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.

Amazing how they design a 30 ton or whatever it weighs piece of equipment so you have to in from the bottom with only a foot of ground clearance.

Was watching this and at the moment you started to grease up the bolts to replace the protective screen an ad for emollient face cream popped on followed by laundry detergent advertised for men. What a hoot! any way got over it and back to the “job at hand”!

I really look forward to your new videos. You really seem to have things dialed in. When I was young I kinda approached things in the same fashion as you seem to do. I absolutely despise the way most things are built. Most of this overpriced junk has not been engineered correctly. Its made to create a hell of a mess for the person who has to come along and repair it. I applaud your ingenuity 😀 Be careful and stay safe 😀

Hey Andrew you need to put a winch on that during thing that little D4 is a bareback and it's no good for that but a winch on it and keep your cat inside of a shed so when you're ready to use it it's good to go man winch shed

There is no core when buying new parts. Cores are just for buying rebuilt parts.

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.

I Think your dad may have been right back in the day, ( just hire a machine when you need it). Some of these machines are lying doing nothing for a long time, not earning, money tied up and costing big bucks to fix. Ok they are good for you tube content, but I still reckon dad was on the right track.

I would say all you needed was a new solenoid, almost always the starter is good whilst the solenoid (main contacter) has melted it contacts

Your batteries stand for long periods which seriously shortens the working life. Have a look at LFP batteries. They can stand for months with no damage and will deliver 95% of the charge capacity so only need to be 30% of the size of a lead acid because LAs can only deliver 30% at full current. They do need heater pads for cold weather so you'd need to think about that. But they will work when cold, you just need a couple of failed attempts to warm the battery cells.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who goes through this type of crap with my "fun" hobbies. Engineers will go on and on about their intelligence but most have little real world knowledge in such things as this. You would be surprised at how much cut and paste I see on specifications in my real job. Anyway, this is so fun to watch because I just went through a 97 Ford F350 10 hour 460 engine oil pan gasket replacement. Look it up... it's insane.

I love your can do attitude Andrew and I like others never saw such a brutal attempt to remove a srarter I own a similar machine and mine starts just looking at the future when you replace a direct drive starter which by design are bulky can get a gear reduction type that is considerably smaller...I replaced one on my cat c12 just because I like the way it sounds and they require less amp draw which would be useful in your machine as it seems to not fire quickly
