I enjoyed this video, thanks for posting it Kirk. It reminded me of Daddy and his Ford pull type combine. The combine had a Wisconsin V4D engine that that 95% of the time wouldn't start. It was a hand crank engine. It frustrated Daddy so much one day, that he and a Mr.Singelton, removed the flat belt in which the engine provided power to the combine mill and ran a long belt to a Farmall H tractor. Daddy throttled the H up, released the clutch, and spun the Wisconsin at such speed it couldn't refuse to start. It indeed started, but had to be shut off to remove the long belt and replace the drive belt. Daddy's thinking was that the engine being warmed up would restart with the hand crank. It did not. Daddy had enough of it. He drew back with crank in hand throwing it at the engine, successfully hitting it hard,and modifying the rotating air screen covering the engine's flywheel. I was very young at that time when witnessing this and learned some new words from Daddy, but later when I began to practice their use, Mama intervened. Ahh the memories ! SoS
