Question about Garden
I think you replied to this one, The pulley only goes out a little ways, and it seems the motor is seized.
Try taking the recoil cover off and with a pry bar or a big flat head screwdriver positioned in the flywheel, remove the spark plug and try to rotate the flywheel. Don't pry to hard so you dont snap fins off. If the fly wheel does rotate the the problem is the recoil, if it does not rotate then you will need to get a can of Deep Creep Seafoam from the auto parts store and spray the seafoam into the spark plug hole, while spraying it into the spark plug hole try to coat the cylinder wall with it (don't spray to much, just enough to coat the cylinder wall and just cover the top of the cylinder) let sit over night then spray it again the next day,then try to rotate the flywheel again. If it still don't rotate then you will have to pull the head off and you will have to get someone to help with this part, while one person tries to rotate the flywheel the other will have to take a hammer useing the end of the handle while holding the head of the hammer and hit on the top of the piston to force the piston free, you can also use a deadblow hammer and hit the piston with the head of the deadblow. Also if the piston is not at the top of the cylinder you want to rotate the flywheel backwards (counter clockwise).
