So i got a kawasaki Mule 550 cant find the serial number so not sure what year it is. Previous owner put a new starter on it and traded it in when he couldn't get it to run. I was told it " leaked gas out of the carb." So after a new carb, valve adjustment new plug the crazy thing wouldn't hit a lick and indeed it would blow all the misted fuel out the carb inlet. I had about 145 psi compression so valves were ok. After a few days i finally realized the previous owner had put a newer model starter on it and the motor was turning backwards. So i took my dewalt drill and 15/16th socket and turned the motor ccw looking at the flywheel and she started right up!!!

So I'm looking for a starter that turns cw(looking from the pinion gear end) which in turn will turn my motor ccw. I think the spiral on the shaft and bendix/pinion would prevent it being reversed somehow. Anyone have a cw rotating starter?
