Default Such A Clutch

My '30 coupe, which is fairly dilapidated, but not terminally infirm, and can move under its own power, has suddenly decided to present me with a clutch stuck in the disengaged position.This fills me with dismay and keeps me awake at night. Why? Why, say I? It was just sitting there in my Ford barn, behaving itself, and decided to become stuck open. OK, why is not all that important at this point. Tell me, Barners, can I unstick it minus major surgery? Whack it with a rubber mallet? Jimmy things around through the inspection plate? Whaa?

I believe he stated that it is stuck I the disengaged position. If you cannot get it to work through the inspection plate the it is not that bad of a job to pull the engine.
