Default Onan 4.0CCK-Has rope start pulley. Can it start with electricity?

I just saw an Onan 4.0 CCK at an auction. I didn't think to get the s/n. Didn't know if it would matter for this question.
It has a large rope start pulley on the flywheel. Will this type of Onan start by powering the generator exciter or whatever with a battery like my 6.5NH?

I can go back and get the s/n data if needed.
