Located in upstate NY
25 starter just whirls.?
Like the bendix is not snapping back?
I would usually hit It with my fine adjustment tool
Is this common?
It started fine yesterday
Guess I could hand crank it...

Sounds like a bad Bendix spring or a broken spring screw. The only way to find out is to remove the Bendix cover but don't loose the cover screws they are a special screw.
6 volt or 12 volt system?
I see you're new to the Model T forum...Welcome and I hope you enjoy your new toys
I wouldn't hand crank it. There's generally a reason it broke the bendix. KICK!!!

Welcome to the Forum, Andy. You've come to the right place. Congratulations on getting your "new" T's!
Now you get to be initiated into the wonderful world of working on Model T's by working on the Bendix. Have fun with that!
Andy, just check your timing first and make sure it is retarded just past top dead and crank it. Jack up a rear wheel to make it a bit easier. I never use my starters.
