How often do you see these?
This appears to be a complete pull starter kit for inside the car. The driver can simply pull on the handle to start their Model T.
It is in very good condition. First $600 (buy it now) or best offer gets it. I will take emails in order. I am going to Chickasha so if you settle with me before I leave today I can deliver there.

Out of curisoity if the buyer plans on using this on a car can we get a report of how it works along with some pictures?

Personally I can't see how that would work unless you got a real strong arm. Especially on a new, tight rebuild. More of a cool fad item to me.

There was an older fellow who installed one on his very low mileage, unrestored '17 touring here in the Twin Cities.

No problem for him to start the car - it worked very well.

When the ignition is on battery, all it takes is a slow pull to bring the piston into the proper position for the cylinder to fire and then let internal combustion take over. In other words, the engine really does all the work, not the guy pulling the handle.

A few years back I bought a foot operated starter. It went in the 17 Touring quite well, believe it or not there IS room for a fourth pedal. It would only turn the motor a 1/4 turn and was very hard when the motor was cold, but was great once warmed up. That Touring is now in England.

I still haven't gotten around to installing these two different hand pull from the drivers seat starters yet.

They often were marketed to women, to keep a woman out of the rain and traffic. Ads often show a woman pulling the handle.

Right or wrong, my son starts our T with a foot starter switch by pulling the choke out, hitting the starter a few revolutions and then turning the key on Bat and then sliding the timming rod until it catches a coil buzz and the T kicks over.

So, I presume a hand starter is doing the same thing, just priming the engine and carb and then the switch energizes the coil and combustion occurs. On a mag car, I'm thinking like others, it would be difficult to generate the momentum needed to energize a coil.
