9 HP Briggs and Statton lawn mower engine

I have a snapper rear engine riding lawn mower, the dip stick tube popped out and drained the oil out while I was mowing and the engine is now locked up. What do I need to do to fix this problem. Is the motor shot or what. Thanks

its best if you put 2 cycle engine oil down the spark plug hole while it is still hot.

Im guessing you didnt and it cooled down already. so i would put some 2 stroke down the spark plug hole, let it sit for a while, then slowly turn the flywheel and see if it breaks loose. work it in a bit, then let it sit for a bit until that oil drains out of the cylinder and do a compression test. that will be your molment of truth.
