Hi all.........Got a great deal on a 1886-01 husky. Got her to start up after changing the battery, checking all fluids, came with a 33" tiller. Here's the kicker......The bendix type starter does not engage the fly wheel. So i used a screwdriver to push it in and hold it there while cranking, it runs. I pulled the engine hoping to repair the starter, but the kit i ordered seems way too small to fit the starter shaft. Sooo i am looking for a starter bendix repair kit. the starter is mounted by 3 bolts to the oilpan, thru an opening. All the manuals i checked had the 'L' shaped mounting bracket on the starter. I am starting to think someone changed out the starter?, or no? Its a Kohler K482s-35113b engine sn#3018425. Thinking the tractor is an 1886-01 by some details....pull out choke, pull out throttle with lock, cannot find sn# sticker for tractor. Also the tractor is Blue in color. maybe someone can help me figure this out..............

Thanks,

Bernie

Either it's not spinning fast enough to raise the gear, or the gear is sticking.  Does it engage with the plug removed?  If not make sure you are getting strong current to the starter like with jumpers off a car battery.  If not try oil the bendix on the shaft maybe it's stuck.  If that doesn't work could be weak or hanging brushes.  Remove starter take apart have a look.  Brushes under $20 just need to know make of starter prestolite, bosch etc, brushes easy to install.  just start with the simple stuff one step at a time good luck

Sounds like you have ordered a newer kit the early K482s had a different starter.

Welcome to GTT. You have a great tractor. Download the manuals from our Manuals Section if you need it. We would like to see pics so that we can admire your treasure. Good Luck, Rick

Thanks everyone. Its a very good tractor, not that i know, only had it a week, but it does run fine. Pics to follow.....OldFord, removed the starter, hooked up to a battery charger 12v 50amp setting, she sure spins good, just does not kick out the gear. Took it apart (just the bendix), cleaned and oiled it up, smooth action. Still does not kick the gear out. Now how to post pics..................

Yep, going to do that today, find some where and give em a call. There are several local. Can I get a close year for the tractor/engine? I am thinking 1971.

Took starter to local Heilig repair, there was lots of mmm's and oh's, and whats it from, year.... Hopefully they can do it. I left it there, as they could not give me a direct answer. Crossing fingers now.

Oh, and anyone got the blue paint code?
