Add Electric Start to 1913 Overland


Recommended Posts

I have a 1913 that I am thinking about adding a flat belt to the flywheel, with a tensioner, and a starter generator. This can all be removed later to keep the authenicity.....can any one help me with the sizing of the starter?

will a lawn tractor starter have enough torque?

Considering that the lawn tractor starter-generator is designed to be used with a flywheel pulley that is about 10" in diameter, and the flywheel on your Overland is probably at least twice that, the torque should be sufficient. Of course, there's one sure way to find out.
