Mower Briggs and Straton
Something seems to be grinding near the top of the mower. It was working last week, now all of the sudden, the cutoff bar is stuck. It wont spring back like it normally would to shut down the engine. When I manually turn the mower blade, I hear a type of grinding noise metal to metal at the top of the engine. I tried to pull the starter cord, it will rewind back but there is definite metal resistance. I didnt want to try more than once as to not cause more damage to the mower.
Thank you for your help.
