Lawn Boy Help

Wife trying to help filled mower with non oiled gas. Mower naturally got hot and stopped. I let it cool for a while and figured it had sheared the flywheel key, tore apart and that is not the case where do I go now??

If it was filled with straight gas & got hot & stopped, I think from here you should go to the closest hardware store that has lawn mowers on sale. Sorry, The 2 stroke won't surive with out oil in the gas,,, Roger

I agree...if it's locked up, it's probably beyond economically feasable repair.
