Have you found source of fuel in crankcase and changed the oil and filter? If engine was run with fuel in the oil, it could have damaged the bearings in the engine, and is seizing as it warms!

Will it crank over when ot stops? Or starter will not turn it?

it will still crak
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

If it cranks over, it is not seizing. So do you have to reprime it to start?
