when i pull on the pull corf it will pull about six inches then lock up. i took the cover ver the cord box off where the flywheel was and there was no oil. could that be the reason it will not start. any suggestions will help. i think i got stuck on this trade.

cover

I never had a 335 but I dont think there should be oil under the rope start cover. your problem could be the rope start which should be a easy fix compared to something more sinister.

no and when i took the pull cover off the cord pulled all the way out. i believe the flywheel is locked up. and it will not electric start. When you press the start button itll act like its gona start for a bout half a second then it sounds like something is locked. i appreciate the help ive ever owned a polaris before.

Ok, pull the spark plug (s) out, then try starting. Also with the plugs out look down into the cyclinder if possible to see if there's anything in it. I'd bet you got a bent valve. Sorry!

+1 on bent or valves in need of adjustment. The valves on an opposed twin lawn tractor I used to own made it really hard to start after about 450 hrs. Come to find out the valves just needed to be adjusted.

is that something i can do or do i need to take it to someone?
There is a procedure in the OEM polaris service manual (find one to download on ebay usually 5-10$).

I have personally never done it. Probably not that hard to do, just have to remove a bunch of stuff to get to the top of the engine.

Spend the $60, it'll save you a lot of time and headaches. And most times it'll save you extra work. I believe everyone should own a manual on their machine,even if it's just for maintence scheduals.
