No to your question. Years ago, JC whitney sold a belt that you wrapped around the generator pulley to pull start a 36 hp air cooled VW engine.

Not really needed if you are a real cheapskate like me. Starter quit me on my VW microbus once far away in the big city. Blocked the front left tire both front and back, jacked up the right rear and wrapped it with my tow rope. Put it in 4th, pumped the gas 5 times and turned on the ignition. Pulled the rope and away she went. Drove straight home though, was not something I wanted to make a habit of doing.

I saw that many years ago.. gave me the idea to use on off an old lawn mower engine I think it came off an old Clinton motor .. had the center drilled to fit the gen shaft on my VW and used the nut on original pulley .. It was during the gas shortage in the 70's everyone teased me about my Briggs $& Stratton VW.. but it worked with a rope. LOL

Might be handy to just have around, probably couldn't find it when I need it though!
