BS: How to use your handle

Place in the slot below your radiator, press firmly home to engage, rotate slowly clockwise until you feel the resistance of the engine, crank clockwise until the engine fires.
Ensure that your thumb is on the same side as your fingers as a "kick back" can break the thumb!

Not all of you have slots below your radiators, of course. Those of you who do not can still use your handle with the help of someone who does have such a slot. Fortunately both designs are readily available on the market.

That's the way we had to crank a model "T" ford or you can bet your ass you'd have a broken thumb.Been there and done that

Last night he had the strangest dream
He'd never dreamed before
He put oysters in a slot machine
And they spilled across the floor.


That dream is a terrible awful portent of future calamity. Oh, how I wish for your sake you'd never dreamed that! How terrible! Can I have your bike?

(I need to give credit to George Burns (for a variation) on that.)

I am afraid to ask. What ARE you talking about. This sounds really kinky.

Either that or his nuts were crushed and [a]salted when he tried to crank the engine clock*-wise. (He thought it said cock-wise.)

Why is bellybutton fluff always blue?

Because you leave it in the rinse cycle too long.

Nah, i always handwash bellybutton fluff. I find it's just too delicate for the machine, even at 40 degrees.

I mean your bellybutton is in the rinse cycle too long.

The real question here is where does the stuff come from? Is it only the male of the species who has it? Or am I just deficient? Should I ask my doctor why I have no belly button fluff? Do I need a supplement? Now I'm worried...

You know how socks wear out at the heels? Well that's where bellybutton fluff comes from, and why it is mostly blue.

Last car I had which you could crank was a 2CV, no radiator to go through (being air-cooled) but the method was otherwise the same and the handle did service also for the wheel jack. Surprisingly good in snow, also good for Rommel impersonations through the top, but not during snowstorms.

Insert into gramophone, turn slowly until screwed into place, wind spring, lower needle onto record, enjoy sounds.

Same era. My father had a starting handle in a car once. It was made in 1938.
My sister still has the gramophone. I think she is waiting until they come back 'in'.

Anyone else out there experienced with hand cranked, air cooled 4
cylinder Wisconsin implement engines, as on combines and balers?
The ones I met up with were something else to restart if they stalled when hot. Did I mention that the fingerprint of my right little finger has been divided with a fairly deep permanent split since I was 17?
