Kohler Magnum Twin Starters

Recommended Posts

I have two magnum twins the one with a hole in the block is an 18hp from a Sunstar. It has a long starter that about covers the from mounting hole. The other has a shorter starter not covering the hole at all. I do not have a spec number on this engine as it was assembled from various parts by an ebay "rebuilder". :o

Does anyone know if the starters will interchange, so that the fastening of the engine in the frame will be easier?

I'd hate to swap it bolt everything in then find out it does not work.

There are 2 starters that work on the KT and Magnum twins. The most common has the terminal post coming out of the end cap on the side.

There is also a HD starter that is longer with the terminal post coming out of the end. The long starter will not work on stock shrouding that comes with the Simplicity tractors including the Sunstar and Allis equivalents. I think the long starter will work in the Sovereign frame if the shrouding is cut away.
