Have new 88 Speedex Eagle with 12hp vertical briggs. Starter works but found the drive retainer broken and gear jambed. I want the whole gear drive kit. Has 16hp gear, but finding diff parts for rest in kits or else kits come with more than needed, or PO has diff parts from other rigs?? Mine as removed does not have a spring, but could have been lost. Has the roll pin to hold a plastic retainer with slots for pin. Then I think gear just sets down over the spiral gear that has the big flat end at motor end. The gear can't pass the retainer. The spec number says starter is a starte AND alternator, part I don't get. Is the thing supposed to stay engaged when running to be an Alt?? Or, does that just mean engine has alt under flywheel like most? This is NOT a starter/gen like old units. PO also had a metal washer like retainer over the plastic one and didn't allow the pin to go into the retainer then. I'm thinking that is not right part on it and should not be there at all. Seems that washer was jambing up into the flywheel teeth is why it didn't look right and as noted, pin not in slot then either. Still not sure on coil spring tho under the retainer. SO, need parts book for my Type number engine maybe? I went to Briggs site and could put in model 281707 and only part of spec 0187-01, it left off the 01 at end. Then instead of Code 88041811 it wanted a Trim number, which I don't have and didn't work. Re-tried with two xx in that spot and lit up at first, but didn't work again. So, lost on how to get parts book for my spec. OR, can I just get one of those bigger kits on epay and NOT use all the parts then? I have saved several to study and most look the same with same kit numbers or close. Searched here for 280000 model. Closest was 240000 and it is diff, mine is vertical and next model shown is 320000 bigger rigs. Wouldn't you know I would get some newer hard to find one. Must be my luck it always seems I get the odd ones.
