You can find any old postings simply by going to the ARCHIVES page and type in your name in the dialog box for 'keywords', and drop down the other box to say 'ALL'. Everything gets saved except ADS and Off Topics so if you are looking for something in particular you posted in should be there. When the list comes up, they are not in chronological order so you may have to search each one or go by the date posted to find it.
Does the tractor start and run now? Refresh us on what exactly the problem you are having with the starter. Give details like if it is 6 volt or 12 volt, battery condition, rebuilt recently, any new parts, et al. On the 8N, the starter pocket was bored at the Ford Highland Park, MI factory with an eccentric 'scallop' bored as well at the 2 O'Clock position to ease the installation of the starter. The key upon removal is to have two hex nuts at the ready so when you loosen the two long bolts on the starter which secure it to the block, you can install them to keep the starter together before you wiggle it around and pull it off. You will have to remove the drain cock on the block first to get the starter all the way off.
