Having said that, if it takes more that 1 revolution to start the tractor you have other things to consider. If it wont start at all, then grinding away on the starter will cause damage to any voltage system.
Egg-zactly. If the logic most people applied to converting to 12 volts really held water, they'd be going straight to 24 volts....bet that would really make the starter spin in cold weather!!
