    I have a super z with a 27 hp kohler. The red wire connecting to the starter keeps coming off of the starter. There really isn't a easy way to put it back on. What can I do to keep the wire on the starter. To get it back on I have to reach underneath the mower and fish my hand up to the starter and it is really hard to do. Is there anything I can do to save some time to keep the wire on? thanks

    What kind of connector is it?

    How about soldering it in place.

    If it's a slide on connector take a pliers and squeze the edges together a little, not to much or it will be a bear to get on. If the wieght of the wire is pulling it off a well placed cable tie should help. Steve
