Starting handle

Postby UK-Cub » Thu Jul 03, 2014 1:51 am

My 12 volt French built Cub starts on 'the button' every time, but in case it does not I will need to use the starting handle.

The one I have is missing the cross pin / peg.

I could easily make / fix a peg, but is there anything I need to consider before doing so?

Thank you. David :help:

I just repaired one, with a piece of bolt. Just be sure it isn't too long, to fit in the bolster slot, or pulley.
