That's an idea Lorenz. Could one after fit a pull start mechanism to a 'standard' 4 stroke aero type engine....?

If the screw holes and the dia of the free wheel fits probably. I think this one is similar to the pull starter of my engine (it's a spare part). So I could messure when I'll dismantle it someday.

Made a mistake. It's bigger than mine. But there are much pull starter available. From other manufactors too.

Found this. But at a scarry price range (73-85). It's for a 2 stroke OS Max 32 FMX but maybe it fit's.

Silencing is easy. Use 15mm copper pipe and calm the exhaust gasses. Then shove it into as big an expansion box as you can get in and use a 3/16" final exhaust pipe.

I used mine in a Suburban N London garden and nobody complained so I think exhaust levels are objective.

If OS have withdrawn the pull start version use a big generator and use it also as a starter. I did that on my first loco, the Pilgrim Pioneer. I bought a car relay unit to start it as the current load is big. An onboard 12V battery pack is enough to turn the engine.

Anyway I have done it all this way and will do one more in a year or three. There are more ways than one to make these work.

Best of success.

Hi Carl

All I can do is help people when they get to do something that they do not know how to do. I worked out one way....there must be other ways too.
