Lesson on Cranking?

Postby AmLaFrance » Mon Jan 19, 2004 10:33 pm

Hi Folks,
Enjoying this forum, I have been lurking for a few months.
I have a '49 I bought (came with a house) in '82, and I have been fixing
and using it since, for snow plowing, belly mower and hauling a trailer.
It's a lot of fun to use and work on.

I recently bought a crank from the fellow on ebay who is making new
ones. I have never crank started this or any other engine bigger than a
sandwich engine. Can you give me a short lesson or point me to the
right on-line link?

Go to Rudi's manual server (pointer on all of his posts) and look at a Cub Owner's Manual. It is explained there. Pay attention to how to hold the crank. Make sure your timing is set by the book.

Then go to http://www.binderbooks.com/ and buy a repro Owner's Manual.
