do something like this, its not a recoil pull start but you get a piece of rope and put a knot at one end then rap it up and pull the engine over. you can probably find it on an older small engine and attach it to the flywheel somehow.

Pulling a big hp engine over ain't always easy.

when you think of it, they have 800cc snowmobile motors you pull start, but they are 2 strokes so your not opening the valves, etc.

The 11HP briggs on my agway has a recoil pull start - the 11HP on my junked snapper RER also had one - i dont see why it couldnt be adapted to a 12HP when its virtually the same motor.

The agway pulls a lil tough, but easier then hooking a battery up.

What do you mean by a pulley lke the pctures i posted? im pretty sure you can buy them or i just thought of this(it would be more of a back-up idea). i think someone posted it but i didn't understand it right away, like the same idea of the pictures i posted but use the mower deck drive pulley to rap the pull cord up on.

for me why i like pull start is because i jump start all my lawn tractors(they all have dead batteries) and when they run out of gas or stall out from being on to much of an angle i cant start them again. i could get batteries or a booster pack, but it would cost about $500 for new batteries, or $100 for the booster pack(which i should get but i dont want to buy it until i get my Toro done)

If you must go with the manual elbow. Use a larger diameter pulley. A larger pulley means an easier pull, but you need a longer reach.

Yeah batteries arent cheep - im planning on getting a couple large CCA batteries here soon, tired of my old ones needing to be boosted all the time. Suppose i cant really complain tho.

Doesnt make sense to buy batteries for all my tractors when i can only drive em one at a time.

Ive seen people wrap clothesline string around their flywheel blower fins and so it that way. Youll have to remove your blower housing to do it though, and it might damage the fins if they are plastic and not die cast.

I would be careful starting it from the fins, although most flywheel fins are cast iron, they are weak.

Pull starting off from it shouldnt damage it though, unless youre pulling it with a truck.

Even a slight bend throws the balance off.

best to use the proper hub bolted to the flywheel.

Or just spring for the starter

So how much is a starter worth down there.?

I've been known to buy a tractor for a starter and a few parts. I've always done well doing it.

I didn't pay much, but hey, it was parts and i got money out of it on the back end.

Look around on eBay, you might be able to find something cheap or a replacement part.
