Trust me; if that truck was in any gear, moving the crank would have been impossible.

I am still waiting to hear from "Leon Bee", though.

That looks like a reasonably good landing spot off to the left, that would be my 1st option, not that insanity! I wonder if that was a staged picture, can't see if there is a pilot in there or if he is roped in somehow, and the photographer just happens to be in just the right spot. Would be fun though telling a new student that would be part of their checkride!

She was just barely running and died in the middle of the lot.

I grew up on a big farm, they had me on a little tractor when I was about 6 years old. An old 8N, or maybe a Ferguson, with a harrow so I couldn't do much damage. But I'd get kinda hypnotized out in the field, would have no idea where I was supposed to be. One evening I'm driving it back to the barn, my brain froze and I drove right into a board corral fence. The boards bent way, way in and then the little tractor died without breaking anything. Got laughed at then, too.

Like hand propping an airplane--nothing I want to try.
I always start with the crank almost straight up with my body in front of the left fender. I pull 1/4 turn and if it does not start I do it again. This way if the engine yanks the crank out of my hand my body, arm, head and hand momentum is going away from the crank. Done it this way for years with farm tractors, trucks, cars and anything with a crank.

Ya know Sal, I'm not certain. There was a designed path through 1942 for certain.

I'm still not either. I looked up the three different part numbers in the book: the B-6319-A, the 52-6319 (for the 60HP) and the 81A-6319.



Each of these is listed on eBay so I could see the pictures and the threads on the one I have (5/8") looks shorter than the B-6319-A pictured in the eBay listing and closer to the 52-6319. The last one, the 81A-6319, looks longer and perhaps a bit more slender. Pictures can be deceiving. Wish I had one of each to compare in hand, but then I'd be sitting here with three to get rid of.



Thank you all, for the help.

Measure what wrench size it takes and I'll tell you which it is. We stock all three..

I'm betting tommorow's lunch that it's a B-6319
