Default starter adapter question

I just finished building my run-in bench for my 90sp. Now to get the adapter hooked up on my standard hobbico starter.

I take the cup off my starter to attach the adapter to the shaft and find it won't go on. On the starter shaft is a small pin (does not seem to be able to be removed) that fits in the bottom of the cup to provide additional support to spin the cup.

How is this to be done? The grubs in the adapter will squeeze onto the shaft threads which is not desireable because this pin will not allow the adapter to fully seat on the shaft.

The only thing I can see (maybe) is that the starter is not a "high torque" starter. Would that be a reason?

Hi

Sorry about that. The RCV starting adapter fits many starter motors but unfortunately not all.

As you posted a photo of your adapter, we should be able to send you an adapter you can use, by machining out space for the pin.

If you could email me your name and address - [email protected], I will pop one in the post for you

Best regards
Laurenne

Thanks. Email sent.

p.s.: about 2 1/2hr run time so far doing a flip start. Uncomfortable doing it this way but with a towel wrapped around my hand, it works for the most part. Certainly puts out a lot of power.

I find that if I stop running it (by running it too slow for example), I need to prime it before it will start again (again, on the first flip--wonderful for a new engine to do that :-) ). I attribute that to my starting method though.

venting oil is starting to lighten up too.

Love this engine.
