    Trying to change starter on 60" cut Flatlander Dixie Chopper with 26.5 Generac engine. Can get unbolted but frame keeps starter from dropping out.
    Starter has selanoid built all in one.

    Changing cause selanoid only clicks when try to start and assume starter must be froze up.

    Any help appreciated.

    I'm yet to work on the Flatlander with this engine, If there is no way to get it out take the screws out of the flywheel cover and raise it enough to get it out.

    If it's only clicking have you checked battery condition and ALL connections ? If so it sounds like the solenoid is bad over the starter.
