Was having problems shifting a 1929 Ford Model A

tudor without severe grinding especially from 2nd to 3rd.  There was a loud clang from below the floor board and now it seems to shift without grinding or just a  little grinding.  Would appreciate any input.  The car has been sitting since 1966, never started  or driven until recently. Thanks

It might have been that some of the fingers in the clutch were binding from lack of use, causing an uneven and not full disengagement of the clutch.  That could have caused the gear grinding on shifts.  The clang might have been the clutch fingers freeing up?  Just a guess.

It is always nice to know a 1929 WHAT?  

Since you use the word "tudor" and since Ford and only Ford used that word..I would guess a ubiqiutous Model A Ford is the troublesome  pest here.

Won't hurt to remove the floor board, remove the inspection plate on the top bell housing and take a look.

.While you are there ,grease the throw-out bearing,check the transmission oil level(top of the filler plug hole) and make sure you have at least 3/4" top of the clutch pedal free play.
