hello bing--either get somebody else to flick it over ...or look for a sullivan 'high ' torque one i think used to be the description........or use a normal 12v (with a decent power supply to it)one you would use for a 2st------they will prob manage a 26cc petrol-no bother-watch your carol singer's in all this(finger's)...

Hi Bing, what I find people forget is to turn the Propellor back against the compression, then the starter has a bit of momentum when it hits compression the next time around. I only use a cheepo starter but mine's ok up to 90 size.
