Hey Jim. If it's the honda/clone motor you're talking about you can still use the rope. Just wrap it around the starter cup, may take a few pulls but hey, beats walking. :scooter:

When I'm working on my Briggs Intek I use a Craftsman 15.6 volt cordless drill with an adapter 1/2" drive and a socket that fits the flywheel nut. Full charged battery and away I go. No need to pull a rope. Much much easier when troubleshooting an engine.

i have a genuine honda gx160. I just fabricated (more of a cut an extension in half and stuck it in my drill) a way for my drill to start it. I'll try the rope thing too, probably just make a holder on the bike(still looking for one) for a cordless drill.:smile:

Still need to find a home for the motor, what kit do you guys recommend.

thanks for all the help and fast responses:thumbsup:

You looking for a cordless? Got mine off Evilbay 15.6 volt with battery 10.00 plus 9.95 S/H. Had it now 2 years no problems. Has more then enough torque to turn thr motor over for a long time.

I bought a new recoil assembly at a lawnmower shop. They aren't that expensive. They are made out of plastic..amazing.
