A novel and ingenious arrangement for starting the engine of the new pattern L.M.C. by means of the left footboard. Under the footboard a channel bracket is arranged, a ball bearing fitted to a short crank travelling along this channel. The dotted white line shows the extent of the movement of the footboard. One push down is enough to start the engine.
