826 electric start plug
Hi, my 2010 Toro 826 OXE electric start plug has its ground pin pulled out of the socket. Can the plug housing be open and have a new three prong installed or do I need to buy a new plug and starter button unit wired to the starter motor?

The dealer said the black box could be cut open and fixed but I opted for replacement. I took my assembly off and waited almost five months for the new one under warranty. I now leave a outdoor extension cord on the machine permanently now. The ground plug is there for a reason, water and shock. It is a safety item that can be bypassed but think about it.
