Case anyone wants to know, lots of repair forums have debated 12 volt dropping resistor for 6 volt starter to death.

Kind of reminds me of a professor who could mathematically prove a bumble bee doesn't fly. Poor bee never studied math? ;-) doesn't know any better lol

When something works, it works; whether we understand or approve or not :-)

People are sure weird in that they only see what they want to see. "If all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail"

Bottom line, if using a dropping resistor works on your tractor, make use of it, and don't let anybody know whose belief system would be offended by your successful application! lol >8'-D

I'll tell you this much, if thoroughly cleaning and using dry silicone on the internals of my starter's inertial Bendix Drive doesn't give me positive results I want, I know where some old fencing wire would make a nice wound dropping resistor, and I would try that before I spent the money for a replacement Bendix Drive.

But hey, that's me. I'm enough of a free-thinker, that I really don't care all that much about other's "sacred-cow beliefs" (mostly when their opinions are proven at odds with reality).
