Starting Systems

Originaly the WR27-1 was started via a hydraulic motor. When I acquired mine the hydraulic motor had been sawn in half to use the bottom half (with spline) as an adaptor for an electric motor.

I built an electric motor based system which worked for about a dozen starts and then blew up.

Next, I acquired a NOS hydraulic motor off a contact in the states and am building a hydraulic starting cart for the engine.
