I was able to crank start my '48 cub today. I have been neglecting the battery and it didn't have enough juice to turn the cub over.
Just pulled the choke, set it to half throttle and within 4 cranks it was running like a top.
I just moved to a new house with a 1000' driveway. The snow was nice and wet and curled up nicely to the side.
Thanks to the new shoed I got from Barnyard at the Bash, I didn't move too much gravel.
