Mule 610 starting problems

I have an 06 Mule 610 with about 650 hours on it. I have been having in intermittent problem with starting. The battery is good, no loose ground wires, or any other easily identified issues. But about 50% of the time when you turn the key, you can hear (and feel) the solenoid moving in the starter motor, but the motor itself fails to turn, so it does not start. And then 5 minutes later you might be able to go back to it and turn the key and it will start right up. Or it won't start at all. But every time you can hear the solenoid moving.

I have pretty much decided that the starter needs to be replaced. I can see it sitting there right on top of the engine. (Did I mention that my mule is 120 miles away from where I am sitting now? I keep it at my property and only get to use it - or work on it - on the weekends.) But when I look in the service manual - man, they have you removing a whole lot of parts, apparently just to allow you to get to it. (You are instructed to remove the torque converter among other parts.) And some of these steps require tools that I don't have.

I would prefer to do this work myself as the nearest dealer is 2 hours away. Anyone have first-hand experience changing the starter? Is it really as hard as it is described in the service manual?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, to get to the starter you have to remove the torque converter........sad but true......poor part placement. It's not a hard job to do as long as you have the puller for the converter. Without the puller you'll be making up all kinds of new swear words.... :\.

      I Recently purchased a Massimo T-Boss 550F last fall with their 60" snow thrower because I couldn't find a decent UTV here in Southern Ontario; nothing in stock anywhere. I am having really bad buyer's remorse after spending time on it and reading all the bad online reviews. The company boasts the fact that it is built in Texas, USA, so I was hoping to do the right thing by buying, "Made In North America" but it is still Chinese Junk, assembled in the USA. and I am starting to realize that I am going to have a lot of difficulty getting parts for this thing; I can't even get an oil filter, finally bought a "Hisun" filter and hope it fits. i busted the shear pins in the snow thrower and can't find replacements for that either. The thing is so hard to change gears most of the time; I am terrified I am going to wreck something. The place I purchased it from is absolutely useless. Can I adjust something myself? Anyone out there have this problem and have some advice (besides selling it and buying a good brand)?

      Hi, I'm a mechanic and am at a loss for a customer's 2021 UT400. This thing only got used for the end of the summer, only has 3.3 hours on it.
      So far I've found:
      No start - starter switch works, relay in relay/fuse box clicks. Solenoid is operating as it should, no signal to  solenoid to start. Starts and runs when I hard-jump the solenoid.
      No F or R lights on dash - N lights up, and goes off when shifted into either gear
      No brake lights - tested switch, it works as it should
      No turn signals
      Parking brake light is on - switch is working correctly, doesn't change status
       
      All connectors are secured, no wires look out of place. I have an incredible dislike for HiSun equipment. Every one I've dealt with has been full of gremlins. Has anyone else had any issues like this? Would this be something wrong with the dash? Or the relay/fuse box? or both? I don't want to contact Coleman and have them send a bunch of stuff that won't fix it, especially with how long electronic stuff takes to get these days. The last warranty I did for them was a go-kart that shelled the drive shaft bearings and it took 4 months for them to send us the parts.
      Any help or knowledge would be much appreciated!

      I have a 2015 kymco 450I side by side with only 800 miles. I use it to plow snow and pull a manure spreader. Yes in low.  Last night it started making a loud chatter in the engine area and shut off. Couldn't change the gear selector unless it was while turning the ignition. Pulled the belt/clutch cover off and everything was in ok shape. Took the whole assembly off and it still chatters. Looks like the splined rod towards the rear of the engine is starting and stopping in its own and that's where that noise is coming from.  Is that part of the clutch and do I need to pull that too???  Don't know how deep to dig. And where to get these parts.

      It has done this since day one that we purchased it from Tractor Supply. I contacted the service man that Tractor Supply recommended and he told us that there wasn't anything he do to help us with. Has anyone had this same problem and can offer suggestion on to correct this issue ? It would be greatly appreciated.

      I thought the problem was electrical but I just found this in the oil filler tube. Does anyone recognize the part? I know I'll have to tear down the whole engine, and maybe I'll find the rest of it in there. Something beg enough to seize up the engine. That was the problem I was trying to diagnose.... 'Cause it's locked up. 
      Thanks in advance.
