Helo Larry, there are several good threads on how to lift the engine to get at the starter. When mine gave up, I only needed to pull it out, clean the brushes, and cut back the insulator between the contact segments on the shaft (Commutator) this is done with a broken off hacksaw blade. I did mine about 4 years ago, and last I heard it was still working (I loaned the tractor to a buddy 3 years ago). Good luck with yours.

welcome larry! i'm rebuilding a 4041 myself. starter works fine but pulled the engine to replace the stator and gear cover. also pulled out the brake disks to get the oil out. the guy thats doing the work for me said my axel shafts look like new. ebay is a good source for parts. later, greg

Welcome aboard. With the starter issue, a lot of times on these Onan's it turns out to be the key switch won't give enough amps to the relay on the starter. Take the wire coming from the relay and run it to the positive terminal and see if it starts. Al Eden sells a relay kit to remedy this.
