    05 RXP Wont turn over

    Just picked this up, not sure whats wrong with it, previous owner said the mechanic told him it "blew up" because he ran regular gas. I hear the bendix kick in but it doesnt turn over. How do I determine if the engine is locked up, or if there is another proble, i.e starter, pump, etc. since there's no way to manually try to rotate the crank?

    Hi

    Does it turn the motor without the spark plugs in the engine?

    If it doesn't it could be a seized starter or engine.

    You can test the starter by removing it from the engine. If it clicks and turns then ...I feel sorry for you

    Crank does not budge with the plugs out. Can the starter be taken off without removing the intake??

    yes..if you have smallish hands and a little prybar to help ease the starter out. try not to drop the bolts!

    I'd pull the pump first to make sure it isn't the seized item. if the engine is blown, the pump is going to have to come off anyway.

    pull the charger out aswell. Last year at mudbug we rode with someone and the charger bearing was damAGED AND DIDN'T ALLOW THE ENGINE TO TURN OVER.
