Remember the old catch phrase from the 60s/70s?

I bet there is a ratcheting or clutch style mechanism that lets the thing freewheel when catches or backfires etc.

The old fords and such ya slipped it toward the engine and there was a notch/key way (for lack of the proper damn word), and as ya cranked it over ya pulled back toward yourself disengaging the handcrank in case it kicked back.

If ya timing wasn't good enough, well, it hurt.

Better to use a plane on a treadmill. A lot more thrust.
