Briggs Vanguard Starter Question

Recommended Posts

GregB

The starter in my wife's Cub Cadet (yea I know)stripped the plastic drive gear that rides on the plastic bendix helix.

The old one seemed bone dry.

Put the drive kit on last night but.......

Should the new one be lubed? and with what?

Thanks

Greg

If you lube them, they will gum up and not push back to the rest position. If everything is dry and clean I have had some success with powdered graphite. A couple small squirts will do the trick.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
