Pulling a starter on a Powermax 4041

Recommended Posts


I know that pulling the Onan CCKB out of a Powermax has been discussed before to remove the starter, but I haven't seen this issue brought up: As I was getting ready to take the starter out, I found that the bracket and bolts were on the inside of the flywheel. I could remove the lower bolt with a socket extension, but the second bolt required me actually taking the old starter apart and getting to the bolt from behind. The bolt head was rubbing up against the oil case on the lower half of the motor. I actually removed that as well so i had easier access. The picture isn't great but I couldn't get in any closer because the bolt seemed so hard to reach. I've looked at old threads and in the pics I've seen the bracket appears to be on the flywheel side with the bolts in a much more accessible place. Has anybody run across this before? Is this the proper place for the bracket?

So I was able to get the new starter in and put the motor back in yesterday and she fired right up. I replaced that hard to reach bolt with a socket head caps screw so both can now be taken out without taking off the flywheel and oil case.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
