Hi Stakkers,

I'd like to post this hand cranking tractor video. Does any body has hand cranking video? You might demonstrate hand cranking starting and moving. Any makes small or large.

This is my video hand crank below...

Does this count as a "hand crank" tractor?

I can remember seeing a R.F.D. tv video of old tractors where a guy was trying to crank an old Catapilar with a bar through the side of the flywheel. Looks like it would be a race to get the bar out quickly. Anyone got a video of such a thing?

How about a Foot Cranking Tractor Video... ???? Not the perfect startup but Life isn't Perfect either... But What do you expect when the Carby has valves like the average Toilet.. I really need to take some Videos of the Hand Cranking ones...

This ain't a tractor but at 570 cubic inches, it was interesting to crank.



(I hope that works)

Take care - Elden

Sorry to dig up a old thread but I think this should serve as a timely reminder that we should take a little care when starting these old girls on the handle
