Hello.
Does anyone have experience with the gear reduction starter from Hoye for a 2210?
The price is much easier to swallow than the 'original' replacement starter.
That said, I don't want to waste any money and am willing to purchase the original if it's worth it.
I appreciate honest feedback and any assistance.
Thank you very much in advance.
Take care.

I personally don't have any experience but have read of others experience. Here is one by a knowledgeable man (California) on TBN.

I've mentioned this before - I got on Ebay and bought a starter with the same physical dimensions but higher output than what belonged on my YM240.

When I bought the tractor it had a poorly-rebuilt starter that was past the warranty date written on it with auto-wrecker's yellow paint-pen. I thought buying new was better than rebuilding that very slow one. I think original spec is 1.2 or optional 1.4 KW, I found a 2 KW starter listed for a 4 cylinder 40hp Yanmar that had the same dimensions as OEM. One change, the wire down from keyswitch to solenoid had to be lengthened a few inches, no big deal. This starter cost $99.

This more powerful starter still cranks frantically 10 years later. I recommend doing this if the original starter isn't worth rebuilding.

And 1) this could be the remedy, or at least a patch, for a low compression hard to start engine to put off rebuilding it for a few years.

2) These starters use the same small-parts kit as the similar Japanese automotive starter of the same brand name. A DIY rebuild using the proper kit wouldn't cost much. Look on Ebay.

Thanks, Winston.
So it sounds like California is saying that the 2kw gear reduction starter is ok to use?
My main concern is I don't want to damage anything on my 2210.
The unit Hoye is selling is 15 tooth, 2kw.
This should be ok, correct?
Thanks again.
