1919 engine turns slightly


Recommended Posts

first off thAnks to all who replied to my earlier question. i turn the ignition on and hear the starter turning, but when i engage it i can see the fan turn about two inches and thats all i get, i have taken out the plugs, and squited some oil in each cylinder, plugs are still out, can turn over with hand crank, but not easliy, also put a charge on the battery, it came out of my 53 packard, and started it just fine last week, thanks in advance for any suggestions mark in ohio

Mark, First is the car in neutral? Have someone put the clutch down when you hand crank. You should be able to turn it fairly easy with the plugs out. Can you turn it 360 degrees with the hand crank?
