There is a 18.5hp opposed twin on craigslist near my area for $100 is that a good deal? But it needs a starter... He says it's $30 on Amazon and I found one on eBay that I think will work... Just needing some help cause I don't know if that's a good price... He says it's in good condition and looks very clean in pictures... But here is eBay ad for starter if that will work?

No, pretty sure thats for a intek single cyl. Is it just straight up missing the starter or is it bad? You can rebuild em, or if it needs a starter gear thats cheap too.

that is the correct starter for a opposed. I think $100 is a bit high, but you could talk him down a bit.

$250 is way more than I'd be willing to spend. If you find the right guy maybe..... I'm not that guy. lol
