Does any one know the spec amp draw on the model 80 starter motor. It turns very very slowly with a good 6 volt Optimum battery. I cleaned all connections
The previous owner had used a 7.5 tp 8.0 tractor battery which I think was a “band aid” to solve the slow speed starter problem.
Knowing the spec amp draw and comparing to what I get on my starter, I will get my answer send it out for a complete rebuild
Hi Art- Reed’s manual says the starter Model 297 should draw 150-300 amps, turning at 130 RPM. Running free the current should be 60 amps at 6 volts. Brush tension should be 2-1/4 to 2-3/4 pounds.
I have an S81. Hope your figure out your situation. Happy New Year!
