I just got a b-212 and it does not have a starter. I am taking the starter from my 110. The configuration of the 212 is a little different than the 110. Anyone out there have any schematics or guidance on the correct wiring.

Theere were two wiring version for the 110's.  Early incorporated a push button starter, a  key that only shut the engine off, and no solenoid. The later version had a keyswitch and a solenoid. The 212's had a keyswitch and a Solenoid.

 

 Assuming your 110  is a early one?

Wiring diagrams from the B series repair manual:

The wiring at the S/G is same in both tractors.  The other end of the heavy gauge wire (carries the starting current) goes to a different place (starter push button vs solenoid).

Thank you both. My 110 is an early one (1960’s) and is a push button and the 212 is a key turn ignition.

Was able to get it installed and got it to start (with carb cleaner). Going to take off carb and give a thorough cleaning. Any ideas on a link to the gasket for the carb?

Give Sandy Lake Implement a call, they had rebuild kits available last time I checked. (724) 376-2489 is their number I believe.

Local L&G shop would probably have them - or Amazon.  

As @Austin said, a carb rebuild kit may be needed.  You need the engine info to get the correct one.  Sandy Lake can help.
