Snapper Riding Mower Starter problem
I have a Snapper Riding Mower, Series 8, 10 hp B/S engine, Hi Vac with electric start, Mod# 28108BE
My starter motor runs but the bendix starter gear will not move up to engage the flywheel even after I put a battery charger on it to boost the power.
The starter gear looks fine and it freely moves up the spindle by hand. I remember years ago, I had a similar problem previously and I bought a few starter gear mechanism parts from a local Snapper dealer. I remember disassembling the bendix drive somehow and replacing the parts. Now I seem to remember how to get the bendix drive to disassemble.
I do see the plastic cone that is on top is broken.
Can anyone direct me to a diagram of the starter and/or how to disassemble the bendix drive?
I can't find any Snapper electric starter drive parts at any online Snapper parts suppliers?
I would appreciate any quick assistance with this.
