Anybody recognize this wrench and hand crank?

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.

Photos look OK to me unless the middle one was supposed to be the whole piece.
I've never seen a hand crank J.D. that wasn't turned by the flywheel.
Maybe an L, or M, or an older diesel that the pony motor was cranked by hand.
I never was around one of those models except shows, and never paid attention.

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.
I was about to post the same thing. Not sure that's a crank handle for an engine.
No way to push it away when the engine starts. Should have an incline on one side,
or a pin that fits the groove and incline on the pulley.
Never seen a wrench like that either, will be interested to learn what it's from, if anyone knows.
