Ok picked up a 2012 Northstar tc650.  Seller opened and closed few times.  I just tried to open my self.  I don’t think I had the crank inserted all the way and realized one corner was stuck. ( yes unbuckled) Walked out and freed the corner and started to crank. Seemed hard. Lifted few inches and crank gears sheared of. And roof is a few inches up.   It’s in the backyard 

NOW WHAT!!!

                        HELP:/

thanks for your help:)
Don

From what I understand, the gear/crank connection is sacrificial point in case of sticking..... unfortunately. I think you're looking at supporting the roof to release tension and drilling into the gear and inserting a screw to remove gear. All with a fair bit of penetrating fluid for good measure. Replacement cranks should be available, or, if you can braze, that was the original connection. Good luck
