Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!
No special tools, screwdriver and a small socket set. But have you removed the spark plug to be sure it does not have fluid trapped in the cylinder, keeping the engine from turning??
I see question is still open, did you get spark plug out and test?
