Sounds like you are happy with them, I think I'll try one, seems like the design would work around pilot bushing issues, Thanks !

I don't know about THAT one in the pic, but we just get ours thru hubby's work (napa) but you can get automatic starters just about anywhere . They are stronger and don't seem to have as many problems. Several in here use autos instead of the regular ones~ so yeah, it's good~

LOL No worries, that was a handy picture, now that I know what it is I will get one locally and try one out, I like the Bosch starters , they are a little pricey but seem to hold up well.

Thats the only type starter I have run for the last 20 years.... came out of an autostick car, called a "self supporting" starter (for obvious reasons....)
Although I have some neat little pullers that will change the starter bushing by removing the starter and not the engine, It's still a PITA to do, so I just stick with those starters, I **THINK** it's called an SR17x...

Great! appreciate the input, I purchased a Bosch from the parts store, works great!
When I get aroung to pulling the motor I'll look into fixing the bushing. If and when I do! That starter is sweeeeeet!
Notched,I just looked at the Ebay listing for tha starter, Didn't realise it was a Hi tourque, Do you run it with a big CC motor?

Forget about the bushing, you have an auto starter in it, it runs, carry on~
