Hello, My brother is restoring a VF4 with a Lincoln Welder. We believe 1945. Serial 2088161, RPM 2130, Size 3 1/4 - 3 1/4 , Spec 86522. It was an old Military Welder from the looks of the Grey Paint. He's just trying to get it running but needs a Hand Crank for it. Anyone out there has or knows of one For sale? Thanks for Your Help

I found a crank, here is a picture of two of them. I think you need the longer one, if you think you need the shorter one, let me know. I will give you the crank if you pay for the shipping I will send you a message.

You can start a VF4 with a short crank. The longer hand cranks are helpful with the larger displacement V4's like the VP4 and VG4

The different lengths are the part that fits on the end of the crankshafts, it doesn't give you any more leverage when cranking. Which crank do you want?

I am not looking for either right now. There is a U-212 handle for the single, twin cylinders and small V4's, and the longer U-226 handle for the larger displacement V4s. That was the point I was getting at. The cranks in your picture are for the single/twin/small v4 engines.
