According to a Bush a Hog it is a model 300424 motor. It will turn over when I turn the ignition switch - labors to turn over once or twice then stops. I have cleaned all the contact points ( battery, solenoid, starter, etc) and all the grounding contact points. Still same results. I took my jumpstarter battery and hooked it straight to the starter- still same results. Is this starter bad? Just making sure I did not miss anything I should be doing.

Thanks

This a start/gen?  I had one that worked weakly and then finally just quit. Replaced with another, and good to go. The timing on these engines, changed with points gap is kinda fussy. If too advanced will kinda stop at compression or back kick firing early. Might try adjusting. I'm new to big Briggs too, these are just things I've run into. Carbs on these are another PIA.

First check that the engine turns over easily(correct amount of compression). If compression is too high, adjust the valves. That said, you probably have a worn starter. When the bearings wear on a starter and/or generator the armature may be rubbing against the case. Stop using it. You can get a rebuilding kit for under $20(bushings and brushes). Rebuild the starter or replace it. Good Luck, Rick

Well the good news is this starter generator is also used on the Wisconsin TRA-10D motor, so I have a spare or two in my shop to change it out to see if that is the issue. Thanks for the info. If it is the starter generator....will buy the rebuild kit and get it repaired.....$16-20 bucks seems like a deal to get it back up and going.

Scott, is the Briggs starter mounts the same width as the Wisconsin? I am curious as I need a starter for a TR-10D and have a few Briggs starter to check.

Not sure. I was looking for a rebuild kit and saw where the Wisconsin had the same starter/generator as the Briggs.

Hope that works for you. Could you please post your source for the rebuild

kits. I've got a couple that I should do some time this winter. Thanks.

Try our sponsors. This is on EPAY http://www.ebay.com/...656c96a&vxp=mtr

Notice that it has 2 new bearings, new brushes, and new brush springs. Take your starter apart before ordering. Get an old(before 1975) Chiltons or Motor manual for the proper techniques on putting the generator together. They can be a PITA if you don't know the technique. Good Luck, Rick

Check out the picture. No area to bolt the brace to. Look at the one on the Briggs and the one from a Wisconsin. Wisconsin model number is 110974. Briggs model number is 110874. Looking around in my shop to see what other starter/generators I have hiding.ImageUploadedByTapatalk1386984944.050229.jpg

I don't think I've ever seen one like that. Maybe you can change out the end plate..

Well got it turning and the motor running. Ended up my starter needed a little help with an older weak battery hooked up as well. I don't have a "good" battery at this point.
