I think the coolest part is that you still have the picture of yourself with the original, Derek.
Very nice & welcome to SFT. :)

could you please post pics of the starter hooked to the driveline

Great job there Derek. Unless I miss my guess, the original that your Dad built is Popular Mechanic's "Sidewalk Classic" from a 1960's issue. Am I right? Anyway, making one out of metal with such a faithful reproduction, is a pretty nifty feat.

Yes so true, I dont have the original mag, but had copies of it that my dad had made. Should last for a long time. Mine lasted for several years, and I hope this one will be around when im sitting in my rocker... lol

Thanks for the comments
