I started the SA the other day for the first time in about 9 months. One pull with the choke closed and the switch off. One pull with the choke open and the switch one. Fired right up and sounded great. I let her run for about 10 minutes then shut the engine off. I tried to start again in about 10 minutes and the crank would not turn at all. Hit the starter and it started with no effort. Any ideas?

could you describe the problem a little more fully? was the hand crank stuck, or the starter jammed in the flywheel, locking the engine?

If I understand the question correctly.
On most hand crank starter set ups. The crank extension shaft passes through the bolster. Take a look at your set up. Something is preventing the extension shaft from turning.
Could be crud buildup or perhaps a pin catching on the return spring.

It seemed like the engine was seized. Started it again today with no problems. The crank has been extended for a cattle guard so I'm going to look for something that is obstructing the crank itself.

I had the same thing happen with an H Farmall. Still don't know what happened, but I could not turn the engine with hand crank. Electric starter worked just fine.
