I'm new to this forum but my "iche" isn't to my wife or my family I'm pretty good at making motors crank I got excited when I seen this thing sitting in the weeds I traded a 11hp Honda power washer for it guy said it's a turd and not worth fooling with but I talked him into it when I got it ,it was in pieces but looked like most of it was there I have it now running and driving the linkage was apart motor wouldn't run on its own but after some looking around and figuring it runs great and drives like a champ I think the starter is the only thing giving me fits ive changed the starter with one that did work off a 16hp opposed b&s anything I'm missing or does the starter just not have enough ummmph..... I've changed the battery and the solonoid and cleaned all the terminals I will get pics up as soon as I figure out how

THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT STARTERS FOR BRIGGS L HEADS, A SHORT AND A LONG, BOTH WERE USED DEPENDING ON APPLICATION. BUT THE VANGUARD I THINK USES A DIFFERENT STARTER, IF YOU USED ONE OFF OF A L- HEAD , IT MAY NOT HAVE ENOUGH UMPH.

That's what I was afraid of, I priced a new one it runs 109 at the local repair shop. The good news is I got the mower deck on and ready to run. Since the starter isn't working proper, I pull start it off the front pto pulley just to drive it around lol. Which means I can't run the deck till I get a starter.
