Snow blower : axle turning, no compression though...


I have had many issues with this old snowblower (Tecumseh engine, 5HP, 2 stages) but I think my mechanical world discovery is coming to end with this one.

Indeed, after some exhaust repair and carb adjustment, it worked well until a metalic noise and then nothing : now, when I pull the starter, the axle is turning freely but the piston is not moving.

Broken conrod ? what do you think ?
I am going to do a last try with some starter fluid to see if the piston can still move.

Thanks for your advice,
- Remi.

Piston not moving=broken rod- chuck it and get another engine
