I've done this on a 30hp and it was staightforward. You need the starter motor and any associated mounting brackets, a flywheel with a starter ring and a solenoid.

Obviously you'll need a battery and wiring also.....but you knew that already. The engine may have a charging capability. It could be as simple as a lighting circuit.
