I will post pics of the 2 covers in the morning when I get to the shop... if you can build one then I would like to help you design it then you could build me one at the same time... I'm sure others would buy if you can make it look factory and easy to install on the engine without needing to modify the mag rotor etc... keeping the cost reasonable wont be easy tho...
I'd love help designing it. I don't have access to more expensive machining equipment like lathes, milling machines, etc. but I do have all of the tools that I hope making it will require. I was hoping there might be a way to modify a traditional pull start to fit (I have one coming this week in the mail) Thoughts?
