Wondering 2 things -

How do you hold the choke out when you're alone and hand cranking?
Does this video show the correct hand position for preventing injury if it backfires?

I have tired of trying more than once. Now I put a gloved hand on the crank and get er whirling she kicks me out when she catches and passes my arm speed. I end up punching the apron. hence the reason for the glove. I learned this new method in a fit of anger when my starter bendix sheered its bolt on a hot summer day. I had places to go so I started it twice like that before getting home. I would stand to say the method is not safe as some injury and pain is almost guaranteed. I have gotten my car started with safe half turn methods but my ign was not so good at the time and it would not go that day.

Thread a piece of bailing wire thru the radiator and put a finger loop in it, attach the other end to the choke arm. As you crank pull the choke, then release.

Is this NOS bailing wire, or reproduction?

Uh, it's "baling" wire, as in hay bales. Not "baiiing" wire, as in a leaky boat.
Or, grab a clothes pin from the clothes line.

Love the misspelled spelling correction!

But the clothes pin idea sounds way better. Think I'll put one in the on board tool box.

You really cant tell by looking at the bailing wire. If it is too short and 1/32 of an inch too wide, then it is a repro.
