Haven't seen one like this before.  Not a rare engine, just a really unusual prop & spring starter.

Ebay job.  Not planning on bidding personally.

It's an .060 used in the last version of the Comet Hornet.  The Hornet started out with a Cub 074, then the Comet Fox 07, and finally this Cub 060.  I'm not familiar with the details of this starter, but I'm fairly sure this was used with an external pushbutton.  This version of the Hornet was just on eBay.

John Krickel said this was the best small engine Herkimer ever made.

Comet mounted many engines using the beam mounts.  That's why you'll find Fox 07s and Cubs like this one with the oRare Cub?? Img_0511

Bill, is that actually a .059? My son bought that engine from Larry Scarinzi a few years ago. Larry didn't want to part with it. It always looked to me like something was missing on the front of the case and sure enough seeing the recoil starter it confirms what should be there. I bench run this engine all the time and I just enjoy running it. Ken

It's interesting the owner's manuals from that time, refer to it as a .058? Lol, so I guess you could call it a .060, .059 or .058!
