Default Re: Happy Time Electric Starter/Generator Question...


Well, I was thinking about adapting a starter/generator designed for another 2-cycle engine to work on mine. Just a matter of machine work. I figured since this type of setup is already being used for the other motor there would be no issues like the ones you discussed. One being that the starter is attached to the same shaft as the crank. Other vehicles with starters use a gear reduction system which would definately pose a problem with what I am thinking.

I'm goig to try anyway. The worst that could happen is that I blow $50.00 for the motor and time used to make parts.

Thanks for the feedback as it gives me foresight in what problems that may occur.
