What is this starting crank off of?

I pulled this starter crank out of my pile and noticed it was longer than others that I’ve seen. It has a 1914 aluminum handle on it, but the top shaft is longer than a stock T crank. Same diameter. Any ideas?

Re: Wooden Transmission Bands

I use wood bands as well, no issues and they were installed many years ago. There is a difference in pedal feel compared to cotton or Kevlar, such as a firmer pedal. You have to have experience driving with the softer linings to understand the comparison, not a negative, just different.

    Re: 2019 HCCA Holiday Motor Excursion

    Great meet, beautiful crisp day. As usual, Jay Leno showed up in one of his amazing cars, and in his kind generous manner, he worked the crowd and welcomed people to take pictures with him.

    Re: I thought only Ford was sloppy with their brazing during production

    Just curious if the bike brazing job whether its smooth or lumpy in places. T restorers have asked questions on the forum whether to smooth out out Fords lumpy and flowed on pan brazing. A perfectionist would smooth it out. Wonder what’s the thinking in the old bike world whether to keep as is or m...

    I thought only Ford was sloppy with their brazing during production

    I was always amused by the overzealous splatter and puddles of brazing on the Model T Pans during production, but realized that after sandblasting a 40s Harley frame of mine that Harley Davidson was equally liberal with their use of brazing splatter. It’s all over, not just at the joints, similar to...

    It’s long gone, closed in 1980s, sold off over the years. Here’s a link to an article.

    Howard’s WW2 interview, and it’s quite a story.

    It is a 1940 Harley transmission with an F0 casting mark. The transmission is for a knucklehead. The 47 transmission pictures were just reference.

    Re: Please Id theses parts that I got along with T parts I purchased

    Well, if you listened to some of the guys suggesting you scrap everything, you would be in for a shock. That transmission is from a Harley Knucklehead, and is worth several thousand dollars. There should be a date code cast near the top or some place telling exact year. Here’s an eBay link of a simi...
