thanks for the pic. now i see whats missing didn't have any idea if it was missing anything or not. just picked it up somewhere and thought it was interesting. what size tecumseh do they fit? can't beleive you can get parts for it. what do i ask for, just hegar kick start parts. i got acouple tecumseh engines 3 and 5 hp have to see if it fits one of them. thanks again.
There is no "guts" or gears...it's just a handle slid over the stock Briggs ball bearing ratchet mechanism. The bracket is acting as outboard support.
The problem I see with it is it is 1:1...at best you are getting 1/2 turn when you kick it so you better have a motor that starts really easy. Most commercially built kick starters are built with a gear train that multiplies the output.
here is something to think about too. thats if you have the room for it. i think this would be ok on a vintage style scooter build where the engine and drive train would be covered up and you needed someway of starting it without electric start.
