Dirty Hands Log Splitter engine starter rope wont pull
I have a 2-3 yr old Dirty Hands 27 Ton Log Splitter with Kohler engine. It is like new and I have used it maybe 5-10 hours total. This year, it is having an issue with gas getting into the oil. It somehow gets gasoline in the oil and I drained the oil twice and replaced it. It did start and run fine but when time came to use it again it blew smoke. Lots of smoke. I drained the oil again. Replaced it again. It started and worked fine for about half hour, then started hiccupping and stopped, it sounded like it was running out of gas. I filled gas and tried to restart it but now the pull starter rope is stuck and wont pull. Took off the shield for the rope and tried turning the round thing by hand and it wont move. Can anyone tell me where to start fixing problems? And what are the problems exactly? I dont think its under warranty anymore even though there are very few hours on it.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
