Janked up Tomos

Joe Wiley /

yeah I have a 93 tomosttlx and it broke down last night. I try to start it and when i kick back on the pedals, they turn freely and barely kick the engine over. It must be an internal problem because i checked the gas and oil and the spark plug. It was running great and I cutoff the engine for only 10 minutes. When I tryed to start it back up thats when the pedals hardly kicked the engine and there wasnt any compression. I dont know what the hell it is. I'd like any information on that. Thanx

Any more info than this would be handy.

If the pedals freewheeled and did NOT kick the engine over, I would know what it was, but as you describe it, there's a buncha things that could be wrong.

What kinda noise is made when the pedals are kicked backwards from the cylinder, and from the transmission ?

You say it lacks compression, how did you test this ?

If the U clip broke, it wouldn't kick the engine over at all, so hopefully it's something simpler, but gonna need a wee bit more detail before I can say anything more helpful than perhaps checking to see if the head has come loose.

Or ?? This is rare, but possible.

Did the spark plug come loose ? that'd cause those symptoms.
