What the yank eliminator does is exactly what your ez-start does...it spins your crankshaft so your engine will start...all it does is use an electril drill instead of the electric motor on the easy start. I think your better off with the ez-start...cause you wont have to lug around a huge starter box or a glow igniter with your protable drill...just think...

i had an ez-start and now i'm using the yank eliminator. it works just as well, if not better and it won't break like my ez-start did. it also gets rid of all extra on bord stuff that weights you down. it's $30 but it's well worth it.

For you guys that want to use a yank eleminator this is the hot set-up. Get a ram igniter from tower, part# ramp1350 it is 41.99 flip a switch and it fires your plug and stays warm at idle, and when the throttle is applied it switches off. you will need a y harness with a charging jack to install this unit. It works like a champ, and you dont need to carry around anything but your small cordless drill.

I used a yank eliminator for a while, but CAUTION!!! the bushing around the crank WILL wear out and cause your engine to not run unless the shaft is supported by the yank eliminator. In other words, once you remove the yank eleminator, the engine will immediatley quit. To prevent this, you can do one of two things: make a shield of lexan or other suitable material that will keep dirt out of the base of the shaft, or you can install 2 bearings in the back plate. You can use shielded bearings, but if you use sealed bearings, IT WILL NOT WORK because the pressure in the crankcase has nowhere to vent. Trust me on this one or you can call tech support and they can tell you the same thing
