I was turning around a corner when suddenly my engine just slowly died. I was not lugging it because I had the clutch in and now when I try to start it the engine is turning over but it seems like it is not pushing anything, it just sits and whines, you can turn the pulley by 1 hand. I don't hear any banging or anything just the starter.

Any Ideas??

First guess... fuel... check pump, carb, jets, etc... Possibly a fue line came off (they usually arent clamped on (CLAMP THEM ALL). Fuel sounds like the most likely culprit.

Dude I don't mean to be the barer of bad news, but when I blew some rings it did that, you would crank it and it would just spin, not chug, mis-fire at all. Compression Check! Good Luck!!!!! Hopefully I am wrong.

do the compression check. especially if you can turn the crank with one hand.
