Default John Deere LUC starter

How much of a problem would it be to adapt a John Deere M starter to an Luc power unit? They seem to be easier to find than the LUC starters. Thanks in advance, Ron

They look very similar and in fact most parts are identical. I think something about the drive end casting is the reason they aren't directly interchangable but don't have both to compare at the moment. Good luck.

If you want to put a starter on an LUC you may need to get a different flywheel. I went through an LUC completely and the flywheel did not have the starter gear teeth on it so I was not able to put in a starter. If I remember right you will have to drill a hole for the set screw because the cast does not have holes for a starter, just the end cap. Hope this helps.
