Default Different Kind of Flywheels?

Are there different kinds of flywheels? Special ones for non-pullstart engines and special ones for pullstart engines?

For the most part yes. pullstart engines sit higher than non-pull engines, and so the engine mounts for non-pull engines can (and most always are) made to be lower. flywheels, whether they are on a pull start engine or not, are always made so that an starter box can start the engine (except in cases such as T-Maxx w/out starter box access). So the pullstart flywheels are bigger then standard flywheels. you could run a pullstart engine with a non-pull flywheel, but you could not use a starter box. using a pullstart flywheel on a non pull engine (with non-pull engine mounts) would cause the flywheel to contact the ground and therefore shut it off.
