I picked up a Toro Sno throw single stage . The engine turns over when I pull the rope. Sounds normal but I havent messed with it. Hasnt been run in a while. It is A CCR with a plug in starter. I know very about it. Is it a Tecumseh engine TIA.

Well, it an't locked up. need to look at the cylinder wall see if it's scored. Next to checking the connecting rod bearings all I can think of?
