New starter in a D4 dozer

I hate when jobs turn out like this one. Shit just happens. The correct way to take this starter out means you have a shop dedicated to repairing these machines.

I wonder what is written in the replacement manual? Replacing the starter. 1.See your nearest dealer for a serviceable. 2.mechanism. 3. Scrap the unusable product. 4. Continue to work, do not shut off the unit.

WOW!! I've watched you butcher a few things over the years but, what in the hell were you thinking here? You know service manuals are often free online for older equipment. I bet you there is a nice little section in there about starter removal, rebuild and replacement procedure. I can say with certainty there will be nothing mentioned about torches and skid steers to forcefully rip the f-ing thing out. What a total knob!!!

Always remove the battery cable before the starter wire. I'm sure you did that but it wasn't in the video. Removing that starter bolt is nuts and to get it started back on would be crazy. Some how you always manage to get it done but you got luck pulling on the starter with one bolt still in it and not breaking the block.

A bit unorthodox yes, but I will not give him any grief for yanking it out like that. I understand his principles and mindset. Pulling the belly plate should not be a step for the R&R of a starter, accessibility to the starter should have been a primary concern when the machine was designed. Dropping the belly plate should only be necessary when removing the engine oil pan for major repairs, not something as minor/routine as a starter. The engineers should have thought like "Suppose this machine has a starter failure in mud up to the belly plate." And regarding the "core" of the old starter, new starter probably does not require a core, lots of new starters now don't even want a core unit returned. The OEM starter was old school type with actual field coils, the new starter uses permanent magnet fields, and that is why it is only about half the diameter of the OEM starter.

That sounds like a solenoid issue. The starter will either go or it won't. It may be sluggish or engage the Bendix and not do anything. The clicking will be the solenoid. Also would have been quicker to remove the belly pan.
