Locked down motor

Unfortunately it sounds like you threw a connecting rod in other words a blown motor. The connecting rod has become disconnected from the crankshft and is jammed up between the case and the crank itself, the engine must be dissasembled and rebiult.

just trace the spark plug wire to the coil but you can check the spark by putting a new plug in the wire and make sure it is grounded and turn the engine over if you have spark then you have to pull the fly wheel off and check the fly wheel key

The mower is a cub cadet it usually runs fine until warm and will die start idling up and down and then die every now and then pop like back will start right back if you lift the choke i changed...

I had the same problem , found out it was the coil was getting hot. I replaced the coil which was not hard , remove 2 screws an unhook 2 wires. You have to get the coil from a dealer , in my area anyway. Hope this helped.
