Electric Start Drive Kit For 1970-1978 Harley-Davidson Shovelhead

bdlshovelheadThe Harley Shovelhead remain a mainstay for custom builders. Belt Drives LTD offers a belt drive conversion providing extended life, strength, smooth operation and reliability to these classic drivelines. It’s a complete “Shovel Shorty” Electric Start drive kit for 1970-1978 machines with ratchet top transmissions only.

The conversion requires the use of a 1989-2006 style starter motor, which eliminates the old technology starter solenoid. Removes the need for the solenoid battery cable, so no more slow cranking, and weak kick backs. The unique drive features a billet rear plate that covers the transmission drive while providing support for the clutch basket assembly.

Each kit is supplied with front and rear pulleys, BDL’s Kevlar clutch and a 2”, 140 tooth belt. The rear plate/support is made up of the plate, BDL’s mini starter housing, pinion gear and starter ring gear guard. Benefits of this unique drive system to the Shovelhead driveline are obvious and substantial. MSRP $1000.84. Belt Drives LTD 714-693-1313

    Do they make an engine pulley with the correct offset so this could be used on a Panhead coupled with a 70-84 tranny? If not why not?
