I think this is going to be like an automotive starter.
You will need to check 3 things.
The ring gear where the starter gear cranks the engine, the starter gear that engages the ring gear, and the overrunning clutch or bendix , which is the springy part that kicks the drive gear into the ring gear.
When you remove the starter from the engine, you will see the drive gear on the end of the starter that was inside the motor.
The drive gear is about the diameter of a half dollar or a silver dollar. it should not be chewed up, it should look like a good gear. Inside the place where the starter attaches, you should see a ring gear, with a flashlight, and those teeth should look good and not chewed up.
On the starter you removed, behind the drive gear and usually inside the starter is the bendix or overrunning clutch , which will push the drive gear into the ring gear when you crank the starter. These parts often fail every few years.
Some people fix them, most people replace the whole starter.
Be blessed.

SOURCE: I have a Toro Z14-38

There is very little likelyhood that you will be able to get the manual that you want.
First TORO has proprietary information on their products.
Second is the fact that you are agreeing to only pay 4 dollars for something like that.

The only other thing that you can do is look in the US patents database to see what you can find.

Kawasaki starter not engaging


Hi, Ricky the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

Behind starter fly wheel only moves back not forward wil not start not start starter seems like its working spins


Disconnect the battery and then carefully remove the starter. Take the unit to a local auto parts dealer for a bench test. Starters have two separate functions, one spins the shaft to crank the engine, the other is called a bendix, which pushes the starter gear out to engage the flywheel, and then after the engine engages, retracts it (except in the case of starter/generator combo units which recharge your battery and power your vehicle's electricals while the engine is running) Always best to get a bench test rather than depending on apparent symptoms.

Timecutter PTO clutch switch clicks when I engage the switch but will not engage the belts


Check under the deck and make sure the blades can spin freely, there will be resistance but mostly check to see if they are stuck. If they are not and can move, yiu can try to remove the belt from the pto, engage and see if it spins then. If it does not than there is probably an issue with pto clutch
