Crank storage

Postby Glen » Sat Sep 28, 2013 4:20 pm

Hi,
What do you all think of this position for storing the crank on a Cub, instead of laying down on the platform. In this position, it's not under your feet. The owner's manual doesn't seem to have a picture of which way to store it. I had a Cub with the 2 clips there, and remember them, and I can see the 2 holes where the clips go on this Cub. If the clips are tight on the crank, it should hold it like this, probably. The middle part of the crank has to be ahead of the PTO lever, or the crank won't fit there. This seems like it would have been where IH would put it, and not under where your feet would be. :)

Looks good to me, even if the clips let it roll a bit one way or the other, as long as it's not interfering with the rear rockshaft or something else.

Under the feet isn't the best location but, unfortunately, that is where IH placed it. The hole in the floor just in front of the battery box is where the pin in the end of the crank was designed to fit.

Long story. Son's neighbor had an early standard Cub outside the house. The only interesting thing about the tractor was the hand crank storage.

Metal strap attached to the bottom right rear of standard seat. Strap appeared to extend about 3 inches below the seat, perhaps 1 1/2" wide. Hole near the bottom of the strap. Handle of hand crank was inserted through the hole in the strap. Handle was positioned (laying) in the tool box. From the looks of the metal strap, the hand crank had been carried and stored in that location for a very long time.

Went back next day for a closer look. Tractor gone and no one at home.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Hi,
Yes John, I store my Cub crank in the garage. Denny, how do you know that's where IH meant for the crank to go? Does anyone have an IH picture of the crank stored on a Cub? I've looked some, and didn't find a picture. This isn't too important, but I thought it was interesting they have no picture of it stored. :)

On page 3 of the 1947, 1949 and 1950 manuals it is shown flat on the platform under the operator's feet. That's good enough to convince me it was not intended to be stored upright by the PTO lever.

Due to the crank clips installed at the factory and because of the perfect fit of the crank pin in the platform hole so the crank lies perfectly flat. That, and Barnyard's posting above from an early manual. (Thanks, Bill.) The manual pic backs up the crank storage theory shown in the below pic of my all original unmolested '48 Cub. But the handle under your heels is still a PITA. :lol: :lol:

This photo of the first Cub off the assembly line is further evidence that IH placed the crank flat.

I agree Denny, that's why Glens idea is a good one. I really get tired of things being in the way and underfoot. I actually get pretty po'd about stuff like that, usually my own doing, so one less thing to be in the way is a good thing.
FWIW - Ironically, I don't even own a hand crank. :)

Hi,
Thanks Barnyard for finding that in a manual, the oldest Manual I have is a 1955, and there is no mention of it in that. I looked at some of the older ones on here, and the pics were a little too small to see it. Thanks all for writing. :)

When I carry a hand crank I put it under the clips and rotate the handle up between the steering post and dash so it lays on the torque tube. The handle ends up about the ten o'clock position. The bend fits nicely around the mount for the steering post and it's clear of the kill switch and not under my feet!
