Very cool Jason and as we say around here welcome to the affliction:-) Is it the bendix or just the spring that is bad?

Sounds like a government job here in the states.
1. Find old truck
2. Restore to original condition
3. Then rework it to look like it did when they found it.
Oh ! I forgot the most important part.
DO A STUDY ON EACH STEP FIRST at twice the cost of doing the work.
Great looking ride ! Have fun with it.
Jan

one of the bolts came out and got jammed on the spring and ruined it, I almost had it going on the crank, but 2 of the pawls are bad so the handle skips every now and then, guess i'll wait for the new one to show up.

Jason not knowing what you know about T models, you have to take the bendix off to remove the starter. You may want to check to see if the starter shaft is bent.

learning as I go, being a mechanic it's not to much of a stretch, I spun the motor the shaft looks straight, but the bendix would not throw in, plus the flywheel has some teeth chewed up, but starting in 6 degree Celsius weather does not help

6 degrees may be the hottest you'll have until spring. A switch to 10w30 oil may help with hand cranking. The car is probably overdue for an oil change anyway.
