Question about Gcv160 Gas Engine
I serviced the mower before use checking the spark plug and replacing the oil and checking the filter. It fired on fourth pull. I cut my back lawn. Now, post fuel problem the blade will not turn although there was some movement initially. I have not tilted the mower the wrong way. I have removed the pull from the mounting and it works fine. I have not hit anything.
Yep, it's me again. Seeing that you were mowing so much tall grass, I'm sure that a good bit of it was still wet. Wet grass builds up under the mower and once dry, becomes hard. If you stopped using the mower long enough for all that grass to dry, there's a chance that the build up of it, is stopping the blade from turning. Have you had a chance to check under there yet?
You can use a putty knife or something like that, to scrape all the dried grass from underneath the mower. Any build up under there, that touches the blade, will slow down or even stop the blade from turning. Just a shot in the dark.
I hope we can figure this thing out pretty soon. I'm running out of ideas! LOL!!! Have a great weekend and good luck. By the way... I'd be happy to come mow your yard for you. I'll wait out on the front porch for you to come pick me up. LOL!

It sounds like the engine may have seized. If you have the plug removed, try to turn the blade itself. If it doesn't move then it makes a seized engine more plausible.

Remove spark plug and try it if gas blows out you have a carb problem rather sounds like the fuel has leaked and filled the cylinder . means float is sticking in the carb .

Testimonial: "I have had petrol where the spark plug is and I have taken the carb off and checked the float. I have now put it all back together but I am unable to deploy the cord to see if it works. I cannot understand why the cord will not deploy post leak."
