Excellent service, very satisfied.

I ordered this part for my 1993 18HP model 422707 that would barely start, and often times drained the battery before it started, and chewed drive gears up every 4 weeks. This starter is larger, and heavier than my OEM starter was, which is good. It did require some minor bending of the tins around the motor, but anyone with oppose-able thumbs can install this starter on their opposed twin. It spins great, and fires up fast. Now I just need to replace my magneto to get rid of the hot start problem(Its beginning to get harder to start when hot which is indicative of a bad magneto)

The Starter arrived ahead of schedule and fit perfect. It started the mower without hesitation which was the problem with the old starter it would barely turn over. Great price for a great product Extremely happy with it.

Researched part numbers to be sure this was the right one for my 11 year old 16 HP twin. Great fit and function--cranks like new! Best price I found locally was 3x this price.

The purchased starter motor was the exact size and configuration as the old one. It took longer to remove the interference than to replace the new starter. There is a method of removing the back mounting bolt without pulling the flywheel, I found it on you tube. So, if anyone else needs to replace the starter in the twin cylinder unit, find the procedure. Otherwise you can't get the back bolt out without a lot of extra work. I installed the new starter, connected to the starter solenoid and it fired up the engine as soon as I turned the switch. I am very pleased with the purchase. The local engine shop gets $72.00 an hour to work on engines, the starter cost $38.00 and I replaced it myself. Oh, by the way, my B&S engine is a 20 hp, so the starter fits more than those listed.

Started mower once, than just got whirring sound. Luckily I kept old part (14 years old). Issue was the spindle and gear were worthless plastic that disintegrated so there was no way to engage. Took off and replaced spindle and gear with old parts and works fine. Would not recommend to anyone unless they only need to start mower one time. Will see how motor holds up but am not confident. Price and delivery were good, not negative on seller but the item quality is an issue.

After years of mediocure starting I replaced every wards MTD component again, doubled battery cables up to reduce volatage drop, etc. Finally changed dog of motorcycle batteries for cheapest lawn tractor battery, used car cables, and broke crappy plastic gear again. Put this starter in, with only minor ending of tin to clear the extra 1/2 inch, and thing started better than it ever has. Highly recommend this to replace factory defective junk.

I purchased this starter questioning the price/quality. I went ahead and purchased this starter, and was not disappointed! This is a first class product, with a great price. It has worked flawless time after time in the cold New England weather where it starts my 18 h.p. Craftsman tractor for snow plowing. I would buy another tomorrow if I needed. Quality through and through!

This starter was slightly larger than my original equipment starter. This did require me to trim some sheet metal from the starter cover. In all, it fif quite well and is a more powerful starter. I am very happy with my choice and will buy again if ever necessary.
