Starter and flywheel gears clashed when starting 1940 160

For the first time ever, the starter gear clashed with the flywheel ring gear when starting my 1940 160, causing a grinding noise and resulting in damage to both gears. I have never had this happen before and am wondering what happened here. Could the starter have failed to disengage? Was it metal fatigue when the starter was engaging with the ring gear? We're trying to diagnose this to get to the root of the problem and any thoughts are welcome. Thanks!

Here in southwestern Connecticut, it's down to $3.13 for regular and $3.99 for premium. Hoping it stays low for the summer!

Karl,

The car and your work on it are absolutely stunning! I wish you were on this side of the Atlantic so we could see the car in person and benefit from your expertise.

Thank you for the suggestions. My initial check of the linkages shows no apparent issues but I will look more carefully to see if i missed anything, including the binding issue that was noted. Thanks again.

So, it was a nice day here in the Northeast today and I went to start up my 1940 Packard 160. It started on the first try as it usually does. As it was warming up, I tapped on the accelerator to slow down the idle but, instead, the speed just increased. I did it again but the engine was now racing and would not slow down. Looks like the throttle is stuck open. How do I fix this so it doesn't happen again? Is there a recommended lubricant that should be applied? If so, how often should this be done and where? I've had many cars with carburetors and this is the first time this has happened. Thanks for any suggestions.

I restored my clock and speedometer with Bob's Speedometer in Michigan. (Bobsspeedometer.com). Their work was great for my 1940 Packard.

I don't have any wisdom to add on this issue - but that is one beautiful car!
