 Gator starter engaging problem

When cold and sometimes when hot, the key switch must be repeatedly triggered to get the solenoid to actually hookup with flywheel. It deploys and just spins. Brand new battery, with a $25 JD starter "enhancement" relay installed.
The starter is seemingly functional on benchtest. When hot, the starter bendix most often engages and the engine starts immediately. Thoughts?

Probably the starter drive or as Deere calls it starter clutch.

Try removing starter and file flywheel teeth and starter gear teeth. A mushroomed backlash develops and doesn't allow starter to engage. Good luck.

Sept 2011: I have the exact same problem. I replaced the solenoid and it made no difference. Anyone understand why the starter will only engage randomly?

Dave6489: how did you solve your problem for good?

Thank you!
