Weedeater 13.5HP : rear end locked up?
I was cutting the grass and the engine stalled. The engine started up but there was no drive. Go it in the garage and saw the drive belt had fallen off a pulley. Fixed that and the engine won't start now. It tries to, but it won't turn. Of course I have to press the clutch pedal to enable the starter. If I put the mower into 1st gear and try to push it, the rear end is locked solid. Should it have a bit of give at least? I'm wondering if the rear diff is locked, and if so, why and is there any hope?
