I have a 73 Midget in good shape. It's been in the backyard for a few months and has started each time I tried. Now that I need to move it to put it into storage it won't start. I turn the key and it seems to want to start but just wont turn over.

Any ideas?

If it won't turn over, clean the battery cables, charge the battery andseeif it willthen. Ifnot take a hammer and tap the starter it may start then, but it will probably need a new starer.
