Hand Crank

An original N-series hand crank and the “ratchet” drive nut that goes into the front crankshaft pulley. This is one of the later style cranks that is one piece forged steel with “wing” shaped drive dogs to kick out easily when the engine started. The raised ring a few inches back from the end identifies this one as a NAA crank. Cranks were provided for all 9-2-8Ns and NAA. If your battery died, you always had this backup way to get the tractor started.

Thanks to John Smith of Old Ford Tractor for allowing us to use this information.
