    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    I am thinking use the chrysler reduction starter, fit a sprocket where the drive was, use chain final reduction.
    Bike:
    Buell X1
    Honda S90 (box of parts)
    Honda CB750C (runs)
    The Others (mostly rolling wounded)

    My collar may be a little frayed, and maybe I need a shoeshine. But nobody\'s got a mortgage on my soul. I own it. Free and clear. -Phil Lovecraft

    Bump start was the plan when we first started this build when I was 24.

    I have some pressure relief valves to machine into the heads. he engine assembler balked at putting them in. I'm glad now he didn't because I lost a lot of confidence in him with all the issues he had assembling this motor. next year I'll pull the heads for porting and put the valves in then, should make bump starting a bunch easier.

    Charlie looked through his parts stash and found a 60-70s Chrysler starter and confirmed it is a counter rotating unit I can have. I'll see if it is an acceptable donor.

    No they won't. I have three starters under the bench that won't crank the Weslake. And none of them would crank a V twin. Probably all three together wouldn't crank Marc's twin. I'm cranking a 13:1 540cc single with 35 deg. fixed advance. It does it without any problem. 24v. might be a good idea for a V twin. Doc Z roller starters use two 6v. Ford starters off a 12v. battery. Great starter but big bucks.
    Don\'t cry because its over. Smile because it happened
