Default IH crank

I picked this up at a yard sale. Can someone identify the engine (or tractor) this IH crank handle was used on. Part number 5758T

The hole is about 1 3/4 inch and that sleve is removable. Someone did a nice nickel weld. I think someone felt some pain in the past.

The crank is for an IHC McCormick Deering type M engine. The 1 1/2 horse engine uses a crank with a 1 1/2" hole. The 1 3/4" hole may be for the 3 horse engine, or the crank is worn some. I don't have a 3 horse engine so I can't say for sure.

Your crank is for a 3 hp M engine. I was just playing in the sun, so I took a shot of some M cranks. 1 1/2 - 3 and 6 hp.

John, No one mentioned the reason for the insert in the crank. It can be reversed in the handle should you want to crank the engine from the "off" or Pulley side which would mean the crank would have to be turned counter clockwise. Joe Morris

Joe, that's the purpose of the starting crank sleeve. This way it's possible to start the engine at both sides. Consider of places where the engine has to run only in one direction and the pulley has to be at the ignition side. Through this option, I use one of my six horse cranks to start an engine that runs counter clock wise.

John. I was well aware of the reason for the insert. I was just commenting that no one mentioned itor asked why it was in there. It seems to be unique to I H C, cranks . Joe Morris

John I have a 9759T crank that has an insert with a long throat,about 3 or 4 inches, instead of the reversible one. what was the longer insert needed for?

I don't know Joe, the parts book doesn't mention any longer ones. I think someone made it from an original to use it on his pulley side. There're small faced pulleys with a large dia, so you could reach the gib key with the longer crank sleeve.

Nice looking paint job on that "M" John. Makes mine look like a clunker.
