Default Briggs and Stratton "A" starting crank

Anybody have a starting crank for an briggs model A they could take pics of? I have an A missing the starting crank and I plan on building one. Is the notch ramped on one side or is it square?

Yes, thank you. Now I just need to figure out how to make the ramp.

Flat to go against the starting pawl or pin whhen cranking, 45 degree cutaway so when the engine starts, the pawl or pin pushes the crank out of engagement. You can make it out of a section of pipe that fits loosely on the starter shaft, and cut the angled side with a thin angle grinder blade. Try to polish that ramp as best you can so the pawl does not snag.
