I have had good luck cutting down grade 8, 5/16 bolts. The length can be obtained by measuring the crank opening in the grill. I just made a couple of cranks the other day, but I did not measure the pin. I am open to any suggestions on how to create the rotating hand grip found on these cranks. Mike.

I needed a crank for my "C" to get it turned over, timed, etc. because I didn't want to mess with my electrics right away. Anyway, I made a crank up out of 3/8 water pipe and fittings. For the pin, I drilled a clearance hole for a bolt and tapped a hole on the other side of the pipe. I used a piece of PVC pipe for the rotating part on the handle - when I was getting the "C" started first time, I didn't have this, and rubbed a heck of a blister on my hand!!

My B's electric, but my dad had a cranker. The slip handle is a thinwall steel tube sleeve, knurled. The crank hanlde had a groove cut in it, the sleeve slipped over, then the sleeve was crimped into the groove tight enough that it couldn't slide along the crank, but loose enough to turn freely. A press and die capable of forming the steel tube in this way would be needed to reproduce the cranks.
