Wow, I think I just worked out why government debt is so high. in a couple of the photos there are some complete generator sets shown up on the top shelves, wonder what they want for them.

Looks like there's no flywheel, might well be problematic......

Might be hard to find a flywheel with a starter ring for one of these but there has to be one among that huge heap of engines in the background.

That was my first thought, I then went on to suppose that all the others needed theirs and that the one offered for sale had been robbed of the flywheel (and starter ring) to get a better motor running, for some undisclosed purpose.

maybe there's a weakness in the starter rings for this model?

Hi Stef, you may be right however it looks like they get a lot of engines through the place, they can`t all be good. I suspect they have a very nice collection of spare parts that they will be only too happy to part with for the right price.
