Arians Snow blower engine 11 HP

I have an Arians snow blower with Tecumseh engine.
I couldn't get it started and after many try's the engine will not budge. It's locked up and I can't pull start it or use the electric start.
I changed oil and used a maintenance kit to spray a special lube in the spark plug hole, changed the spark plug as well.
Is it seized and how do I un seize it?
HELP!!!!!!!!

Remove the spark plug and pour 1 cup of Marvel Mystery oil down the plug hole. Let it set for a dy, the put a soket on the bolt on the belt pulley and try to free it. Be careful not to loosen the bolt.

Arians snowblower reply to indypower1

Hi indypower1
Thanks for the tip but i found out that the electric starter motor broke off about 5 or six gear teeth.
I am thinking that the metal pieces are wedged in the main gear inside right behind the pull starter.
Do you think this why i cannot budge it to turn it over?
Appreciate the help buddy!!

That is most likely the culprit. Now comes the hard part. Getting the pieces out. You will have to remove the fan housing (the part that hold the recoil on). Then you should also remove the flywheel to make noe no pieces got in behind it.
