This problem occurs more often than you might think, although not having any brakes makes the job quite a bit more difficult.

Will the engine run, or at least crank? If it will run, start the engine in neutral, let it warm up, and shut it off. This will reduce the load on the starter for the next step.

Block the wheels securely, put the trans in 3rd gear, hold the clutch pedal down, and then try cranking the engine. This is about as far as you can go without doing any disassembly.

If the disc doesn't break free after doing the above, please post again.

Sorry, but I can't offer anything useful for the seat bolts.

Have you taken the seat bottom out? When I rewired my 48, I had the seats our so I could get under the dash easier. I then installed studs to bolt the seat down and makes it a lot easier to install the seat frame back in the car by myself.

Answered in your other thread with the same subject line here:
http://www.chevytalk.org/fusionbb/showtopic.php?ti...

I will ask the moderator to combine the two threads, which will make life easier for anyone who comes along later and needs to do a search on this subject.

Here are a couple of ideas that may help.

46,

My Ford 8N tractor does the same thing during the humid rainy season if I don't drive it at least every 2 weeks, even with the clutch pedal blocked in the disengaged position. Once stuck I have to "split" the tractor to get access to the pressure plate. Loosening the pressure plate bolts and forcing a thin putty knife between the flywheel and clutch disc is required to solve the problem on my tractor.

Because "splitting" the tractor is a big project I've tried other methods of freeing the clutch but none worked.

That's the next step for 46Stylemaster if he can't break the clutch free with the starter. Fortunately, it is much easier to unbolt the pressure plate on our Chevys than it is on your 8N.
