Re: Outboard pull start upwards instead of out??
I've seen chainsaws with the brass grommet worn all the way through from the cord not being pulled straight. Of course, chainsaws are started much more frequently than obs, but the direction of pull is still not as "bad" as what you are suggesting.
Not sure if anyone makes such a kit, but you probably could rig a turning block inside the well, or maybe even on the motor.
