    Last time I was at the shop, they said that the older models were joined & newer models were separate. When I needed one replaced, I went ahead & put a newer version on it.

    It depends on what model and spec. engine you have ?

    Ya gotta make up your mind, MT= Magnum Twin/ CH= Command Horizontal. There is a spec. number below the engine model number also.

    The solenoid is mounted on the starter, Looks like that one may be fun to replace with it down inside that frame.

    I have a starter problem with my unit in my avatar, The drive is sticking. But, Have to remove the whole body then the engine out of the frame. I've been un-sticking it with a long screw driver for two years now. :dizzy:

    hello, remove blower from underside of machine . This leaves the starter mtr exposed enough for easy removal. If starter is the original nippon type a suggestion would be to replace with the Delco unit .

    Remove the motor... by far the easiest route. 20 minutes to remove & 20 to install. Piece of cake.

    BTW... I hate Walker mowers.
