Tecumseh 15 hp single cyclinder starter

Tried to start my Bolens 1556 (made in 1972) with 15 HP tecumseh. The starter barely turned over and got hot enough to send up a wisp of smoke. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for any help/input.

    No. A motor rewinder, if you could find one that would tackle it, would need the original factory specs which were proprietary information and as such never published. Oregon or somebody else may have an aftermarket replacement, the vendor would need the model and spec number from the engine.
