After it setting for 18 months in a box I finally planned to install it today after all the flooding yesterday. After getting the dirt dabblers nest off of it the son and I got it installed.

I did not test it before installing and afterwards it would do NOTHING.

That is kind of a sick feeling know there is not returning it now. On double checking it was wired just like the OEM starter and the 12 volts was hot at the starter. On applying 12v to the small empty post it clicked so I swapped out the mounting location of the very small wire and it fired up.

After about six restarts all seems well. The old gear was messed up some and the flywheel ring just a bit chewed on. If this new on will last for another 29 years I will be happy and will replace it on my 90th birthday. :D

When you are 90 I would suggest not buying it a year and a half early. Just in case you kick off before the starter does.

Thanks for a laugh. I was waiting for the movie John Carter to start and cracked up.:D

It died in the fall of 2010 right before I wanted to use it to help a crew build a large version of the two story storage building that you see at Lowes.

After ordering it I took the old one apart to find the engaging parts to be all rusty and falling apart. After many tries I got it to stick together until I could get it bolted back together and it would start sometimes and other times just spin up the electric starting motor. The new one arrived mid project so I did not install it until today.
