Default Re: Motor Suddenly Stuck

Closure: The hammer wouldn't do it and neither would rocking the car. I removed the starter bolts (and it was still wedged in there), whacked on it again with the hammer, and finally resorted to rocking both the car and the unbolted starter. Finally it went SNAP and I was on the road again. As the kids were clamouring for ice cream and a Model A ride I deferred the starter shaft checks until next weekend.

Thanks ALL for the comments and tips.
