hard to pull generator motor

I have a 6hp generator that ran fine till it just shut off without warning. With the spark plug in, it is very hard to pull the starter at all. It will turn but barely. I take the plug out and it free wheels great. I thought possibly the shear pin broke but it appears to be fine. Any thoughts?

Sounds like the cylinder is flooding with gas. Is the spark plug wet? Does gas come out of the plug hole when you try it without the plug in it?
