I have a 12 hp Gale, and the last time I was out, I had some trouble starting it. My little 12 ft. Tinny has a walnut shell paint job on the bottom. Very good for traction. Very bad for old knees. I had road rash on them for several weeks!
Is there any way to modify an old twin cylinder with a compression release? Or how about an electric start? I'd rather it be easier to pull!
(Yes, I could just kneel on an old towel, but a compression release would be more fun!)
