Electric starter kit issues Craftsman Snowblower

Hello there, I have an 8HP Crafstman Model C950526787. About 25 years old. The started stopped engaging. Took it off and noted that there is a gear tooth with a black steel threaded device in it which fits over the started shaft.

I got a kit today, but the gear tooth with the threaded device will not thread onto the shaft.

Maybe I got the wrong kit? Although all the other parts are fine, including the gear.

Thanks!

Are you sure the old one was bad? When they get old the gear sticks to the shaft and doesn't spin out anymore. Usually all it takes is a little penetrating oil to clean it up and some lithium grease or light oil to lube it up again.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

What model/serial numbers are on the engine

You got a kit, . . . . what was the part number for the kit ?? What was the starters part number on it's ID plate ??
Did you use the snow blowers model number to order the parts or the engines ?? If the engine has been changed that might be an issue.

Any photos of old and new parts ??

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Tecumseh engine right? Electric starter? There are two different starters and each uses a different helix. You'll need to either get the right one, or if the old plate is ok clean it up and reuse it, all the other parts are the same.

Well, he's been gone for a month so either he figured it out, sold it or just doesn't care if it has an electric start.

That happens a lot on other forums, you wonder why they even bothered to ask, huh?
You post something you should come back and at least say something, anything, at least one time?

I hate shoveling SNOW!

Yea, proper etiquette would be to come back and close out the thread somehow when you came to some type of conclusion. Perhaps he is just waiting for warmer weather to fix this?

It's not a big thing it's just nice to have some closure because it's more helpful for the next guy doing a search. With this one we're not even sure what his problem was in the first place, wrong kit or he just didn't understand how it went on ?? I hate when you've gone a couple pages, done research for someone else, posted exploded drawings and then all of a sudden . . . nothing ??

Who knows, I definitely understand the value in finishing a thread and posting your results or methods of repair. This forum has been invaluable to me in regards to my snow blower! I am excited...we are on tap to get 6-10" of snow tonight! Get to put the little mighty mouse predator to the test!
