    What do you mean the alternator spins? Do you have spark? Squirt some gas into the carb throat to see if it fires. Try spinning the flywheel backwards, if it bounces back against compression that should be good.

    Actually it is not alternator but is a belt driven generator that is used as a starter motor. I only work on one these engines so I not of much help.
     
    Now the K301 that I worked was spec number 47138 so there may be other types of starting systems used.

    It would be quite old to have a starter generator, most I have seen were conventional gear drive starters. Is the engine not turning over at all or is it spinning but not starting?

    The decal on the shroud is probably worn off or painted over. It sounds like all you need is a starter drive.

    Looks like the kit is no longer available, you will have to scrounge a starter.
