garrett burleigh Last time i ran my tractor was february 2016 it started up and idled fine i plawed some snow with it.
I tried to start it the other day (now its warm out) and with the block heater plugged in and the 1 year old 6v batteries fully charged all i got was a click near the starter. My real concern is the engine being seized. I was wondering how to check to find out if the engine was indeed seized. I have scowered the web and cant find much, one thing i heard is turn the crankshaft pully by hand, or put a wrench on the crankshaft and use a breaker bar, but i cant find a nut on the crankshaft, the radiator fan turns? is that a good sign?

ponymare The fan turns because the belt slips, that's normal in most cases. If its a manual transmission, put it in high gear, then with the switch off, rock the tractor forward and watch the fan, if it turns, the engines not stuck. Sitting after moving snow, the battery cables may be loose, corroded or even bad. If you find the engine loose, start with the simple things, cables and wires.
