Can anyone tell me how or give me a link for directions on converting my torque starter from the aligator clips to a portable battery powered unit. I see people with 2 rechargable battery packs strapped to the bottom of the their starters....

thats the 'over the top' version.

basically, get 2 car packs, preferrably
7 cell, those rubber holders are made
by KSJ and are available from any
decent dealer. Get some bettter
connectors like Deans Ultra and/or Sermos and start soldering. The
packs just need to be wired in series
and if your charger can handle that
many cells, you can charge the 2 packs
at once.

Just tried my new dynatron starter with the same car packs I used along with my old starter. Turned the engine without any problems!

Bye bye start problems!!

Hi Noodles, how much was the Dynatron and where from? I had no end of problems trying to turn my Rossi 65 over last summer with a standard Sullivan, it may be the answer.

A place in southern Sweden, Kalmar RC Center
Send them a mail, I´m sure he sends one to you!
I paid 1100SEK ~ €120, not cheap , but it seems like well spent money!

A good example of the prices we have to pay up here compared to you lucky guys in the US!

Thanks, Noodles, I will check them out. I am going north in a couple of weeks and will be staying near one of the few shops that sell any model goods in Finland (Kärkkäinen in Ylivieska) - weird place, a giant supermarket that sells everything, including RC stuff! I will see if they have one there and if not...http://www.karkkainen.com/

Simple

The 2 battery wiring is simple. You can use solder or quality connectors.Cut the wires on the battery packs to the desired legnth. Connect the red wire of the 1st battery to the black wire of the second pack. That will leave 1 red and 1 black wire. Hook these up to the starter so that it spins in the proper direction. It's that simple.
