Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat
I have disassembled the engine and removed the cylinder and piston from my Vespa ET2. The shaft would spin freely when i first removed the cylinder and piston and now it's not moving at all. Can somebody explain what happened and how i can get it to spin again? I want to make sure the fact that it’s blocked will still allow me to mount the engine back on the scooter and it will still work Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

can you get some small vice grips on the bolt, to hold it while you wrench it off. Simply replace the bolt if you mess up the threads.

SOURCE: timing belt broke
Did it die with a bang?
normally you will have to pull the head off but the other way is to pry or push down on all the valves and see if they all move freely and pop back up to closed,this will tell you if you have bent a stem but will not tell you if you have bent the head of the valve.
I strongly suggest removing the head because you should also inspect the top of the pistons since they are what would hit the valve,this may save you from spending time and money for nothing
