Heck of a deal for that money. You have one of the blue ones, curious if they have an electric starter option? I don't see where they say either way on that.

If someone is looking at this, be sure to note that this is a single shaft motor, if you have a 2 shaft tecumseh it won't be a direct sway because the 2 shafts rotate opposite each other. For the right chassis, it looks like a good option. I know it's probably a Chinese motor, but then again what isn't now days?

The blue 6.5HP Greyhound has no electric start or stator coil.
The blue 11 HP Greyhound has both.

The black 6.5HP Predator has neither I think.

How hard are they to start in the cold?

Mine starts fine in the cold, but I had to open the jets slightly as mine was running lean. It would start fine, but surge a bit.

Also, mine is stored in a garage so it isn't super cold.

Also we have had nearly no snow, so only used it briefly a couple times.
