Default OFNA Starter Box

I've got one of the older Ofna boxes with the big single motor in it. I've been looking for the metal 'bell' wheels and no one seems to stock them anymore.

Just an FYI, but I just ordered 2 of these - FAST54BW which look identical to those metal bell, rubber wheels. The motor in the FAST555 starter looks the same also, I think its the same starter as the old ofna. Gonna give it a try and I'll post here with an update when I get them.

They are in the EU but shipping was cheap so $33 bucks canadian total for 2 of them including shipping to me.

Peace.

Thatís GREAT news! I have an Ofna 10250 bump box myself that uses the same bell shaped bump wheel. I will bookmark the FT page as Iíll need a spare wheel sooner or later myself. Thanks for posting!

Default I ordered too

After a friend saw the post, I ordered 2 as well tonight, $23 shipped to NJ. I sure hope it fits and if so I'm stoked to get my backup box running and have a spare wheel!

Yeah, Iím gonna order a spare as well. The old Ofna boxes use the same motor as airplane starters do for engines up to 16cc or 1.0 cu. in. One reason you never see them available - theyíre incredibly torquey. They just happen to take the funky shaped wheel because the motor is so long.

Anyway, I look forward to hearing how they fit and work!!
