These were both tangled up in the pile of parts to the B I drug home? Any idea if they actually go to it or just happened to be there. The B has electric start and I did not see a place for this crank? He said he used to have an A, I wondered if maybe the crank went to the A, but the A started on the flywheel not with a crank to my knowledge. Also got the good news that back in those woods he has a JD 2 bottom trip plow as well. Im goona go back and scope those out, try to snag them as well. I am sure I will have many other half assed questions just like this one so please dont beat me up to bad, Thanks for any input you have.

I would not use that crank. There are no beveled areas to push the crank out of the engine. Maybe its a window blind crank for a overhead awning. Otherwise it is like the crank on a landing gear.

Looking close at the crank; bout 2/3 of the way back theres a hole; can't tell if its all the way through both sides, which could indicate the crank was mounted semi permanant. Is it possible the handle was used with one of the various types of lifting devices made during its time?
It is why I thought it may have been a landing gear crank. Todays cranks are bent pipe with 2 slotted plates welded on the ends.

I did see on the crank there is sufficient wear just behind the socket suggesting that the crank was operated in a hole rather than a bearing for an engine.
