I have a generator with a Briggs & Stratton model 190412 type 3098 code 0190012010 wondering if it would be easy to convert it to electric start. What would I need to do it?

It can be done, first thing see if the block is tapped to accept a starter if it is, then u need a flywheel with a ring gear on it, some generators are set up to put gear drive starter, so might have block tapped and ring gear on flywheel.

Many Briggs&Strattens used a "Starter-Generator"
You'd need a Starter-generator, a pully to go on
the engine, and a mounting bracket. if you can find a place that scraps old garden tractors or
mowers..many older models using Briggs,or
Wisconsins had them..they used the same starter-
generator.For information go to the web site: click on "Parts".Click on
"Accessories", go to section 4-belt generators.
Scroll to page 90, which has a picture, a wireing
diagram, and a description. New starter-generators are still
available, as are the regulators, but cost in the
$200 range.

The one experience I had converting a Briggs engine to electric start was a PIA. Actually I did not convert it I had a 5hp that had a bad block and finding the right block to move the electric start system to was the PIA. The block itself was different,of course the flywheel is different and on this engine the crankshaft was longer to handle the different flywheel.
