Got the motor out. From the looks of it, rust caused it to seize. I'll take it to my local electric motor repair shop and see if they can salvage it.

How are those Marco injectors working? They're on my list for this winter. Any noticeable improvement?

What weight oil are you using? Mine would buzz at high temp with lighter weight oil. Switched to Mobile1 15/50 and no problems.
