Have had several occasions where getting our 22hp Yanmar 3GM to start by handcrank would have been very convenient. Despite carefully following directions, releasing compression, cranking like mad, etc., not even a pop. We now carry a spare battery power-starter pack. It's easier to find and less rusty than the crank, though we haven't needed it...yet.
