting hot when trying to start. Got the click with a bad solinoid so changed it along with new cables and ground and replaced the disconnect switch. No more clicking but starter turned slow and would not start. Have the bat on a charger now will try again. I have a starter on the way and my question is pulling the lift cylinder out of the way like the service book said. Looks like I need to drive out the roll pin holding the pin to remove and raise the front of the cylinder. Am I correct and is the retaining pin directional.

Retired and having fun learning a new skill in 10 acres in Wa. Any help would be appreciated
