Stan, I just thought about this. I remember now that when I put the crank in I neglected to shake hands with the shifter. If it was in gear it may have been tight and not let the engine turn. Naturally it would have been put in neutral when we loaded it. I know it was in neutral all the way home. I just went out and put it in gear, removed the coil wire and tried to crank it and it was somewhat tight by time I did a 3/4 revolution.
