Graymarine inboard engine hand crank

Thought you guys with inboard engines might be interested in a super rare hand-crank on eBay.

It is just like the one shown in the Chris Craft Brass Bell magazine page 25.

It came with a boat I bought with a Gray Marine engine.

Pretty cool to add to your boat for shows.

Look in eBay under Vintage Wood Boat Engine Crank.

Graymarine Phantom 6. 88 with hand crank,
by: Scott Haddad

I need to be free of this engine.

I got it in a trade a few years back and have been unable to make use of it.

It will turn over by the hand crank but that's as far as I have taken it.

Any offer will be considered.

Do you still have it?
by: john

Saw your listing about a graymarine hand crank.

Do you still have it?

I plugged it into ebay as you said, and nothing came up.

A guy could make some money if he could find someone to reproduce these!

Would have to buy the one on ebay to use as a pattern, then resell it on ebay.

Fabricate it?
by: McKee

I wonder how much it would cost to have the local machinist fabricate one from scratch.

flywheel pulley
by: Jim

The hand crank works on all three of my Graymarine engines...........however, the flywheel has to have a pulley attached to accomodate the crank.

I think they all/or most have that pulley if the engine has a belt driven starter/generator/altermator.
