Just acquired Gilson/MW 16 twin and am attempting to remove starter for repairs. Any suggestions on how this thing comes off?

:wave: R5cook Welcome to GTTalk! It's great to have you with us! If you could tell us what brand and model of engine are on you MW, we might be able to help a little more. Some pics of your unit might help too.

Thank you for your reply and request for more information. The tractor is Gilson/MW Model GIL-33420A with Brigg Stratton engine Model 401417. The bolts of the starter mount flange have been loosened, the outter bolt removed and the inner bolt blocked by the flywheel. At this point, it appears that the engine must be unbolted from the frame to create room to remove the starter itself. Before I proceed in this direction, does anyone have experience and advice with this task? Regret that I haven't figured out how to upload photos to this site as yet.
