Customer Question

I have a 1953 ca 27838. It will not roll over; I replaced the battery, and had the starter rebuilt but it still will not roll over. Took out the spark plugs and tried to hand crank it. It was very hard to even hand crank it Any advice.

When was it last running? Have you removed the plugs and put oil in he cylinders to see if the engine will free up? Turn the engine with hand crank until it frees up. If starter won't turn it, you likley will need to remove the head and pan and get the pistons out to clean the cylinders of rust .
