If you want, keep a journal of your project with pictures and maybe do a write-up in our HOW-TO's so others can share. FWIW: The 2N-17040 hand crank was designed with a spring loaded device because it was meant to keep it installed handy at all times. The reason is there was no electrics on the warhorse models and so it had to be hand cranked in order to turn over. The Marvel Schebler TSX-38 carb was made with a double throw choke lever and if you look close in the picture of the LH front dogleg you will see the additional choke lever protruding so the operator could open and close the choke when cranking by hand.
