ALWAYS FIT ANY SPACERS BEFORE TAKING MEASUREMENTS
a)
Check that the starter is of correct rotation for the engine: ‘SZH2S’ starter
rotates clockwise and ‘SZH2R’ starter anti-clockwise, when viewed from the
pinion end.
b)
Before installing the starter on the engine, ensure the starter pinion to
flywheel ring-gear clearance, dimension ‘C’ is correct for the application. This
check will require the use of the card-gauge supplied with the starter (Pub No.
A079).

3)
Measure dimension ‘A’ - Flywheel ring-gear to engine mounting flange.
Measure dimension ‘B’ - Starter pinion to starter mounting flange.
Dimension ‘C’ is determined as: ‘C’= ‘A’-‘B’
Dimension ‘C’ should be 2.5 to 5 mm, See Fig.1. above.
c)
Check that pinion can extend 20mm from rest position and does not foul the
flywheel.
d)
On some engine installations in which a starter is to replace an electric starter, the spring starter body may be larger
than that of the electric starter. This may create a foul condition with the engine crankcase, thus requiring
displacement of the starter centreline by the use of an offset mounting spigot and fixing holes. The Spring Starter will
also be specified with a larger diameter pinion, with a greater number of teeth, than the original starter.
Install the starter on the engine
e)
After installation check that the pinion in the ‘at rest’ position does not engage with the ring gear by operating the
trip lever and turning the handle several times - the engine must not move.
Then ensure that the pinion correctly engages the flywheel ring gear by carrying out the following instructions:-
1)
2)
3)
4)
Press the Re-set button.
Rotate the winding handle THREE TURNS
Operate the trip lever
Continue turning the winding handle. If the engine turns freely for a full rotation, engagement is correct. Stop turning
the winding handle and press the re-set button.
(It may take several attempts for the above to work)
The starter may now be operated as normal but only under a minimal load for the initial operations, gradually
increasing the load as the action continues. If all is operating satisfactorily, proceed to instruction (g).
If, after several attempts, the engine does not turn when the winding handle is rotated, the starter pinion has not
engaged with the flywheel ring gear. Proceed as instruction (f).
f)
Ensure that instructions (b) and (c) have been carried out correctly. Particular attention should be paid to any spacers
originally fitted between the electric starter mounting face and the flywheel housing. It may be necessary to remove
or add spacers to achieve the required 2.5 to 5 mm pinion-to-flywheel clearance. (‘C’ dimension, Fig.1 ).
If the starter now engages, proceed to instruction (g). If it does not, there may be a fault in the starter in which case
you should contact your local Kineteco Distributor.
g)
Stick the operating instruction label on the equipment so that it is easily visible when using the starter.

SZH2 Heavy duty Spring Starter Operator’s Instructions
Please read carefully
CAUTION: This model of the starter is heavy. Handle with great care.
TO START THE ENGINE
a)
Ensure that engine and machinery are safely prepared for starting.
b)
Check that the fuel tap is in the ‘on’ position, and that sufficient fuel is in the tank.
c)
Position the throttle as per the Engine Operators Manual instructions for starting.
Most engines require at least a 3/4 open position.
d)
Press the reset button.
e)
Using the handle, wind the starter clockwise to the required power output.
The maximum number of turns is 39. For most engines 33-36 turns of the handle
should prove sufficient. NOTE: Over winding will reduce the life of the starter.
f)
REMOVE THE HANDLE FROM THE STARTER. The starter must NEVER be tripped
with the winding handle in place.
g)
OPERATE THE MANUAL FUEL LIFT PUMP (if fitted) to ensure good fuel supply to
the engine
h)
Operate the trip lever.
i)
Adjust the throttle to the desired level.
CAUTION: Never leave the Spring Starter part-wound.
NOTE: It is possible to unwind the starter, should the need occur, by turning the handle
anticlockwise . Additional force will be required to overcome the initial friction.
NOTE: If engine does not start first time, allow it to come to a complete rest before
retrying.
