    Has anyone mounted an electric starter onto one of the the popular Tanaka/Mitsubishi/Subaru engines?

    From one of these engines:


    Does anyone have this engine handy? I'd like to know if it has a longer crankshaft on the starter side, for the additional electric start housing and components.

    Does the engine block have mounting bosses for the electric starter?

    I'd like to know if anyone has retrofitted the electric start/pullstart asembly
    onto a popular subaru/mits/tanaka engine.
    Can it be done? If so, then buying the new $40 engine for the electric starter would be worth it.

    why not just run the $40 engine... I bought one and that is what I will do
    working on getting needed parts to use Estart but honestly it's not that hard to pull

    I'd rather use engines I have on the bikes, but with electric start.
