Scotts L2048

Went to mow grass last night, mower dead, so I tried to charge the battery but it tested bad, so off to autozone for a new battery... Put it back on and thought the starter was very weak. Got the grass cut and shut it off in the driveway.. This is where I went wrong.. It would not start. Did some checking and found the solenoid to be bad. So I thought what the heck Ill just jump across the solenoid and get it put away, this is when I found yet another problem.. Starter locked up. I feel this a been coming for a while since the starter has gotten much weaker and took more juice to get it going. SO I started pulling it apart last night and here is what I found.

This is what it took..

To get this off..

So my question, at what point did someone think a plastic bendix on a starter was a good idea?

The first one I had go out, I ask the parts guy why it was plastic? His response was that it is easy to change the starter drive, but not the flywheel gear. So it was made that way to save the flywheel.

You may want to keep a spare on hand.

The parts man was right that is why they are plastic. They have to consider idiots that own them and try to start them while they are running.

I have since rebuilt the transmission in it. A planetary gear grenaded and went thought the bottom pan. Put some other new parts in it and it rolls on strong.

And there are a lot of idiots out there who ruin it then complain that the company made a piece of junk that's expensive to repair/replace. Old cub cadets are still the best! Starter/generator via belt lasts forever.
