Hello Fordlover86 and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Small Engine forum.

The most likely problem, we hope, is there is something else attached to the engine which may be causing the lockup. You'll need to explore this possibility first if not done already.

It could be the starter motor, a dead or weak battery. A belt pulley, pump, fan, clutch, etc. if equipped.

Should it be the engine, try removing the spark plug or plugs, adding an ounce of oil into the cyclinders and allowing the oil time <several hours> to loosen any stuck rings, etc.

While the oil is working, explore the other mentioned possiblities.
