If the cross pin in your crank is in the wrong direction, start with the crank at 9 o'clock and pull towards 2 or 3 o'clock. Brace your left hand on the hood and keep your right thumb next to your index finger. Keep both arms out of the arc of the crank handle. If you can't start it with only 1/2 turn pulls, fix the reason it isn't starting.


Yes sir. Indeed , I'll pull that puppy. I see your point , now.
Thumb rides same side as palm.


Alright, I went out and checked it out with ignition off.
The mag snaps at 1 and again at 7 if I keep cranking.
I' need to avoid finishing my pull near the secong mag spring " pull". Less ambitious pull/ follow through.
Starting at 9 ,pulling to 3.
1 o clock snap for fire.

Thank you.

Tried it out ,took several pulls and getting choke and throttle just right.
Less throttle than when using starter. Knocked choke from about a quarter on , to off when it sputtered.

Hi,
Here are pages from the Cub owner's manual telling how to start the engine with the hand crank. There is a pic of how to hold the crank. :)
