    I like the "Thanks, Honey" pat at the very end.

    I have a little Deutz T-216 gas turbine, and this is exactly how you start that thing too. The Peashooter has a much larger engine, but it's still neat to see a similar starter on a different piece of equipment.

    What is it that he cranks up that acts as the starter?

    I have always wondered myself. Best I can figure is it is turning a flywheel to store up enough energy to then transfer to the crank to overcome the compression. It seems like this would be a heavy assembly though. If I am wrong, someone please let me know.
