But I am wondering if there is a crank handle that I am missing that was not included from the previous owner? Does anyone have any info on a crank handle attachment? A friend with a non FR TT has a crank handle that was supplied from the factory for this purpose.

Thanks,
I was just hoping someone would have an anwser to my question either a forum member or other.

I guess I should start a new thread..

This thread has become so clogged with posts not related to the OP's intent that I am not sure what to fix, what to keep, and what to dump.

Like a surgeon opening up a cancer patient too far gone for surgery; I just close it up and move on.

I am willing to take suggestions from other moderators on how to fix this.
I can just wade in there with an axe, but someones gonna be upset.

i think the thread title may be misleading posters that they'll get an answer from an actual factory rep/tech.

does it seem that way to anyone else?
It seems to have morphed into that. The Original Post (11 pages ago) was just suggesting that factory reps be invited aboard. Then we had a good discussion of the pros and cons. Now I think its become a self-fulfilling prophecy (but without the reps)

I'm not a moderator, but I might suggest locking the thread because its served its original purpose.

And I guess we also found out that FR is not willing to contribute .....

So a lock would be in order ....

OK - this thread has served it's purpose and is being closed. Folks... we have lots of great factory reps who do post here and their input is valuable. We also have lots of very knowledgeable members who are also extremely helpful and this is the amazing thing about a forum - members helping members. Thanks for all the good input on this topic and for making the forum such a friendly place.
