Over the weekend I bought several things for my '21.One thing was this crank handle.[URL=http://s738.photobucket.com/user/thomc1957/media/1010161933_zpszrd11udk.jpg.html][IMG]http://i738.photobucket.com/albums/xx24/thomc1957/1010161933_zpszrd11udk.jpg[/IMG][/URL]
Since I don't have the car home yet, don't have the ratchet , or the spring, I don't know if the handle will work for my car. It is about 7.5 inches from the bend to the ends. The handle is metal and has a spring behind it. Does this look like a T crank?

Yes, I believe that's the correct one for your year T.

Yes. Correct style hand crank handle for year of your T.

Just slip it into the crankcase bushing, and then fit on the ratchet and pin, then cotter the pin.

Forgot to add.

Be sure to fit the coil spring at the end of the crank handle shaft. That spring functions to be sure the crank handle pulls back after the engine starts, sorta like a Bendix spring :-)

Without that coil spring, the ratchet can bump against the crank pulley when the engine is running.







Spring compressed when engaging the ratchet, ready to push the crank handle away from the crank pulley.

Sometimes the little hole for the spring is hidden by dirt and/or paint, but it's there.

I saw the small hole after cleaning the crank , but thought it was an imperfection in the metal. Thanks all.
