Default Re: Pull start engine

my 48cc engine from gasbike came with a dualstart and dual clutch. i have a centrifugal and a manual clutch and it can be pull or peddal started. but yeah its alot wider and first i mounted the engine high to clear peddals,then i switched my 8" crank peddals for 5" short crank peddals and lowered my engine,now my 5"short crank peddals clear my wide engine and my muffler.

one could also use wide 3-piece cranks and peddals but i didnt want to spend that kind of money when i found some short crank peddals from a exercise bike for $3.

the ropepull sticks out 1 1/2" one side and the cent clutch sticks out 1" on the other side,which makes the engine wider on both sides.
