Tecumseh Starter

Anyone have any tips on assembling the brushes, all 4 at the same time. I had an extra set of hands from my wife.

I've never taken a Tecumseh starter apart but have on auto starters. For those you have to pull the brushes out to fit over the armature shaft. I always cut pieces from a metal clothes hanger and bent the end to make a hook.

I use lock wire to hold the brushes back. After you get it back together, snip the lock wires.

Hold them apart with a plastic cork, a dowel or similar that is slightly larger than the rotor. Using a matchstick or something, wet all four brushes with drops of water, them chuck it all in the deep freezer. Check after half an hour, add water if necessary. When all brushes stick, assemble and let thaw. Works like a charm.
