What "Tool" Would You Use?

Recommended Posts


Getting around to repairing the gear tooth starter on the 7016H I picked up last year so I have a working spare.Need to replace the "Drive-Starter", the parts that move to engage the ring gear. It's the "old" style (Fig 2) and the repair instructions say to use "Briggs Tools" as can be seen in the repair instructions:


No need for the removal tool since the "C-ring" is what failed. But what would you use for the install tool? Pics of the parts:



I'm thinking a small deep socket that will just go over the shaft and press the C-ring into the recess of the end piece.

Briggs has a tool for that, 19435. It is a slotted piece, where you first slide the ring on the tool then push the tool onto the shaft, then slide the ring into the groove. That tool is aroudd 40 $amolie$. :D

Bob, thanks for explaining how the tool works.

There's a "pic" of the tool at the bottom right of the instructions. No way I would I have figured out how the tool worked based on that "pic".

      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!😁
