    Not unless you're a machinist. Or a masochist. Or both. The engine crankcase isn't machined to accept a starter motor and the flywheel doesn't have a ring gear.

      at one time they sold a starter/generator for small motors that would run off a pulley, I have on on a old Kohler engine
      (one would have to attach a pulley to the fly wheel), one source my guess is there not cheap Starter-Generators, Small Engine,

      At one time Briggs sold a unit called "spin start" that used a cone that attached to the fly wheel nut, or replaced it and then the drill was chucked with a rubber cone that matched but one would press the drill into the revers cone and start the motor with a drill, (I do not know if a 18 volt cordless would do it or not), I do not think it is being sold any more,
