Default Re: Super Rat -- does a pull start fit?

you dont need a complicated mechanism, all you need is a metal "cup" (dont know what they are actually called but I'll explain what they are). On engines with external flywheels, the pullstart mechanism is attached to the flywheel cover, but the "cup" part, which is what the pullstart mechanism actually turns, is attached to the flywheel itself. But you dont need a pullstart, all you need is a rope, wrap it around the cup and pull it, there you go. Just need to find or make a "cup" that can fit through the mag cover. you would obviously need to cut a hole in the mag cover for it, but it would have to be smaller than 3". I will find a link to an image of the "cup" part im referring to.
