    Looks good.

    Better standback until you've run it a little.

    Enjoy,

    RE: My new 4.5 oz.flywheel

    It works great, we ran it up to 14000 rpm with no signs of fatigue ( the motor wont go any faster we ran a 12 in. prop on it)this is on a 33cc home lite chainsaw motor mounted to a huge Bud Nosen trainer we call Bertha, the magnets are 5 times stronger than the stock one and it fires at 300 rpm with a really hot spark even at 300 rpm. Hand starts so easy now I think a 5 year old could start it. It is quite the proces to build but worth every minute. Electronic ignition 4oz.=magneto ignition 4oz.+ electronic ignition battery and switch 4.5 oz = magneto flywheel 4.5 oz. To build this we used a cnc water jet , mill and lathe. This flywheel will work on all homelite and ryobi and any other motors with a 3.5 in. flywheel we will be making other sizes also.

    RE: My new 4.5 oz.flywheel

    please let me\us know price etc. soon as you know. i have a 45cc homie that could use a diet like that if its reasonable
    problem is i need some of the nose weight . but i like the hand start posibilities. does yours hand start because of the stronger magnets or is the timing different ?

    RE: My new 4.5 oz.flywheel

    bn120: That lite-weight flyeheel sure looks like a good idea. Are you going to make one for the G38 Zenoah engine. Thanks Capt,n

    RE: My new 4.5 oz.flywheel

    Would you make me one? I would like to try one on my Homelite conversions. If it works really well I would be interested in buying many of them from you.

    Please contact me. Go to www.bcmaengines.com for contact info.

    RE: My new 4.5 oz.flywheel

    You know...I think the light-weight flywheel is just the start. It is possible to make all the other components in a mag ignition lite also. It will end up being less weight than a battery powered ignition system. Super NEWS!!!!! Capt,n edit for spelling...lite or light?

    RE: My new 4.5 oz.flywheel

    I have a few questions ... Are you making them with the key part of the flywheel or cut to use a key? Will you be offering them as one off's or will they have to made in bulk? Any ideas on the price? Myself like all the others are VERY interested in the future of this thread and all its information.

    RE: My new 4.5 oz.flywheel

    ALW phantom these are all individually made from a blank so 1 offs are ok if you have a 3.5 in flywheel we can make it. If there is interest in another diameter of flywheel we will make them also. Tell me what diameter you guys want and what it fits and we will see if we can make other sizes also. The retial will be 69.99 shipped. The first 25 we will do 50.00 shipped, limit 1 per customer at that price,we are offering this discount to get some out there. Alot of time goes into each one of these and you will find it a cheap and simple alternative to electronic ignition. They will be ready in 2 weeks. I quit my jod and have been working on this for 2 months now and I am so excited to finally share it with all of you. Thank you for all of your interest it really inspires me alot. My wife said," are you crazy, who would want that"!!!! HEHEHE

    There is no key in them so you can set your timing anywhere you want.

    RE: My new 4.5 oz.flywheel

    With no key cut into the flywheel, how are you setting the timing? Also what will keep the flywheel from kicking out of alignment when an engine back fires?

    RE: My new 4.5 oz.flywheel

    Just my guess...a good fit and a little locktite. The timing will stay. You set time-ing just like you normally would...but it even better...you can advance or retard the timimg without cutting a new keyway. Good luck. Capt,n

    Yes captain is right, the fit of the taper will hold it, the keyway is just there for timing alignment at the factory.gyrohead you are on the list

    blackbaron you are 100 times more likely to throw a prop hub than a slipping mag.
