I met a guy who took a starter/generator from a lawn tractor and mounted it on the rear of the tractor and ran a belt to the belt pulley. It not only started the tractor but kept the battery charged up.

All B's pre-1940 didn't have electrics. Don't know what year your's is, (you didn't mention) but you would have to change to a post-1940's torque tube that has the provision for the starter motor as far as I know... Someone else might have another way possibly.. Steve

You will have a hard time if you do not already have the spot for the starter. (1940 and up model) Mine is a 47 and u slide the starter in and to start it u push the button and it will catch on the flywheel and start it up. So without that hole it would be tough unless you cnahnged the towque tube like someone else entioned. If you do do that as well there will be no kill switch. What I plan to do mine is cut a hole in the magneto and runa wire up by the throttle rod so that it would ground out the magneto (not allowing a spark) Otherwise you have shut the gas flow off in the carb and let it run out of gas. Whcih can also be a good thing. Leaving gas in the carb isn't a great hting to do especially for a while.
