I just bought another t 26 coupe yesterday. It has been rebuilt front to back about 20 years but the other owner hardly drove it just around his neighborhood. The man I got it from got it and hadn't started it In 2-3 years. He said it had new wooden spokes on all 5 wheels new rebuilt trans,motor and he had the coils restored just last summer, paint is really slick and the underneath is as clean as a new car. When I started it yesterday, he said it had been out of his garage in probably 3 years. He never adjusted it to the true neutral free spot. I haven't had this with my other Ts. Any good suggestions of the best place to start. Thanks in advance for your help and advise. This is really cool old car and it's found a home. This one is a real keeper. Tim
Follow instructions in Royce's post. When you get the "free" neutral, you will be able to push the car without spinning the engine or crank the engine without the car rolling (each of the above while the parking lever is in the neutral position). The neutral will not be as free as neutral in a manual shift car.
