I used a window motor from a 99 Chevy. I got some info from Blt then went to installing. Here's what I ended up with.It works slicker than snot on a door knob.

I also built a heater to keep the carb from icing up I made it big enough to cover the governor linkage. [img]/club2/attach/Willy/DCP01792.JPG[/img]

Nice setup,thanks for the reply with pics.That's a nice idea on the carb heater.I have the shroud but not the factory muffler.It's like yours.Not sure if it will fit on there or not. I ordered a gearmotor off ebay tonite.It has a double shaft output so I'm thinking a pulley on each side to wind the cable on. http://www.ebay.com/itm/6-RPM-12-VOLT-DC-HIGH-TORQUE-INLINE-GEARMOTOR-5-1748-/270685929761?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f06238121
