Crank wanted

Postby Pete » Thu Nov 11, 2004 10:38 am

Hello all --

Does anyone out in Cub land have a hand crank that would be proper for a '47, SN 5233? She's magneto ignition but does have a 6v system. Electric starter works fine but would like to have the crank just to be complete.

This is my first red machine so I'm assuming that IH did like Ford, Cat, etc. and provided a crank with the tractor when new, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

Many thanks,

Pete P.

On a 47 they would have, but on late models they would have been optional. Try

You can also find them on e-bay if none of the suppliers John mentioned have one on hand.

:idea: Heres the one I got on eBay. He has them on there weekly so if you are patient you can get one for $20.

Hi Pete,

Welcome to the best CUB site in the known universe. You mentioned that
you wanted a hand crank to be complete. I also take this to mean that
you would want one to be "CORRECT".

It has been reported that many of the cranks out there are not like the originals. By this I mean that the cross pin in the "business" end is not in the correct angular position relative to the handle. There is a prescribed angle at which the pin should be with respect to the hangle. I am not
sure as to what this angle is but I am sure some one on here can tell you.
I just wanted you to know this. As well as simply not looking or being
correct it will make a difference when you apply "Manual" cranking power
to the crank.

When the crank is laying on a flat surface the contact pin should be vertical. On the eBay addy in my last post for the crank I bought I e-mailed the seller/maker and told him the pin was positioned wrong on his Cub cranks and he thanked me and sent me the corrected version so from then on they should all be correct. (2-months-ago) when I got mine.

Pete:

I echo the other sentiments about the forum here. Best on the net, and we are glad to have you aboard!

You got a couple of choices. The 3 suppliers John mentioned are excellent. They all have used and repro cranks.

However, you can save yourself some money that could be used for other parts purchases. On the manual server at the link below there are the drawings for a Cub Hand Crank.

They are not hard to make even for a guy like me with minimal to non-existent metal working skills. You can get the steel cut and bent exactly as shown in the drawings at many local steelmarts for a reasonable price, then all you would need to do is drill the hole and insert the pin! And it is only cold-rolled steel so it is not expensive.

Be a nice project and Lombard did an excellent job on the drawings and the pin detail is correct.

Just a thought....

Does anyone have any feedback on the Cub crank sold by O.E.M. ? They have one for $34. How is the functionality? Could I get a less expensive one at J.P. Tractor?

Thanks

Paul:

The hand crank that graces Ellie-Mae's floor pan was purchased from JP Tractor Salvage.

I paid $20.00US plus shipping to Canada. An original used Hand Crank in excellent shape and I got excellent service.

Go get one!

I echo Rudi's comment. I made my crank from a 24" section of 5/8" cold rolled round stock and it took me all of about an hour. The stock cost me a whopping $2.50. I followed the plan on Rudi's web site to the T and a week later I had the luxury of running into someone with an original. Once mine was painted up I honestly couldn't tell the difference other than the fact it wasn't all pitted and scarred like the his. This might not appeal to a purist but 5/8" bent stock is 5/8" bent stock. Just my 2 cents.
