it was but i hit a iron dropper star dropper i think you call them and when i drain the oil there where pieces of key way in the oil the mower now will not go thank you
Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 8 months ago

Thanks for your response. Check again, to see if there are some more broken pieces inside your crankcase. I believe that due to the impact from hitting the iron dropper, your engine may have some internal damage. The broken pieces may be something other than pieces of key way.
