So last night I went over to the neighbor to help him with his tractors. He has a Ford, closed side, I forget the number, with an unidentified K series kohler. He was mowing when it gave a cloud of smoke and died. Now there is zero compression. We can spin the it with one finger.
He thought that it broke a rod, but there was no loud noise when it died. I am wondering if the valve would be stuck open, could that cause this?
I am thinking of opening it up for him just to see if I can fix it. Just not sure where to start looking.
