Handcranking.

Trying to get a shaft to spin in an A4 that probably has some internal rust due to water intrusion.
I have to cut an access hole bc there is no access to front of flywheel in a Catalina 30.
After I gain access I need to spin shaft, but I don't have a hand crank.
Is there anything else I could use?
Thanks!

PG, My homemade crank tool was made from a piece of 3/4" galvanized pipe with a 5/16" slot cut in one end and a 1/2" hole cross drilled in the other end.

My buddy's C-30 has a spark plug socket that has the two notches cut in it to fit over the roll pin and that works great too.

I have put a bottle of mystery oil into the cylinders, it's been soaking for a couple of days, maybe I should fill ithem more?
But anyway, I think I'm getting ready to remove starter and access gears that way.
Thank you all for this help!
