Default Reuhl Hydroplane Flywheel

I have a NIB Reuhl hydroplane from my father's collection but I need a flywheel..................or the dimensions for it. I can have one made if I have to. Thanks.

Can you post a picture of the engine? I know nothing about tether boats but usually the flywheel is part of a glow engine. Is there an engine that comes with the kit or added seperately?

The engine is the recommended Ohlsson .23 Ignition engine. The box for the flywheel is in the kit but no flywheel.

Wow pretty nice, like I said sorry I know nothing about these engines, there seem to be a lot of parts on ebay but I couldn't find any that looked like a flywheel with collet for a marine engine.
How is the drive shaft supposed to attach to the flywheel, a cable clamp or a u-joint setup? Are you going to use an electric starter instead of the pull string? Then you just need a groove in the flywheel for the starting belt and your collet attached to that. I'm not much help but it's a cool project, if you need some collet ideas to attach the driveline I can point you to what's available.
