Just a trick in case this ever happens to you again or someone else.

If the starer jams like that it can usualy be unstuck by turning the engine backwards a bit. Next time stick it in reverse and feather the clutch out while rolling forward, (or a forward gear while rolling backwards). If it's just the drive that has jamed in the flywheel, this will usualy do it. Of course then you will have to roll start it in the normal manor.

PS, don't try this you chevy guys, it can walk the cam out the front of the engine and cause real damage. Not on a ford with a retainer plate though........ hehe, another good reason to pick fords, (like we needed ANOTHER reason............ *G*).
