Did you just get this sled? Did you buy the sled as a new leftover or used?
No way to tell without seeing the engine apart. Could be a crank bearing let gearing land broke and snagged in the cylinder locking things up.
Have you done a compression test yet? Can you do your own mechanical work? If so take the head off and see whats going on.

did it have old fuel in it? first thing we do now when one goes down is test the octane and fuel vapor pressure of the fuel in the tank. it almost always bad. fuel now a days does not last beyond a month of sitting in your tank. this is both ethanol fuel and non ethanol fuel both don't last. 100 low lead or vp race fuels are the only fuel that last a year or more and this only if no air is present. it loose's it's light ends and vapor pressure if air is present.

Northstarrick….First weekend added 1/2 tank of new fuel. Ran fine till the track ripped. Last Saturday, added another 1/2 tank before departure. Odds are, it was not bad fuel.


Thanks for insite.
