“The Stunt Starter”

Under current AMA rules, there is no reason at all to hand start an engine. However, most electric starters are heavy, bulky, and require a cord, which can be dangerous itself.

The answer is the KAVAN starter from Germany, This unit is lighter with battery pack than most starters without batteries. The planetary gears give great torque, and the unit easily starts stunt .60’s and .70 four-strokes. I wouldn’t do without one now!

I stock fuel tanks by GRW in sizes below.  I believe these to be the best quality metal tanks available.  Other sizes can be obtained but may require special order to the manufacturer.

VENTURIS - I usually have venturis on hand to fit the engines I work on, but I recommend you send the engine to me to be absolutely sure parts fit.  These are sold with O-ring-------------------$12.00 each.

.280 is a good size for .40's to .46's
.285 is a good size for .46's to .50's

Individual preference and power needs can vary, of course.  Always run the smallest venturi which gives adequate power.  It saves fuel and gives smoother engine runs.
