Alan, the flywheel assembly will fit. You also need to change the magneto coil plate to a notched one to clear the Bendix drive on the starter.

Hope this helps.

I would like to develop an external starter that would use the front pulley the hand crank uses to start the car Cut off the crank and square the end. Something like they use to start Indy Cars. Battery could be stored on board and starter plugged in to high amp plug mounted up front.
No engine modifications needed. This has to be possible.

Bob,

Eveready had it. It was a dyno-starter.

Don't forget the hoghead and change the clutch pedal.

Thanks. That is interesting. Must have been one stout motor. I also have seen one that was essentially a wind up spring affair.
