I let it cool down a couple of minutes I put the key back in and it started right up.....I do not know if I damaged it at all....it sounds different and seems to vibrate more but i am not sure if I am over reacting or?????




Any thoughts????? Should I just run it????


John Deere LT133.
Put new solenoid on it.
The starter itself may or may not be damaged.. if it still twirls fast enough.. then no need to worry about it.. the best way you can see if it's damaged is to just use it.

You are welcome.
If you did anything to the engine to make it not want to start, chances are, you just got the spark plug wet from unburned gasoline from it just spinning over and drawing the fuel mixture into the cylinder and not burning or igniting it.
If anything, the plug will become wet, or fouled. Then just clean the plug, dry it off and it should fire again.
About the only damage that might happen is overheating the starter motor. Eventually you could wear the brushes out prematurely, but chances are the starter motor will survive. Worst case, it would overheat and can burn out some of the windings in the armature, or just wear down the brushes before their normal time is up, or wear out the bearings/bushings in it, but most likely, everything will be fine, just check the spark plug if it doesn't want to start right away, the plug could be wet.
