Hello, I am new to building a Model T. Putting the whole thing together. Myself learning as I go. Rebuilt the motor and transmission. Tried to roll the chassis and it is stick in gear. I understand the lever putting it in neutral between low and high gears but it stays in gear. What could be the cause for this? Thank you....Jim

James, sounds like you probably haven't found that sweet spot known as free neutral yet. Or you may have your bands adjusted too tight. here's a good article on how to achieve a good free neutral, hope this helps.
