Was in the middle of cutting the lawn and something let go in the motor and started shaking the entire mower like crazy. Definitely the engine as I shut off the blades and it was still doing it. Immediately shut it down. I'm guessing the motor is toast, but anyone have some troubleshooting ideas to look at. Any chance it's rebuildable, and how hard is it?. It's a Bronco rider, tractor itself is in great condition

Probably had a counter balance link to break. You won't know what the damage was done until you open up the engine's crankcase.

Probably try to find a teardown video on youtube... and start disassembling it
