Default Electric starter large cup

Who sells the large cup and rubber insert for electric starters for larger gas engines. My standard size is too small.

What size are you starting? I use the white cone for up to 43cc and have some that just have a prop-nut so I reverse it.

I'll also put in a good word for the neatest thing if you happen to have Makita 18v tools - A Finer Edge Mfg sells a "port" to power a starter. Works great!

I've already gone to the 18 volt drill power pack. My motor is a BME 44. The 1 1/2" Hub (not a nose cone) on the Otter I've built is just to large for the standard cone and rubber insert utilized by most of the starter manufactures Mine is the Thunder Tiger Powermaster Super 180. They (someone) sells a larger cup and insert I've seen them offered in magazines. I just can't remember who.

Yes they do and likely the only ones, Your question has already been asked in your almost duplicate post in this same forum. It was answered by Flyinwalinda and a link provided. Here it is agine:

I also provided pictures of my various starters using the Big Grip Millers in 2 and 3 inch size. If what you are talking about on your Otter 2 1/2 inch hub is simply a simulation nut or whatever of the Hamilton Standard oil dome then my Big Grip 3 inch is perfect for that. I think the Big Grips go all the way up to 5 inch.
