I built 2 of them for friends and the both had ofna bump boxes.

1 was the ofna chrome top OFN10253 and the other was the ofna OFN10244. They both worked fine

Any Buggy based starter box should do it.

Is your Engine new and the pinch is to tight? Get a heat gun

Or maybe your rubber starting wheel is to worn? get a new 1

Maybe your battery doesnt have the amps to turn the engine.

Good Luck


Maybe just put some hair around that hole and PUSH

See you Next Week

Default starter boxes

Hi there I just got my cobra gt built and noticed that the flywheel is only about a 32 mm vs 34 like on my ofna. My starter box just will not work on this car, which starter boxes are people using, I have a blue ofna box and like I said it just doesn't work. Any suggestions.
Thanks

I'm using the blue OFNA box too. Works fine, but I had to pull the motor out and check the alignment. Also have to have the piston BDC when cold.

Just to add to Triple 7 comment..........I've just been thru the same snag. I noticed the flywheel isn't in the centre of the bump hole (that doesn't sound right !), so I marked centre of fly wheel andf them lined the wheel on the box to it. I did take a grinder to bevel the edges of the hole in the chassis ( some one also posted that my wheel might be worn and too small)

Anyway, that cured my problem..............

Jacko

And yes, an Ofna box too.
