can later model dr350 auto compression be added to a 90?

Recommended Posts

If not the manual lever is ok but if there is a way to take it out of the start up steps it would better I think.

The decompression lever is only used to position the crankshaft for a proper kick through the compression stroke. After the lever pops out it does nothing at all. Even with the automatic compression release you would still have to find the right spot before kicking so it really isn't an answer to your concern. The automatic compression release was added to make the job of the electric starter easier. But, to answer your question it is possible to retrofit a late model head to an earlier engine but it would be quite expensive and you would gain very little on a kick start engine.

Your 90 a metal tank? Only reason I ask is, my 91 had a metal tag that says it was made in 1990. Vin shows 91

Don't let Monday ruin your Sunday!

Mine has a metal tank and the vin plate says 01/90. I am wondering if I have the world's oldest surviving dr350s?
