Our goal with the Power Starter was to make a power assisted engine starter that's simple, reliable, light weight, and affordable. The main improvement here, over other starters, is that the one-way bearing is in the driver on the drill. Once the engine is running, the one-way bearing is done doing its job. So the bearing is not constantly spinning with the flywheel, adding drag, getting dirty, and eventually burning up, like what sometimes happens with other starters. The Power Starter also weighs less than a stock rope pull starter. The Power Starter works on most side-facing 23cc to 34cc RC car engines.
We currently only sell the Power Starter without the driver. The driver is NOT included in this kit. The driver is made by Troy-Bilt, and is available at Lowe's Home Improvement stores, online Click here, and also on Amazon. This unique 5-sided driver has one-way bearings, and is what makes the whole kit affordable. It's usually available at your local Lowe's, in the weedeater parts aisle for $9. The driver is also sold under another brand name - Arnold. Remove the red rubber ring on the driver before use.
You will need an 18v, or higher, drill to start the engine. Your drill needs to have a 3/8" chuck and be able to spin at 1200 RPM, or higher. The faster, the better, especially on a big engine. DO NOT use an impact drill.
To install this kit you will need:
Piston Stopper, or clutch stopper
5mm allen wrench
