    I have a Grubee Skyhawk 66cc. I have a 36 tooth chain sprocket so it's not unusual to lose power on steep hills. I was climbing a long hill yesterday and experienced that gradual loss of power to the point where I had to help it and pedal. I got to the top of the hill and the motor stalled out. On attempting to restart, when I let the clutch out my rear wheel locked up and wouldn't turn. I tightened the clutch cable, I loosened the clutch cable, I adjusted my flower nut one notch looser, nothing worked. I pedaled home. I don't know whether I toasted my clutch or my engine, thinking it's my motor. Okay wizards, please and thank you, what say you? And of course suggestions for the repair are appreciated. ride safe

    first, take out the spark plug and see if the engine turns - if not, take off the covers and look for things stuck somewhere

    you could pedal, so it isnt the chain bunched up in the sprocket.

    locked solid after losing power...always a bad sign. nothing rattled, nothing crunched?

    i fear the worst...
