The starter gear won't engage. It turns over. It used to engage all the time. Then it was intermittent. Now not at all. The starter motor spins but the gear just doesn't engage the engine. Will a new drive starter likely fix the problem? If so, which drive starter do I need? I can't find one for the 26hp model. This was off a Husqvarna garden tractor.

Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Wrench Set, Nutdriver, Mallet
Broken drive starter gear
I probably could have gotten by just replacing the gear (eReplacementParts.com even told me it was most likely just the gear), but I chose to replace the whole drive-starter assembly because (a) it wasn't that much more expensive, and (b) I didn't want to discover during the gear replacement that I also needed another part in the assembly.

The instructions sent with the drive-starter assembly were very brief, but quite clear and more than adequate. After I finished, the satisfaction I got from turning the key and hearing the sweet sound of the flywheel turning and the engine firing made it worth every penny I spent repairing it myself and every dollar I didn't spend having someone else do the repair!

Wrench Set, Punch, vice
Lawn mower starter pinion gear wore out.
1. Unbolted and removed the starter using box wrenches. You may want to unhook your battery so that you do not risk being shocked or burned before you start the removal of your starter.
2. Used vice to hold the starter firmly.
3. Used a small punch to tap out the old roll pin or you can use a Arbor press if you have one.
4. Once roll pin comes out pull off old pinion gear and install the new gear like directions show.
5. Reinstall the roll pin the same way you took out the old one by using a small punch or press.
6. Rebolt the starter back to engine. Plug the wires back in and you should be ready to start it up.

Tractor ran rich and extremely hard to start
I thought the float valve was not working, even after a complete carb rebuild. Pulled the head to check for burnt or stuck valves, significant carbon build up, but valves still closed correctly. Had weak spark, but it was there, so I replaced the coil, it did not run at all after that, so I pulled the kill wire from the magneto, the machine started, the carburetor adjustments were effective, better than before. Found a safety module that checks seat interlock, gear interlock, and deck engagement before you are allowed to start the machine. This module 68-2940 part number on a Toro 55600 series tractor kills the engine by grounding the ignition magneto coil.
So, I replaced the head gasket after cleaning the head and valves, put a float valve in the carb, by the way the little green ring goes in with a raised lip on the bowl side of the valve, replaced the coil and will install a new ignition switch and module coil when it comes in.
