    electric start backplate

    hey i was just wondering if it is possible to start a a vx18 engine that has the electric start backplate with a dremmel style rotary tool, i need a new backplate and its cheaper to get the rotostart back then the pull start so it would be kool if i could start it with my rotarty tool, just wondering THANKS

    I bet it would, althought the dremel tools don't really have torque they have speed.

    RE: electric start backplate

    yeah I doubt the dremel would have the torque or speed to turn the motor over quickly enough. I could be wrong though.

    Supprising actually the more I think about it because my rotostart doesn't appear to offer a whole lot of torque either.

    RE: electric start backplate

    well i could always just use mydewall 18volt drill with a bit on the end if my dremmel doesnt work, but how cool would it be if my dremmel works, that thing will get to spend even more time with me

    RE: electric start backplate

    I know my SH 28 needs to be turned counterclockiwise with the the rotostart, dremels dont usually offer reverse.
