Tecumseh snowblower flywheel wont budge Poulan Pro snowblower
Original Message   Nov 17, 2015 6:00 pm
I was prepping my 2010 snowblower today. Changed the oil, oiled spark plug. Started the snowblower fine and then after 5min it shut down and tried to start it again but pull cord wasn't releasing and electric starter wasn't either. Figured out the flywheel is not moving at all.

   You've probably figured it out by now but for reference the issue could be a mouse nest under the
cowling jamming the flywheel gears.   Happens often in the engine or drive compartments.

   The engine rod can break without noise and jam the internals freezing the flywheel.
