    anyone ever converted a 25hp electric to a pull start? if so how hard is it to pull? i have only owned smaller pull starts (5, 7.5, 9hp) but would love to switch over my electric to a pull providing i dont have to be a bodybuilder to do it and can find the parts cheap or for trade.

    I have both kinds manual and electric in 25 hp. I crank both by pulling. I'm 71 yrs old. Not much to it.

    The secret to easy starting is a properly tuned engine. Keep the engine tuned and it's easy to start. A 3 1/2 hp lawnmower will wear you out if not properly tuned.
