Wouldn't it be an inverter, maybe?

That looks like a Briggs & Stratton 12 Volt DC Starter.

Most SnowBlowers use 110-120 Volt AC Starters.

You need to take better photos. The square thing is a rectifier for converting AC input into DC output.

What are the numbers on the starter itself ?? Part number ??

Was there any more to the wiring ??

IF , , , it's a 12 volt starter it might have had a 120 to 12 volt transformer that put out AC and that rectifier was used to convert the AC into DC.

But if so that wiring on the starter is terribly small to try and carry the current a 12 volt starter would use. The lower the voltage the higher the amperage to get the same job done, thus the thicker the wire.

.

me neither but I never really thought about it.
obviously if the starter isn't using a dc battery for power it needs a rectifier

If it is a dc starter, it would also need a stepdown transformer from 120 to 12 volts, which would be a pretty good sized chunk of iron to supply the DC load current.

Work fascinates me.
