replacing starter clutch on tiller

We have a 5hp tiller with a Briggs& Stratton motor - model # 130292. We believe we need to replace the starter clutch.
somewhere yesterday, there was a page with parts lists and breakdown for particular models. I haven't been able to relocate that site again.
What tools and procedure for removing the starter clutch? Is the part interchangable , since this tiller is pretty old? We hsave another tiller with other problems and were thinking of removing the starter clutch from the other and using it. The model number on the other is #130202, also Briggs& Stratton.
Any suggestions? Thankyou

The clutch just unscrews. Hold the flywheel with a strapwrench and loosen the clutch with a big pair of channel locks. Tighten the new one very tight, or the flywheel key will shear when you crank up the engine. You might just have to take the old clutch apart and clean it well. The steel balls in it usually just get stuck in the rust and gunk that builds up in the cup.
