I got my 511b out of the shed, it started ok. After planting a small sweetcorn patch. The tractor couldn"t pull itself up a steep hill. It just started to lose power. I heard no strange noises. I shut it down when I noticed it seemed a little hot and smoke was coming out the breather cap on top of the engine. Now it won"t start or even turn over. It"s like something is bound up in the engine. Can"t turn it over to get a compression check. Any Ideas???
