    You broke anyway so you might as well get the starter. It just finishes of the plane. You cannot go cheap now.

    Is the Kolm the same as the Valach in you have to order the one for a starter, the front end is different for a starter. I am sure you conversed with Gotz about that as well as the long and short version.

    stangflyer I like 'em "BIG"!

    Yeah, no way out now. Lol

    Honestly I do not know. I did not get the chance to talk to him. Only his wife. She said she would have him call me back. However, my understanding is he just got back from surgery. So I am sure it will take him a while to get caught up. He was on the line to Germany when I called. If I remember correctly though, there is a difference in the case. So I will wait to talk to him before I make the call of with starter or without. Only thing is, I may have to wait if I get the one with the starter. My understanding is the motors are custom built and could be at least six weeks. Oh well, waited this long right? Either way, a Kolm will be on its way.

    It all depends on what you want. The added cool factor of a starter as if the engine is not enough, or "just" a really cool engine that starts extremely easy by hand. As if these engines were in the "just" category.

    Ah so, you also some funny guy! laughing-smiley-face.gif
    Wealthy? Me? Yeah....not so much. I have to work way too many long hours to be able to pull things like this off. But my advantage is this. I have no "female" telling me what I can and can not buy or jacking my cash before I can spend it. I have no bills other than my addiction. LOL. My kids are raised and have made a way for themselves. My little "Chi-waa-waa" (Chihuahua) doesn't mind eating dog food. LOL. And finally... Money is one of those things that can either lead a man to evil or lead him to happiness. I may not be able to take all my red heads with me when I check out. But darn it all, I am going to have a little fun and happiness before I actually do. Ya know? LOL.
