i know the clutch bell and rotostart will work but the CV-RX is the short shaft verson... we want the CV-R not the CV-RX

But see if you can get the OS 18TZ Turbo with Roto carb! 1.8hp and the OS CV-R makes 1.35 hp so you will feel a difrence!

Where is your sense of fun Dennis Unless you have done Mods from rotary to slide before you should pay close attention to what Clermont has to say [:-]

Like clermont said you need the 11J rotary carb. The slide will not work and if you get the one with the short shaft you can get the shaft extender that will change it to the sg shaft type. It screws right to the short shaft and makes it Sg. So the one you are bidding on will work.

No its not. CV-RX is PULLSTART. CV-R is standard version. CV-R(s) has short shaft, CV-RX(s) has short shaft... the (s) means short shaft.

Pullstart version WITH 11J rotary carb:
