Default Re: Removing pedals off motorised bike and adding pull start

I never thought about stuffing the cylinder with rope, but it would work...
I usually just use a wide flat tip screwdriver in between the bevel and clutch gear to lock the crank if a bolt or nut is too tight to break loose and my 18 volt impact driver isn't handy... Usualy the impact wrench will do the trick every time without locking the crank. You can usually break loose the nut by putting a wrench on the nut and hitting it sharply with a small hammer if an impact wrench isn't available....
There is a big "If ya know what you're doing" disclaimer for this one...
