Hi all

does a starter about a K301 (12hp) or K241 (10hp) fit on a K181 (8hp)?

 

I know that the starter from a k241 will fit and work on a k301

but I am not 100% sure that it will work on a k181

 

Spain is having a problem with his starter on a k181 (8hp) and I have several starters that I know work on the k241, k301 and k321

 

I hate the ship it to him and it does on work for him

 

Thanks

I don't think so. The K161 and K181 use a 16 tooth starter. The other K units use a 13 tooth.

My take of the K series is this:  

 

k91/161/181 = small block 

k241/301/321/341 = big block

 

Got Lyall's message.  My k181 is 20 miles from me but cannot get to it today.

I grabbed the service manual in hopes to figure this out but no luck...

 

Pics on ebay were no help either.  I will work on getting part numbers for reference.

So a bit of searching leads me to this conclusion...

 

k91/161/181 use same starter & k241/301/321/341 use same starter but the starter does not interchange between the two blocks.  

 

I have two k181s and two k301s but they are in storage so I cannot compare the difference.   :mad2:  :mad2:
