Who needs a starter anyway?

The great deal I got on a used starter-generator for my 3416H turned out not so great. It was good for 2 starts before it seized up. I took it off and tied the belt back, took a 6' length of 1/4" rope, wrapped it around the flywheel and started her the old fashioned way. She fired on the second pull. I may not even bother replacing it. Anybody know of a hand crank assembly for the front like in the old days? That way I won't even need the rope! Brent Baumer

When I rebuilt the engine in my Simplicity 3416H I put a newer Briggs & Stratton engine in with a starter & alt.And a little updates,hydraulic lift.And Starts better in the winter then a starter-generator.[A href='http://www.geocities.com/yosemite/falls/5395/index.html']http://www.geocities.com/yosemite/falls/5395/index.html[/a]

I don't know about the 3416, but the B series ACs had a place to wrap a starter rope on the right side of the bevel gear shaft. I started my B-12 that way many times before replacing the starter/generator. Started on the 1st or 2nd pull in the summer 3rd or 4th in the winter. Tim
