Re: help 156 dead !!! i think (poss alternator?)
I reckon it is the clutch that has gone first, and the starter jammed after.
Especially as it went as you were driving along, and you had trouble selecting gears before.
I bet the clutch was getting heavier and biting close to the floor too.
I have seen on some cars that have had clutches fail, that the springs on the friction plate in the clutch can come adift. If that gets wedged anywhere then it will cause problems.
