Electric Start

I want to add electric start to a Tecumseh HSK50. Are the cheap aftermarket units on Amazon ($70) any good?
I don't have any good local sources for used parts. What's the best option?

This is the crap you run into these days.

Think the vendor of the starter motor must have made a mistake on price. There are lots of other ones on ebay at reasonable prices. Agree that you have to do your homework when shopping on Ebay, ask lots of questions if in doubt.

Does hour flywheel have teeth for a starter?

Work fascinates me.

You'r better off looking for those guys that have lawn mower/blower shops along every road in the US. Just about all of them have "parts" equipment around and you can usually find just about any part for any motor etc for very reasonable prices. You might have to unbolt them yourself.

Never had electric start. The ring gear has teeth, tapping the bosses on the block doesn't appear to be difficult. Any other concerns?

never really used mine unless i was close to a receptacle, had an extension cord nearby(like a few feet away), those 2 conditions hardly ever happened, if they did i used it just to make sure it was still working.
if carb is adjusted right one pull starts it up easy even in cold weather.
imo, ymmv
