96 XLT machine started to bogging down, then it died. Can't even pull string to try and start it the clutch is fully relaxed and I don't have any idea what happened if any one has any suggestion please let me know
You mean you can pull the pull cord its seized?That sounds like a seized motor to me.Or if your really lucky it could be your belt jammed in the clutch.Remove your belt and try turning to shaft by hand either way to see if it turns.If it dont turn you have a seized motor $$$$$$$$$$Good luck
It does sound like a seized motor... although a lot of the time a siezed motor doesn't slowly bog down either. There are many things that could be wrong, but as you describe it, it sounds like the motor is seized.
