last year the starter gear blew off on my bolens 1886. i bought this starter from JOP over the winter and threw it on the shelf. im finaly getting around to fix this beast . i pulled it out today and the old starter is much bigger and the gear is different than the one i bought that was listed for a K482. where can i find the correct starter or rebuild kit.



man what a job this turned out to be , the loader sure didn't help any.







just mess'in around with the loader from the bolens.

That K-482 is a great engine but getting that starter out is a real bear. A Grizzly at that. This is one one the reasons I went Honda on last repower.

the shafts look different lengths and the old starter has 11 tooth gear and the new one has 9 ?.

The starter you got from joe is for the later K482's

1886-05 and later.

I just did the starter on mine & the only thing I needed to do to get it to work was to grind about a 1/32 of material from the big hole in the mounting bracket... The 9-tooth worked perfectly as a replacement for that big old starter...
