Hi All -

Out running my 20 year old Ariens 824 last night.

Running just fine.

Hit a rock, broke the shear pin.

I had to tip the blower back on its handles to to get the pin out - it was in that position for 3 - 5 minutes.

The pull start was completely seized up when I tried to restart??

Any great ideas for me?

Thanks

Take the Belt Cover Off, and See if you can Manually turn the crank. Put a Pipe Wrench or Vicegrips on the Sheave if it is stuck, and free it up. GL.

Sounds like hydrolock but back on it's handles? I don't see how oil or gas can get into the top of the piston from that position.

I'd take out the spark plug, then see by trying to pull the cord; if not I'd then remove the pullcord and it's housing, not the flywheel housing.
