Had a major issue this weekend. My 35 Johnson Tiller 2001 was running fine an then all of a sudden started slipping. I pulled over and replaced the prop and then the pull cord was locked. I removed the plastic cap and shifter rod thought I had it figured out, no prevail. I even attached a rope straight to the top of the crank on could not budge it. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Try removing your spark plug, if head gasket is bad water can get into the cylinder and it won't compress like air.

Likely seized the piston though, taking out spark plug may show metal filings on it.

Good luck.
