This is the auto-start controller i am using.


2020-09-05: today i test-ran the engine, and ran a little above idle for 1.5hrs, for part of the 3hr break-in process. it ran great, right out of the box (after adding oil, and supplying a battery and fuel). i also have many of the other parts ordered in, so more to come...

2020-09-08: just some thoughts... i pulled the fan shroud off to look for a spot to mount the magnetic pickups. found some places to mount something on the oposite side from the starter. just gotta mount some angle-iron, and drill and tap it for the pickup threads. now, on the throttle, i think the best way is to dismount the governor, and run a throttle cable i ordered in from the front, through the fan shroud, with a idle return spring. the electronic governor i have will control the idle speed, so i may justturn the idle screw out to give the governor room to do it's thing. i really need to get a 1/4in steel plate so i can make the mounts for the engine. then i can also start mounting things like the governor actuator.
