Greeting snowblower fans. I tried to fix my old starter but it's toast. So I ordered a new one and it appears to be the same. The only difference is the part that's under the black plastic cap (nose) just beyond the gear is a little bit longer than the original. I don't think that will matter but I just wanted to check here to see if anyone has experienced a problem with that. Otherwise I'm going to mount it and give it a go tomorrow.
