listeroid electric start

Here is the electric start system that I built for my Listeroid 6/1 backup generator. It’s a real lifesaver during these cold Wisconsin winters.  In this particular video, its not very cold, but it gives you an idea of how easy it is to start. Ive noticed that I absolutely need to use the glowplug if its 0 degrees F or below. It cranks fine, but it will not start without it. Ill have to make some more videos of this system when its a bit warmer I think. The fuel system and a few safety features have already been updated, so this video is a bit out of date although its still fun to watch.
