OK, this question is not about a full size tractor, not a GT.

 

Name a tractor that uses it's steering wheel for starting the engine.

 

I would ask our European members to not answer unless everyone else is stumped.

 

That should give you other guys a wee hint.  :D :D :D

Just a guess, a Porsche or Lamborghini's ?  Both are weird and use single Deisels in real old ones.

That would take a pretty good horse to start a Johnny Popper without a compression release.   I admit I'm not man enough!  :deadhorse:

Hand starting two cylinder John Deere tractors was accomplished by turning or “rolling” the flywheel.  If the tractor has electric start, there is a ring gear on the flywheel covered by a shield.  In this case, a special crank pin is inserted in the hub of the flywheel to start the tractor.  The steering wheel is removed from the steering shaft and placed on the crank pin to turn it.

That's all I can figure out

Sorry about not proof reading the OP.  The first "not" should not have been there :(  :(  :(
 
Here's a good vid of one being started:



I find the 'blow torch pre heat' a bit interesting as well.

I saw a different video of one a few years ago.
Took me awhile to remember the brand!
That's what they call a semi diesel. They're really good at burning poor fuel.
They were popular in Eastern Europe. Around Yugoslavia.
I forget why it's called a semi diesel and not a diesel.
Anyone else know?

Thats always one of my favorites, tractor you start with a shotgun shell.

 

That steering wheel start looks scary..good way to break fingers or arm!
