Hand Crank with Snow Plow

Postby Bill V in Md » Sun Feb 22, 2015 1:11 pm

Even though I have a starter and it works fine, I like to use a hand crank to start the Cub. However, in the winter with the snow plow installed, the hand crank interferes with the front arms of the plow frame. I saw this longer version of the crank on ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/FARMALL-IH-INTERNATIONAL-CUB-CRANK-/251847488389?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3aa347b385 and at 30" in length, it is 10" longer than the standard Cub crank. It will be close to contacting the blade, but I think it will work.

Note the orientation of the pin. You will have to pull sideways rather than up.

My Cub tractor came with an extended hand crank, 10 or 12 inches. Section welded into the middle.

Thinking you can come up with a hand crank and weld in the required distance, section, for less than $30-.
I have an excuse. CRS.

It is not difficult to fab one from a piece of 5/8 inch stock and a roll pin for engaging the pulley. Just lengthen the dimension in picture.

Thanks for pointing that out, Jim. That is probably a "deal breaker" for me.

Eugene & Stan,
I think you both make a good point. That is probably my next project. Thanks

I use my hand crank pushing downward and just a half turn on the crank to avoid the grader blade. It works fine and started in -20 F.
