Weather my answer matches what your looking for or not ! I know I used spring starters on trucks in hazardous areas ! In Mines, grain mills, Chemical plants Etc On Diesel trucks! You couldn't use electric start because of explosion and fire from gas or dust or fumes! I remember cranking them, and they also spun the engine much faster then an electric starter. Weather they used them in the 30s and 40s I have no Idea! if no one believes me, That's fine I put my 2 cents in.

I remember putting one on a mac truck in a chemical plant that had hydrochloric and sulfuric acid reactors to transport the 10 ft. diameter by 15 ft. glass replacement section for the reactor when I was with a Canadian riggers crew!!!

So I know they were on trucks Even though I cant prove it with google or bing or etc


Who cares any way; I did but not now!Ive been googling all day LOL and my one finger has a blister from : smash:

Jester LOL
