Does the stump puller starter you speak off properly engage the bevel on flywheel teeth?

I found the three hand difficulty was largely due to having to hold 20# with a weakening arm hold, then trying to wiggle the starter into place.

I built a starter holder using an old scissor jack - see my post here somewhere with photos titled "I Just Installed My 20# Starter By Myself - Easily - $4 Tool"
A search will find it.

I didn't do anything but install the "stump puller" in 02/2011 so I don't know the answer to your question. It has been working fine though. I still have the old starter to use if I ever need to.

I don't know, I just posted the photos, Paul built it. I can look back at his original post.

"If you have a sissors jack (and who doesn't) buy a 4.5" plastic disposal pipe joint (ABS perhaps) for about $4 at any hardware store. The starter is 4.5" diameter as is the ID of the joint you purchase. It has a raised rib inside soas the pipes it joins are centered. Remove this rib with your dremmel or equivalent tool, then cut a minor section from the pipe joint. More than half but less than 3/4 (see pic). Fasten the 60% part (tossing the 40% part) to the top of the jack. I drilled and tapped for 6-32 screws. The starter will snap into the holder atop the jack. When done you can remove the screws and easily store the pipe section."

JSeery,
Thanks for looking that up, seems like a good idea.

I liked the scissor jack idea & kinda used the idea modified to what I had w a small rolling hydraulic jack. Drilled holes in the lift cup & used 14 gauge house wire stripped to attach starter to cup on jack. Worked good. Took weight off the 70 yr old arms & back! Was able to get height right raising & lowering & easy to angle & jiggle gear past ring gear. After starting bolts & snugging snipped wire & pulled them out.
Thx for the idea, will stay on my trick list
