    Just curious if anybody adds key start to their mowers? I have an exmark and I hate pulling it, even when though it starts in 1-2 pulls. Cost? how hard is it to add?

    I hurt my back once and added it to a seeder, think it was like $175 bucks + a battery:dizzy:

    you're going to need:

    battery
    battery box
    wiring harness
    key switch
    starter
    minimum 10 to 15 amp alternator
    the correct flywheel

    Additionally while some blocks have the bosses for the starter cast into the block they will need to have the threads tapped for the starter bolts.

    Some engines will also need a different top engine housing since they don't have the cutout for the starter.

    What engine do you have? Make, model and spec number?
