Rambler is on a distinguished road

Maybe fresh oil has caused it to do whatever it was wanting to do.

It was feeling a little bit stiff and occasionally difficult to get into second on some cold mornings, it didn't feel particularly unhealthy however (no noises) and there wasn't much more than a decent film of metal sludge on the plug magnet. Oil was old.

I just drained about 300mls of oil, dip stick is now measuring in between H and L on the low side, so I was probably about right with 250mls. Still nothing, now wont go into any gears.

Gee this is pretty bad if I can't get it going. With 200,000ks and a leaking steering rack, plus on the original clutch, I'm thinking I'd be up for more than it's worth in repairs.
