Auger Problem

Recommended Posts

Take the spark plug out and see if it will roll over. If it does, then see if the piston goes up and down. If it dont' bummer!

Define "seized". Do you mean you can't turn it over with the pull cord, or you were running it and the motor locked?

Try pouring kerosene into the sparkplug hole and let it sit for a few days. I loosened up a lawn mower engine that way once. Good luck.

it sounds like it is shot. You can probably get it rebored but that might be pretty costly. The other option is a new short block still a expensive option but cheaper than new. If you can get the motor loosed up take off the air clean/exaust and this should allow you to look it the cylinder. The cylinder walls and piston are most likely going to be scored which basically will mean it is shot. If you wanted a excuse for a new auger this is probably it.
