if you put an electric clutch on the front one and the double pulley on the rear you can start one at a time and then engage the electric clutch to connect both engines. removing all doubt of hard starting. plus that also eliminates any issue of running only one engine to just mope around when you dont need to be guzzling the gas

Perhaps having one engine on an electric clutch is a do-able idea- it would allow you to start them up independantly and couple them when they reach operating temp.
You're late! LOL

I guess I should have read all the posts first. Lol. And 12hp fatties should be. Hort enough to run both facing forwards and run a cable off the throttle with a bracket clip. And run the exhaust together. It would help ot breath out better that way anyways

The cool thing would be starting one engine with the other... Very Happy

Fire the one engine up, turn on the ignition on the second one, and pop the E-clutch... Brum!

only thing im thinking is wouldn't the e clutch get burnt out? not just what you said, but like if each engine gets loaded differently, then slip, why couldn't you just get 2 wiring harnesses that the hot one that activates the silanodes combine em, and have them attached by a chain or belt they will engage at the same time and or start, like the one starter my be a second behind and slow for a sec then the other will engage, if you went chain you could make it so they fire at the same time like an opposed ot make em intermittent, but that might make for some hell of vibrations . like one fires, then the the ones on the dead stroke the other fires and so on
