RXP... Seized up?
I am familiar more with the two stroke models, so this 07 RXP is new to me.... anyways my buddy can't get it started, wanted me to look at it. It makes a noise down near the starter, but doesn't turn over at all. On a two stroke, I can pull a spark plug, and stick a long, blunt screwdriver down inside and push down on the piston to see if it's seized. I tried that on this one, couldnt do anything at all with it.... pushed and the piston wouldn't move.. so I went underneath, removed the intake grate and tried to turn the impeller shaft, and that also won't turn, even with significant force. It seems to me it's locked up.
Is there anything different about the inner workings of a 4 stroke that would make it so that the impeller can't turn when the starter isn't what's turning it? I hope this makes sense, but I am leaning toward it's locked up, so I want to make sure.
