I had rebuilt the 6 cyl OHV engine in my 1952 8n Funk conversion a few years ago . It was the very first rebuild ever for me . A friend helped me with some reassembly claiming he was an ace at mechanics .Well when it was all done & ready to start , it wouldn"t even budge . So I started disassembling it carefully & checking everything as I went . Finally discovered he had the mains & rod bolts over torqued .Also discovered he put the wrong bolts in when he mounted the pressure plate . Those bolts were too long & against the flywheel - not letting it turn at all . After I finished retorqueing everything & reassembel it all back together , it spun over nicely & started . Purrs like a kitten . Made me more aware of those guys who brag about themselves & their mechanical abilities over & over . Hope you find your problem & get her purring again . God bless , Ken

Did not replace any bolts other than the oil pan and torqued to 15 lbs.
