Odd question for all
Anyone have an idea of what the dia of the pin that goese through t the crank handle
This is the pin on the earlier crank handles
Why I'm asking I need know befor I by one for a non ford car easier then making one if right dia
Part #3905? If that's the one, the parts book shows the same for all years. 5/16" x 1½".
No the handle bolt #3902 I assumed it a pin
This is the bolt/pin the hand handle or spinner goes on
The ratchet end nearest the motor is done but need add a handle
If you're talking about the earliest style that used a wood (or later bakelite) handle and has a special straight-slotted round head, the shank where the handle rides is 1/2" and the end that goes through the crank is turned down to make a shoulder and is threaded 7/16"-20.
Bob, I have one but its out in the shop. Ill take a picture and get the dia.
Walter thanks Jerome that be great but I didn't want to order a $30 part and have it not work I rather make it
I'm actually going to order the 13/14 style
I'll post a pic once it's done
Thanks to the forum it's a great help
Like so many, you failed to mention the year of your car! How can we help if you don't provide us that information! I can think of at least three different styles of those rivets used throughout Model T production.
The ratchet is held to the crank by a rivet up through about 1917. It was not removable without either removing the pan or drilling out the rivet.
I got a photo today using my phone but left it at the shop when I came home an hour ago. Will post the pic tomorrow. I do remember is was a skinny 1/2" at .490" and the small end was a fat 7/16" at .440"
Larry one crank I'm making is non ford as stated, and one for my speedster using an overland crank parts I post a pic
This crank is the one for my speedster
The other one is simular
The hole at the handle bolt is 7/16
The ratchet was held to the crank end and thus part of the pan assembly by that pin you mentioned all the way into 1919.
I make the new pin like the photo above, Bob
Thanks, I knew it was through at least 1917 because mine is still riveted.
In Jerome photo is the left end of the pin 7/16
