Tractor Problems

The starter stopped engaging on my 1964 Ford 4000.  This is a bit of a problem as I use the scraper blade to clear the snow from the driveway and put a hitch on it to move things around.  This starter looks different than anything I’ve ever seen.  The teeth of the flywheel is near the motor and the gear comes from the back side.  I understand how the spiral gear drives a gear (hidden under the metal collar in this case), but I don’t see what retracts it.  Time to do some searching on the internet and try and find an answer.
