Toro Recycler - blown engine?
Please tell me what these symptoms sound like:
- mower started stalling out hot, would restart when cooler a few minutes later
- I checked out all the basic maintenance items (oil, air filter, spark plug, belts) and they looked okay
- finally it stalled out hot again with a loud clatter
- now it spins like a top with the starter - like no engine compression
I'm guessing busted valve or cracked head, possibly not cost effective to fix in a six year old mower.
What do you think? Are there other possibilites that this might be?
