I assume you are pulling on your recoil to try and start your sled.

Is there still a clutch on the engine? Can you turn it?

Is there any oil left in your resevoir? I wonder if there was a fire if all your oil would have leaked out. If there has been no oil in your sled for that length of time it may be ceased.

Good luck.

drop some thin oil down the spark plug holes and take the carbs off and put some oil in there, give it some time and hit the end of the clutch bolt with a hammer, and see what happens and see if it will turn over. In reality it might start up and run great with no issues, but if rust has started to develop on the bearings it may just rip them apart and you will need a rebuild anyways.


good luck,

I would pull the exhaust manifold off & look in the ports. You should see the cyls or even the pistons, have a look for rust.

An old trick for unsticking stuck engines is to pour some diesel fuel down the jugs and let time do its thing. Inching the crank back and forth by the clutch bolt may gain you some movement but take it slowly. Chances are if your pistons stuck from rust, you crank bearing are probably rust spotted too.
