Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
The starter is actually an assembly with a motor and a solenoid. The solenoid does two things: it closes a contact to send electricity to the motor, but it also moves a gear on the motor shaft upward to engage a gear on the engine flywheel. Most likely, you will have to replace the starter assembly to fix this.
Just in case, you should also check the gear on the engine flywheel. It's where the starter pinion engages. If it's missing several teeth, you could just be in that 'dead spot'. That can temporarily be solved by turning the motor a little bit to get to a good spot - but remove the sparkplugs first! And eventually you'll end up in the dead spot again. It is a more expensive repair.
Good luck! Please rate if you find this helpful, thanks!
