Default Pull Start/Fly Wheel

Ok guys and gals need some help as I dont know where to go to from here.

Ran the engine in with 6 tanks of fuel just idling, an hour after the last tank ran through I decided to take the ride down to the park to have a drive, I went to turn the motor over and the pull start wont budge and inch, even with the plug out.

I am assuming its the fly wheel that seems to be jammed as well.

Everything went fine with the run in, is it a case of where things ended up stopping when the final tank of fuel ran out?

How can I free the pull startup, but I am guessing more to the point the fly wheel?


Cheers Mal

Would you suggest putting it in the teeth and tapping clockwise to free it up, or something like vice grips, I dont understand how you used the chassis as a lever as such?

try using a hairdryer or heat gun on the block first 190 degrees or so and next time you put it away make sure piston is on bottom
