So those of you following our progress know we’re just got the wiring to the point we could try to turn over the engine.
With a new battery things were looking good. We initially tried starting with it almost turning over; after not being started for almost 6yrs. On second attempt, there was a “clunk”. On third attempt it stopped trying to crank at all.
We tried to turn over manually with wrench and it will turn to a point and not go any further.
This engine had been rebuilt but has never been driven, only briefly run years ago.
Shop owner said we will need to try to take a look inside with a camera to see what is preventing the piston from having normal movement.
Hoping this is not a major engine setback.
Just wish ONE project w/this car would go smoothly without an unexpected hiccup!
Is that too much to expect?
