1926 Model T engine stuck


Recommended Posts

Starter bendix stuck? Sometimes the starter bendix will get jammed into the flywheel ring gear and lock everything up. Sometimes you can rock the car and it will loosen up, other times you may have to take the bendix cover off and loosen the starter to get it to un-jam itself. The cause of this could be a slightly bent starter shaft. Also, some of the aftermarket and repro. Model T bendixes are not made right and they have a tendency to jam.

I have no experience with Model T's, but based on my experience on similar engines, I suggest pulling the starter. If the starter drive is hung up, it could have the engine stuck. If you pull the starter you will probably find that the engine is no longer stuck, and you will find the source of the problem.

Kinda obvious but is the tranny out of gear? Possibly frozen clutch won't release when pedal is depressed.................Bob
