Part #3905? If that's the one, the parts book shows the same for all years. 5/16" x 1".

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.

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"

Royce:

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.

John,

Thanks, I knew it was through at least 1917 because mine is still riveted.
