Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! What is engine model number? Remove the spark plugs and hold finger with rag over the spark plug holes to see if you have compression. No compression, take a probe and feel for the pistons, see if the pistons are moving in the cylinders.

no compression, engine firing. All compression lost. You can turn the blades by pulling on the v belt with blades engaged.

Did you feel for the piston? If piston is moving, check the valves. If no piston movement, pistons are no longer in connection with the crankshaft!
