Default Re: 18hp B&S - starter spins but wont engage

if it stops when the motor hits the compression stop then you have a weak starter

I replace the drive gear on my 20hp about every 6-9months the new plastic gears are really junky

There are two different arrangements on the Vanguard starter. One has a steel bendix gear and one plastic. There are also 2 different ring gears. Pull the starter and look at the ring gear, if you have a steel bendix and a plastic ring gear, you'll probably have to replace the ring gear. If you need a starter, they're cheap on ebay.
