comment Why no alternate (hand-cranked, spring-loaded) starter for a car?
My old motorcycle (1978 Honda CB400T2) had kick start, electric start, and could be push-started at walking speed. I kept riding for weeks after my battery died - no big deal.

comment Stubborn oil drain plug caused by hot oil?
Adjustable wrenches put all the torque on 2 points. Socket and box wrenches put it on 6 points. They also fit better, putting the force on the ends of the flats instead of the points. Some 6 sided wrenches even have curved faces, putting the force in the middle of the flats.

Why? Is the battery dead and he wants to charge it 1 time? Or does he leave his car idle for months at a time and he wants to keep the battery topped off?

comment What are the tradeoffs for positive vs. negative ground?
I'm not convinced. Even if you touch 2 vehicles with different grounds, you won't complete a circuit, as the non-ground side of the battery is isolated. Right?
