Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: 26 Touring - transmission not disengaging

The transmission does not disengage fully, regardless of the position of the clutch and/or hand brake lever.

I jack up the rear of the car and with the engine running, the rear wheel is always spinning. And its getting good power - I am not able to stop the wheel from spinning by hand.

When the rear is on the ground, the car always wants to go, and even with the hand brake fully engaged, the car inches forward. The starter has a hard time turning the engine, my guess is because the transmission is providing resistance.

Something is out of adjustment in the clutch. ANy ideas of where to start would be great. Thanks.

Also a great article in modeltfordfix.com on adjusting the Model T trans and clutch from August, 2017.
