Thanks, and it looks like if I swap brackets, it'll rotate it even farther out. Ok, if I'm converting to 12 volt starter, what about the choke. Can I also swap it out from the 57?

Out of curiosity, I looked at the 57 bracket and everything looked to match up. The only thing is the positive post is close to the cover.

And yes, the 57 spins up fine. Scared me just a bit to be honest.

Mike and Charlie are right, assuming you have the air silencer off to get in at the center bolt just above the carb.........i have pulled them with bracket in........you have to remove all the guts off the top of the starter, reach under to unbolt the starter housing bolts.........hold your tounge just the right way, it will squeeze out inbtween the bracket and pan..........like they said, once undone there is nothing holding that starter together........i put a couple nuts on the top after pulling........

Mike is right but be careful when you pull the long bolts out of the starter they like to brake off in the bracket and the old starter will fall apart when you pull those 2 bolts and the new one will 2

I think you remove bracket and starter together from motor and then two long screws go through the starter housing into the bottom of the bracket.

sorry Trey nope........the 6 volt and the 12 volt have 2 different bolting centers......i recall the 12v is about an1/8th bigger..........but you may be lucky........have a look at your bracket, if you have 4 threaded holes, one set is for 6 the other for 12........its a long shot......i needed a new bracket once and Dave had one, it had the 4 holes...........i never knew till i seen it...........
