I have an older log splitter with a cast iron Model 23A

Customer Question

I have an older log splitter with a cast iron Model 23A Briggs & Stratton engine on it.
I want to test it, trouble shoot, and possibly repair and upgrade. Can you suggest a good book or Factory Service Manual for this engine? Also, can the engine be modified to incorporate electric starting?
Many thanks

here is the manual I have , which covers the out of production engines. You can look for a cheaper one. But I'm afraid there is no factory way to convert to electric start.
