Stan, I just thought about this. I remember now that when I put the crank in I neglected to shake hands with the shifter. If it was in gear it may have been tight and not let the engine turn. Naturally it would have been put in neutral when we loaded it. I know it was in neutral all the way home. I just went out and put it in gear, removed the coil wire and tried to crank it and it was somewhat tight by time I did a 3/4 revolution.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Hey! That's not magic, it's the same CRIS that I deal with every day. :lol: Thanks for the answer. Seriously though, where are you putting the pry bar? In the flywheel? I've always been reluctant to really put a lot of pressure there for fear of damaging the flywheel teeth. Stan

Yes, get under a tooth and give it a gentle nudge. Been lucky so far in not taking off any teeth. Can't say it loosens an engine every time though.

You BENT the crank and then negotiated a lower price????? The heck with your magic pry bar -- where can i get one of those rubber crank handles for next time I go look at a cub :lol:
Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and to work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.

Shhhh! Don't tell anybody but they're aluminum, rubber would flex back and give it away. Barnyard probably has a crank straightening jig to! The real discount comes after he has bent and straightened it a few times and then lays into one and breaks the crank. :shock: :D :wink:

Tractors are like watermelons: the RED is good and you throw away the GREEN.
