How are you trying to turn the engine over? Manually with a wrench, or starter? What is battery voltage? Does voltage drop when start is selected?

tried with starter and manually
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 months ago

No movement in either direction with wench? Oil level ok? No unusual noises? I think I would pull starter and use a bar on the ring gear,

Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 months ago

Nothing in the drive train that would lock the engine? Drive shaft from engine to the transmission? The hydraulic pump driving off the engine?

how would you check them to see if that's the problem
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 months ago

You have to start removing the pumps and drive shafts!

it free wheels in neutral and moved it four feet by pushing it
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 months ago

OK, so from what I gather the engine has seized. And it is not external!

need to pull the engine and oil pan to check main bearings?
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 months ago

Is there hydraulic pump mounted on the engine? That would be about the only other thing that could lock up the engine. Then pull the oil pan and look for damage!

Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
can an engine lock up just by turning it off after running fine? or what do you think would seize the engine
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 3 months ago

Engine seizes from lack of oil pressure or a physical break of something like a connecting rod. You have already removed the injectors and found nothing.
