Electric Starter Modification

Can I add an electric starter to my engine?

If your engine/equipment was not originally equipped with an electric starter, the addition of an electric starter would not be possible for the majority of our engines. In many cases, this type of modification can be costly as, at a minimum, the following parts/components would also be required:

  • Starter Switch

  • Starter Solenoid

  • Wiring for switch and solenoid

  • Charging capabilities/alternator

  • Battery (may purchase a B & S Battery)

In addition to cost, space limitations or interference caused by equipment components may also need to be considered.

In any case, your best source of information regarding modifications or any engine concern would be a Briggs & Stratton Service Center Locator.

  • Use our website's Service Center Locator.

  • Visit and enter "Lawn Mowers" or "Engines-Gasoline" in the Category search field and your Postal Code in the Location search field.

  • Call the Briggs & Stratton Automated Hotline at (800) 444-7774. This hotline is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week and features voice recognition technology to assist you in finding the Briggs & Stratton Authorized Dealers in your area.
