What Starter Do I Need

I bought a Craftsman Lawn Mower that didn't have a starter. The Brigg & Straton site says that with an aluminum ring gear which the mower has, it requires either 693054 (3 5/8" length) or 499521 (4 3/8" length). Which one do I need or does it matter? The mounting hole spacing is 2 1/4" apart.

Craftsman 12.5HP, 42 inch
Model: 286707
Type: 0420-01
Code: 91011011

Hello Terry!

Either is fine. The shorter starter will be cheaper. The longer one seems to have more torque, but you'll never benefit from that on a small 12.5hp engine anyway.
