    Good afternoon,
    I have been searching for a round, rubber pull start handle for a 1947/48 Gale (and others). Can someone please direct me to where I might obtain a part # and ultimately a source for either NOS or reproduction? Trying to stay with round and not go to a universal “T” style. I’ve attached some pictures and hopefully they came through. Thank you!

    Update – I was able to navigate through the Members Only Drop Box documents and found the Goodyear and Hiawatha models I’m working on. The part #’s for the handle and hardware:
    Handle: 171-369
    Clamp Screw: 133-161
    Clamp C’sunk: 102-132
    Clamp Tapped:102-133

    Happy to find the resource and the information archived there will be extremely helpful on this project going forward. I could still use some help getting directed towards a source if someone knows of a supplier. Thank you!

    Looks like they used the same knob as on my Zephyr of the same
    era. I’ve never notice this type for sale, but it would be interesting
    to find out.

    Buccaneer,
    Thank you for the photo and reference! It provides another search option! Since finding the part number in the archives, I’ve been able to search a couple parts sites. No hits yet but I know more now than when I started the day. I’ll keep looking as it appeared to be a popular/common handle in the day. Thanks again!

    You're only as smart as the person you're talking to.

    A piece of oak on a wood lathe would make a nice knob all varnished up!

    Thank you Buccaneer, I like the suggestion! Maybe a little teak, oak or mahogany would be a signature look!

    Try Doug Penn as he used to have repops and probably has good used ones. His new website is under construction still so you won’t see any displayed.

    I’ve bought starter knobs of the Korandas before but don’t know if they still have them.

    Try Russ Larson the Martin guy in Nebraska. I think some small Martins used round handles.
