Hello everyone, I recently put together a 49cc 4 stroke kit I bought online and after about an hour of off and on use the clutch exploded. After buying a new clutch I put it in and after a few more minutes of riding the engine started running REALLY rough. I left it in the shop for a day and when I went to work on it I noticed that the engine would not budge with the pull string. So I took the starting assembly off the front and used a bar of steel to turn the engine until it "broke loose" I tried starting it afterwards and it ran for a few seconds and subsequent times starting it have resulted in a REALLY rough idle for a few seconds. Any thoughts on what could have happened? And yes, it does have oil in it. Thank you in advance for the help

Well I figured it out today. Turns out the bolt that held the bell into the transmission had come off and was rattling around the clutch. Fixed and running. Thanks for all the overwhelming help........
