Yes I paid 46€ with the big cone, 3 in the club and 2 on 3s for 20/30cc petrol and one for a 55cc the third on the old 12v 7amp lead battery.
With my shoulders no way could I swing a prop on a petrol.
Ps, I fitted choke levers on all of mine.
PPs that's, Do*dogne,, it's where Brits go and buy a heap of rubble for £300.000 and drink themselves to death on red wine.

What did you do for a choke then after that
Quote from: FlyinBrian on July 23, 2020, 12:04:40 pmItsme, What starter are you using please. Re prop, it had an 18 x 8 wood prop which seems small???When its run in, sure. I use a Just Engines 24 volt geared starter, on two gel cell 12 volt batteries wired together. I use a charger designed for mobility scooters. The starter is not perfect, it can weld the contacts together and you need to dismantle the switch to fix it. Happened to me once, others a couple of times. It will start almost anything. I am using an 18x8 Master Airscrew black glass filled plastic.
I will be fitting a GF filled prop but do I stick with 18 x 8 or can it handle say 20 x 10 like my MVVS 40cc (on a tuned pipe)
