I bought a TT truck that was running at a show, but on the way home they forgot to tie it down and it rolled off the trailer and now you can't crank it. It also has a muncy tranny. What would you look for first to get it running again?

Eugene, Are you saying it will not turn over at all?? Like the engine is froze...??

Eugene,

Assuming something isn't stuck in gear, I would strongly suspect that the engine pan has been bent and is binding up the engine. Don't even try to run it like that.

The engine can not be cranked and the pan is not bent. and the neutral and parking lever is in neutral

Did it remain vertical after falling off the trailer? Possibly the differential/worm screw is jammed.

Eugene, Did you try to start it with the starter, if so the starter may have stuck the bendix in the flywheel. If that is what happened, you can loosen the starter and rock it around until it pops out. Good luck.

Eugene, being a northerner who moved to Georgia I've noticed locals say my car won't crank. To us northerners that means you can't physically turn the engine over but down here it means that the car will turn over with the starter but won't start. Which case describes your problem?

It just rolled off the back of the trailer and the back wheels hit the ground but the front wheels stayed on the trailer. they got stopped before it came off the trailer. But it is not clear how far they went on the back wheels The guy that had it has died and his wife said not far if you can guess how for is not far. I will check the starter tomorrow for I have that happen before.

look for flat spots on the tires. If you find any,something might have jammed in the rear end.

How far is "far"? "No one can tell". Well, I'll tell you that I'd pull the cover plate off the transmission and have a look for parts, pieces or burned oil, for starters...

With any luck the Muncie was in neutral so damage could possibly be minimal
