Could be that a brush or the bruches are hanging up or they could be just wore out, do not raqp on the starter with a hammer it could break the permant magnet then the starter is done for.

On one of mine I removed the tanks cleaned the area around the leak usually a hole that has rusted through and used a large soldering iron and soldered the hole closed, I tried JB weld a couple of times but after a couple of months it would lose its bond and would fall off or just leaked.

Hi Siman, good luck with the starter repair, if you don't have a Kohler Service Manual, you can go to the manuals section and download one either the K91-K341 Service Manual or the K361 18hp Shop manual in the electrical section of the manual it should a simple easy to fabricate tool to ho;d the brushes while replacing them.

I don't understand why you can't get to the manuals yet. Should have full privilege by now. 

 

On the starter, check for worn bushings also.

Looks like this is the orignal starter. There is a little play in the bushings. My kit I ordered comes with bushings. I will replace for sure. I fabricated my tank from a 8 in aluminium pipe. Have a few small leaks. Has any one tried the kreme coatings?
