We grew up ( cranking ) engines to start them.
We used cranks on trucks and cars to manually turn over , crank to ( start the engine )
On our tractors we (cranked ) the
Fly wheel. To start the engine. To run.
Sometimes we called, fired up when it started.
We cranked the engine to fire it up.
Today we use battery powered solinoid s
And starters to ( Crank ) turn over ?
The engine to start, or fire up the engine.
My wife has told me that her car would not turn over ?
I know she means it wont , fire up.
When I ask her if it , the engine, cranked ? turned over ?
Or didnt fire up ? Start.
She just stares at me???
