    I picked up a walkbehind minus the engine. I was going to put my 12 hp B&S electric start on it. I've been looking at the wiring diagrams and I ge more confused every time I look at it. Anybody have any experience at this or maybe some good advice? I may just buy a Kaw or Kohler to go on it if I can't figure this out. I know I'll need a battery box, solenoid, starter switch.

    The consensus on this forum is that Kohler and Kawi are far superior engines as compared to Briggs and Stratton. If you're thinking about using those two vs. the BS, I'd strongly recommend it on the basis that it'll probably last you alot longer in the commercial field plus provide more uptime.
