Ford Bronco Starter Motor to 2 Cylinder Gas Engine
I matched up a Ford Bronco starter motor to a hand-cranked Wisconsin 2-Cyl. gas engine which drives a V-4 air compressor. The engine was hard to start because it belt drives the air compressor with no clutch between them. Now I can easily start engine and compressor together.
I first removed the crank handle from the motor flywheel and attached a torque converter ring gear (it matches the starter motor) to the flywheel with short bolts. The starter mounts on a metal bracket at the base of the motor and is driven by a 12-volt battery. I put the crank handle adapter back on the flywheel so I can still start by hand, if necessary.
