ALL shovels were originally electric start. Kick only wasn't even an option from the factory after 1964 as far as I know.

Also, while you may have a case from a 66-69 transmission, the main shaft has certainly been replaced with a long one to work with the longer sprocket shaft on the engine (made necessary by the addition of the alternator in 1970).

One more quick question. I see nine springs for the clutch plate, but there are twelve holes in the plate? Are three of the holes just not used? Sorry for the dumb question, but I want to learn as much as I can before I drop that kind of dough on something 馃
The clutch hub, if PROPERLY installed and torqued, really shouldn't take any extreme force to remove. It is relatively normal to have to use a lot of torque, and even tap the hub with a hammer, to get it to come loose, but that is because it is relatively normal for people to install them with impact guns and actually OVER torque them. On the springs, yes, BDL has 3 extra holes in the pressure plate that aren't used for springs. I suppose this gives one the option to install extra springs if they are making enough power from the motor to require more force on the clutch. I've never seen a street motor that made that much power though. One other thing, I'll second the recommendation on Rivera Primo parts over BDL as far as quality and reliability are concerned. Here are a couple of links to a belt drive and clutch that will work with your set up.
