crank handle identification requested

Recommended Posts

As mentioned in another post, I found this on my grandparents' farm in the late 1960s.  As shown in the second photo, there is a slight bump out in the center of the tip that is exposed when the handle is inserted into the crankcase.  I don't see any other identifying marks.  Thanks for your help!

Perhaps some of us can comment on what it doesn't fit to narrow the field down a bit? It is not Franklin 1930-34

not a chevy, unless the end was cut off

 

almost any crank handle is going to need a catch on the end............

It looks like the pin is missing and the hole is kind of far back for an engine crack.

My guess is that is for a piece of farm equipment.

I should have been clearer on the drawing.  It's not a hole near the chamfered end, but a 1/4" protrusion on either side, 1/4" in diameter, that allows the crank handle to catch into the crankcase opening.DSCN1417.thumb.JPG.a0acfa14d7f560a0b316a5698d98709e.JPG
