Can a recoil starter be installed on a Briggs and Stratton 6s that originally came as a rope start engine, has anyone tried this?

They had that as an option

 

Recoil was 291849 and the starter clutch was 291495

 

There was another one with different shroud and starter clutch as well but dont know the part numbers of those

Yeah I know that it was an option, what I wasn't sure of is are the crankshafts the same?  My Planet Jr. Super Tuffy has a locked up engine that's missing parts, but the recoil is ok, it's easier to find a rope start 6s than one originally equipped with a recoil and I want it to look original to the average person at a show.

Cool, I was thinking about cutting my losses on this one, but may fix instead.

Currently working on a briggs 6s that sits on my planet jr super tuffy. Are the crankshafts really the same? I have a 6s on the shelf with a rope pulley in it and that crank looks different than the one with the recoil.

Is this what was called to as a "bolt on" recoil starter?

post your type #s, I'll look them up in my parts manual.

I thought the cranks were different. The one for the recoil has a snout outside the threads to support the recoil hub. The rope start ones didn't have that.

I was just going by the parts list , there is a variation in type number but was assuming the recoils worked on them all

It would be nice if they showed the variations. It might work but I'm not sure how well. You wouldn't have anything to support or align the center piece of the ratcheting hub other than the rope spool in the shroud.

I had a brain fart but it only brings up more questions. I thought maybe the ratchet clutch assy would show a type number but it doesn't. The strange thing they show 2  different clutch assys but no type number for either one. Wonder how they expected you to know which one you needed? I think I counted 15 different crankshafts listed.

I'm confused as the rest of you on this one, doesn't show any specific type #s for the recoils, and can't believe all the crankshafts that are listed.
