Hello. Welcome to the site. Thanks for coming.I'm ***** *****. I'm here to provide as much information and insight as I can, to best answer your question.If the engine will not crank over when cooled off it is possible the crank bearings could have caused the crank to lock up if they were overheated or the pistons could have seized in the cylinders due to the overheating. If that is the case , than the engine would need a complete rebuild or replacement. If you need more help, please use the "Reply" tab to continue our conversation - I'm happy to answer follow-up questions.If you are satisfied with the information I supplied we would like to close out this question.If you have no follow-ups at this time, please remember to Rate My Service.Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!Thank you for posting your question.Your business is very valuable to us.Thank You ***** *****
