I hate to keep bothering Dave back at Awesome Henry but I'm running into questions. Has anyone built one of these that I can email with?

I'm thinking I have to use the original flywheel from the tractor, it looks like it will bolt on to the crank of the flathead.

The starter off the flathead does not match up to the Awesome adapter ring, so I'm guessing I need a tractor starter but 12 volt.

When I first assembled the flathead to the tractor for fitment the clutch was a little more than an inch away from the pressure plate, is the tractor flywheel thicker maybe an 1 1/4 or more thick?

And I'm sure there's more I just haven't got to that point yet.

Any help is greatly appreciated. You can email me direct at
