Default savage locks up

Got it out to run today and once it warmed up it stopped. It wont roll backwards, and the starter wont turn it over. Anyone know what it might be. Once it cooled down I could start it again, but as soon as it got warmed up it locked up again.

check the clutch , take it apart and inspect everything, sounds like you have a spring or something getting caught inbetween the shoes and the clutch bell. if the engine was merely flooding you would be able to push the truck backwards, forcus on the clutch, and good luck-scott

I think you are right Steed. I forgot to mention that the clutch bell looked slightly tilted. Will check that out later today. Thanks for everyone's replys
