Cost of converting to electric start ?
My mower has a 149.3CC 3.5HP Briggs & Stratton engine, with pull start, and it is quite hard to start after sitting for a while, so I would like to convert it to electric start in the future.
But, how much would it cost, and where would I get the kit ?
Thanks in advance.Live every day as if it's your last - because one day - it will be.

Re: Cost of converting to electric start ?
It could be done ... but not very practical ...
IF you already have a flywheel that has the ring gear, then you will need:
1. starter motor.
3. charging circuit with alternator and rectifier/voltage regulator.
4. associated wiring to hook it all up.
you will do better to sell the one you have and buy one with everything already with a starter...
It can be done, but rounding up all the parts will be challenging... KennyV
