Hi Guys and Gals,
I am going to try and atempt to make a hand crank for my cub I have a bad ring gear and dont want to split the old girl yet. Does any one have a close up of the end where it goes into the pulley or all of it as far as that goes . I bought my self 4 foot of 5/8 rod already today.

Here's some pictures of mine. Sorry that they're big. As a point of reference, the crank handle is in the down position.

Thanks guys thats just what I needed. Ok now for the big question. What about my snow plow will I need to make it longer ? I know on the Hs and Ms I guess the crank was longer for loader tractors to clear the crossover bar. Or do you just unhook the thing that raises the plow and move it toward the plow and put it back when started?

Park it on a hill. I heard of a mechanic at a shop breaking his arm hand cranking a tractor. When He got back to work the boss man ask him how he was cranking it when he broke his arm. So the mechanic went to show him with his other arm and broke it also. Poor fellow!!
