    Assuming the battery is charged and in good condition. Id start with taking the starter out. But if that looks ok then your gonna have to take the PTO cover off. If thats the case then God bless you

    Starter bendix was installed and poss could have a bit of dirt or a metal filing in it from the engine seize???? And battery is brand new and tip top condition.

    Thanks Ian

    Your flyweel-bolts are 99% sure broken. You are spinning the flyweel, but it's no longer connected to the crank. But the supercharger is connected to the flyweel, that's why it's spinning.
    Just had this happen on my friends ski... I'm waiting on parts to fix it... about $550 in parts... But you need to pull the engine to do the work.
