I believe I heard once that there was a conversion kit available, but I don't how much it cost (I'll guess $1000), and I have no idea if it was even true.

Nothing from a WR450 e-start system will fit the 426, and making it fit would be most practical by swapping in a complete WR450 engine. But why? At some point it simply makes more sense to just go and buy a WR450 and be done with it.

Otherwise, it's a project for a good machinist with a lot of spare time.
