Removing the Starter on a Vanguard V-Twin Engine
How do I remove the starter on my Vanguard V-Twin engine?
This may be done by using a special universal socket. Use a 13 MM, 12 point, 1/4 drive universal socket (B & S Service Tool Universal Socket part number 19353) to remove the electric starter bolts. On newer Vanguard V-Twin engines (beginning with date code 00), it may be necessary to use a 12 MM instead of 13 MM socket.
