How exactly did you find it was "stuck alittle"? Sounds like your "stuck alittle" turned into "really stuck" (aka seized)..

Anyway, check the battery, should have at least 11.5 volts for motor to run.

After you find out that's fine, take off the belt and turn over the motor by hand by the clutch. It should turn smoothly, and you should run into 6 compression strokes per revolution. No scraping, or binding, grinding or sticky spots.
