Riding Mower Won't Start After Hitting Gravel

I have a Yard Machine 48" cut. My father-in-law was using it and hit some gravel. Now it won't start, but putts and turns over. Can anyone help me?

Check the crank shaft first. It is is bent, they are designed for them not to start as a safety feature. Then, check your throttle and cable and fuel line. Most likely the crack shaft came uncentered from the flywheel and needs to be lined back up to the cotter pin.

The gravel probably bent the crankshaft :/

You could have bent or broken blades.
