need advice on hand starting a 1937 JD A
i just did some trading and got restored 1937 JD A . i have two other two cylinder deere's but they are electric start . this is the first hand start i've messed with . i know the flywheel has to be in the position of the compression stroke to crank . is there a good way to tell when the flywheel is in position to crank ? the thing cranks right up when the flywheel is in position but , by the time i get it to position and it fires , i have spun it 'till i'm worn out . if i knew where the flywheel needed to be , i believe it would crank easy and not kick my butt . anybody know ?
