Never heard of it but I don't think that it will crank over a .90 . For firing up most OB's it should be OK but when trying to turn over a big-block, you'd better have a good starter with 24 volts.

I have never heard of that either. Most people usually use 12volt lead acid or similar type batteries (car batteries) for starters Size doesn't matter, just chemistry to provide the needed amperage these starters demand.
Turning over a .90 is a hard task for the cheaper starters. Most of them say they are able to start a 0-.90 size engine, but I find they have trouble with a brand new .60-.90 even @ 24volts.

For my 11cc and 13cc motors I use a 24v starter. It may be possible to start the larger motors with a 12v, but will most likly need to loosen the plug a turn or two to do so. I've heard of folks using a 12v starter on 24v, just need to limit the time the "on" button is pressed.

The trick is to use a good strong battery and loosen the glow plug a few turns. Once the engine starts, tighten the plug. Be ready with the plug wrench when you remove the "glow driver" otherwise the plug will unwind itself and blow out.
