Generac 5k Generator with Tecumseh 10hp engine (HM100-159412p) convert to electric start??

Hello All!  Newbie here.   I am interested in seeing if I can covert my Tecumseh 10hp engine (HM100-159412p) to electric start?
I am interested to see if any one has successfully and cheaply(relatively) done this conversion.  I got the ole girl pretty cheap so i can spend some money on it, but of course not to much..  Thanks for your Experience!!!!

    Welcome to the forum. By the time you scrounge a flywheel with a ring gear, a starter, battery, and all the bits and pieces you will likely to be into it for more than it is worth. You still won't have an onboard 12VDC output to keep the battery charged. Jost my 2 cents.

    Thanks for the Welcome!
       It looks like the cost to switch over would be less than 150.00.  and as the genny is convertible,  it is worth it to me!  I am hoping that someone knows what part numbers are for the flywheel. you know how amazon and ebay are with faulty numbers and generic misinformation!! thanks

    P/N 611093 Flywheel is no longer available. Look for a junked HMSK100 snowblower engine as a donor.
