yeah sounds like something is ***** up it looks like it takes no effort to pull so that kinda makes me wonder if the valve springs are toast it isnt even making a put put sound like its pulling air and stuff

thats what i thought. and by the way the output pully keeps spinning for a bit after he pulls it, leads me to believe there isnt any compression

diagnosis is a thrown rod. did a reudimentary compression test by removing the sparkplug and there was nothing there. so i pulled the head and pulled, the piston didnt move. i pushed it to dead bottom, and tried pulling and it locked up. so like i said, thrown rod. however, i DID find a peerless 3 speed gearbox which i will be removing in the spring and will be for sale. send me a PM if interested.
