Okay so I haven't been very active on this forum for a while.. Work has been really busy (thankfully.) Anyhew, one of my project tractors has been sitting for a while because it needed a battery. I bought a battery, went to crank her up, and she started just fine. Turned it off to talk to my mother who was outside gardening and next time I tried to start it, it would only turn half to one revolutions before quitting. After a few tries, I smelled something burning, and sure enough there was light smoke coming from below the starter. Thankfully, it didn't (and still hasn't) caught fire, but any clue what is going on here? Bad starter? It really seems like it is under some heavy strain trying to start. And not that it makes much of a difference because its not too hot out, but I bought the premium battery with the extra CAs and CCAs.
