I was watching the History chanel last week, and they showed a D-ring in intake cone. It was pulled like a lawn mower to start the starting motor.
Anyone ever hear of this before? Was it standard
on all modles, or just on certain types?

Hello,

this starting motor came to fame in post-war germany as a...

SUPER-GO-CART-ENGINE

It hat app. 10 PS and was very popular for every use you can think of, but is best remembered as a really good Go-Cart-Engine.

The famous german uber-carts were powered by these things, and Michael Schumacher used his knowledge about the Riedel-Anlasser (that was its name) to give advice to the Ferrari-engineering crew to boost their engines.


Cheers,

Brotrob
