Ariens ST420 - Starter/Recoil Broken

Hi All. I just picked up an Ariens ST420 second hand. The model number is 932023, and the serial number is 008337. Other than downloading the owner's manual, I am unable to find much information regarding the motor. It is a 4hp Tecumseh, but I am unable to find a serial number on the motor. . The starter/recoil is also broken and does not turn the motor over, but the electric start works fine. I would like to get the starter recoil fixed and replace the belts. Does anyone know the part number for the starter/recoil? Thanks.

I’m thinking it’s the older style starter, Had a ST420 a while back but can’t remember, Anyhow EBay is the best resource for those Tecumseh parts and can be found pretty cheap also.
I think you may need this one (the older style)

Do a search on eBay and find one that matched up if yours is a newer style.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

That is great advice. I will check eBay out.

I canít find much information on the engine. By any chance do you know the model of this 4hp Tecumseh engine? For the life of me I canít find a serial number anywhere, unless wear and corrosion have deteriorated the numbers. I will check again later tonight after work.
