I'm picking up a Bolens 1220 tonight. The seller tried to start it when I looked at it, and could not. He was really making the starter smoke. He called today and stated he got it running, stalled it and then killed the starter.

My question is, where do I get a new starter. A starter is new to my repair skills. I hear it's not difficult, just new to me. Can starters be rebuilt? Where would you get that done?

It has the original tecumsah engine.

Where do I start?

Thanks in advance

Brand new one on ebay for $149 plus shipping. There are also rebuild kits on ebay for them. I'm not familiar with Bolens tractors, but I believe your starter belt drives off the flywheel side, & if so you need a clockwise rotating starter. Here's the one on ebay:
