    Is there a electric starter for happytime motors?I search the forums but found nothing.I could make one out of a drill to begin with. I could just adapt a drill bit to a socket but my end goal would be to take a pull start and fit a starter system with in the housing of the pull starter.

    there's not one commercially available. the common method is to have an electric front hub motor that you run until you're moving quick enough to dump the clutch

    thank you for the help. I need to be able to turn the engine over while clutched and standing still. i have a pull start but that isn't continuous and broke too easy. any and all ideas welcome to help this plan along.

    you can replace the cord on the pull start with a stronger one
