Over heated it and boom. Is it good when the oil boils in the crankcase? Well I am off to change a motor.

ACK! What do you think got it to the point to over heat? Were the air fins clogged with grass? Or what do you think happened?

Yep that's what it was. Its running again now, I dont know how but it starts and runs very erratically. I tore it apart yesterday and there was a mouse nest and a ton of grass and mud completely clogging ALL of the cool air. This is definitely a lesson learned that if you get something used always take to shroud and everything off and check it.

Great point! Especially when it is sitting around unused! Mice get everywhere!
