How To: Remove electric starter from Piston Ported 2 Stroke Engine.

This has been covered before by me but with photobucket holding what I post for ransom I decided it was easier to just make new threads using PBP's photo area......

Ok so you know right off the bat that the starter is indeed pressed onto the shaft and must be pressed off,,,not pryed off..Prying will bend or damage the crank.


You will need an M8 1.5 by 2 1/2" long metric bolt to get it off...The hex end will need a 14mm socket or boxend wrench...

Youll also need a way to stop the piston...I remove the sprkplug and lower the piston to BDC then I put rope into the sparkplug hole then roll the engine towards TDC til the piston stops......

Now you can remove the pawl bolt aswell as put pressure on the bolt used to pop the starter armature off the crank......

Remove the pawl bolt....

Thread the M8 1.5 x 2.5" long bolt into the armature center til it bottoms out to the crank....Once it bottoms out just give it a good turn or two to pop the armature free.........

Now you have two options...

1]
Gut the e-starter of the armature windings and the magnets and just use the armature center shaft aswell as magnet housing to keep the proper orientation of the pullstarter.....

The way you gut the windings from the armature is to put the armature in a vice then using a socket extension and a hammer drive the armature center through the armture...Heat from a plumbers torch makes it quicker aswell as easier........

2]
Eliminate the e-starter altogether....Thi s may require modification to the starter pawl aswell as definately needing a stud to spin the pawl onto....

I hope reviving and updating an old thread with viewable pictures helps members out.....
