Topic: Early 103 class torpedo cranking system

Hi all,
I have noticed that the early 103 boats, notably 105, 107 have the early style tube cranking system as seen on 77' boats. My question is, how was this system cranked? The later speed cranks would not fit as the drive is horizontal rather than vertical. Did they use a type of large socket wrench?

Best Regards,
