Thanks for the tip...poor memory...even posted in that thread...below is a quote from that post.
"8,500 miles is a lot of mileage and you are lucky it only seized...mine blew a piston at 8,800 damaging the cylinder, crank and cracking the case. (chunk of piston got pushed out the bottom of case by spinnig crank)
Rebuilding the top end is not enough...split the case and have your crank inspected...you should upgrade the PTO bearing.
Sorry to agree with everyone else, you got screwed."
