And lines,when I took carb. off I noticed loose cb w no eclip and missing 1 bearing and from what I've read it prob exploded.after pulling engine noticed spring laying under cb was half broke in 1spot.I took off cb,screw that holds flywheel and cone @this point crankshaft was turning ok.w carb pulled i put wd 40 intake and pulled glow plug and sprayed some in top off engine.crankshaft turned a bit then stopped?did I cause a vac type lock?I bought 2 used traxxas nitro trucks cpl yrs ago that ended up having rusted engines besides working on those reading alot ,I'm new to nitro?thanks for any help,and sorry for long post.thanks

    If you had the glow plug out you could not hydro-lock the engine. It is very difficult to spin the engine over by just the crankshaft through top dead center and this is due to the design of the sleeve which is tapered at the top.
    Sounds like you need a new clutch, bearings, washer and e-clip. While the clutch bell is off clean it up with some very fine (800 grit or higher) sand paper and flush clean. Then reinstall.
