Customer Question

I have a Kohler sv720.
My son was mowing and it just died. It would blow the fuse with the key in the off position. I traced the issue to the flywheel and strator. It looked like something got in there and chewed up the magnets and strator. I replaced both. The starter engages but the engine will not turn over, even with the spark plugs out.
Is the engine seized?

It may be seized, but I would remove the flywheel and see if the engine will turn.

Put flywheel bolt/nut back on and use a wrench!
