This video shows how to reassemble an ATV recoil starter. You will be given tips to help with winding and installing that pesky spring. The actual recoil is from a TRX200SX but the procedure is similar to multiple brands and models.
This demonstration was filmed in the lab at Western Iowa Tech Community College Motorcycle and Powersports Technology Program. If you would like more info on the program feel free to contact the instructor @ 712-274-8733 ext 1204 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
When most starters quit, they only need a clean-up of water or oil ingression and carbon dust deposits, their brushes and commutators are within specifications.
New starters cost hundreds $ and any parts could be hard to find. Servicing them with a bit of creativity could save you some money. Brushes could be somehow extended but the commutator segments have to be long enough. Brushes could be as short as 5.5mm not 55mm, my slip.
Do maintain electrical separation between the baseplate + housing + 2 bare wired brushes (ground side) and cable terminal + 2 insulated brushes + armature coil (battery positive terminal side).
Total service time on this starter: 1 hr
This HowToInAFew video shows you step-by-step how to replace and repair your electric starter on your lawnmower engine. The engine shown is a single cylinder Briggs & Stratton, but most small tractor engines are similar.
