Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer have you tried to un seize it ? If not it may work , remove the spark plug and shoot some wd 40 in it then fill the cylinder with oil and let it sit for a while , then after a few hours try turning the flywheel reverse rotation , if you can free it up empty the oil and pull it over a few times then put the plug back , it's a 50 / 50 chance . I will check for a piston and cylinder as well
