Just about any left hand start reed valve starter will work .Some have a slightly longer axle assembley ,can't remember which though.

The starter on this 105 which basically would be the same as a 125 came from a 250 .

Al, I was looking at Acres and the 125's today and saw the pictures of your chainsaws at the base of the Super Pro 125 and Super Pro 125C subjects.

Great Saws. Fantastic, but I have a nice Stihl 084 that I rarely use. So if I had a 125 it would be a shelf queen too?

I had a new 250 bow saw at one time in the mid 70's, it was just to big for my needs at the time. My yard had no trees of any size and my acreage had been all timbered out. Beautiful chainsaw though. I remember it just wearing me out for I couldn't let it rest on the small wood.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

Funny you should mention a 250 with a bow .I've mention many a time my cousin and myself spending the winter week ends cutting literally  thousands  of osage orange fence posts in the early 60's .

It was on my grandmothers farm which had nearly two miles of depth to it although it wasn't very wide .In one winter we might get maybe a quarter of a mile so it was never ending job .The entire farm had the outside fence rows in osage which she sold the posts and heated her house with .It was with a brand new at the time 250 with a bow .

I'm thinking we did it about 3 years when we were teenagers  .

Na the fan housing is narrower than the SP125 Housing plus the starter engagement dog is of a different length otherwise the starters will interchange
I am a idiot so my pics disappeared.

Basically all the SP125'S were all the same except the SP125c and fitted with chainbrake as standard equipment .......... the SP105 had a chrome bore as well so it's rightful tag should have read SP105C and the SP105C never got a chainbrake

I have an old SP105C cylinder here that was seized and shows the torn chrome in the bore
I am a idiot so my pics disappeared.
