Default Lug wrench starter crank extension

Does anyone have a source to find out the correct length of the extension for the starter crank? I have a few in different lengths that I'm trying to sort out for their correct application. I've tried several of the V-8 club books but nothing.
Thanks in advance for any leads

You might post the lengths (and maybe a photo) and see if anyone recognizes them. What do you think they are from as a starting point?

The ford green bible lists the length for each year. Tell us your year, and I will look it up for you, if you do not have a parts manual.

Joe, Thanks for the heads up on the Green Book. I've made a feeble attempt to locate it there but with no success. Do you have a page or section number?

And the section is Tools. I hope that you already have the correct one. It took me years to find mine. That is the fun of this hobby for me. A hard to find item, in good condition for a fair price.

I had the lug wrench for my '36 but never the crank extension, then one day last fall I was cleaning up in the barnyard and hit a bit of metal with my rake. I pulled up the long lost extension somewhat rusty but it has to be to my pickup as it was the first motor on this farm. Before '52 horsepower here was either 1 or 2. I will keep it, rust and all in my truck.

Bob, Bingo!! That was it. Don't know why I couldn't find it. I now have that page marked for future reference. Looks like mine is for a '32 V-8 Passenger or 33/34 Pass and Commercial. Again, Thanks to everyone for their comments and help.
