My father has given me our old riding tractor. The belt didnt fit anymore becuase i changed the size of the pully on the axel. I didnt want to spend the money on the belt so i moved the axle fowards to fit some old belt we had laying around. Now my problem is, i know the motor runs, but when i go to start it, it takes a long time to start. The thing is, cant use the battery, the one that used to be on it wont hold a charge, and i use the one from our new mower, well after running my dads new one down to the point were it wouldnt charge agian, my dad wont let me use the battery anymore. So i wanted to know if it was possible to somehow fab up a pull starter for a 12hp ohv, verticle shaft motor. Any suggestions would be great.
