If the crank is "snapped" it can manifest it self in a few ways:

- The magneto feels loose when you grab it and you are able to "wiggle" the magneto.
But this could also be:
1. A loose nut holding the magneto in place.
2. Worn main bearing in casing just inside magneto.

- The motor will not run and is tricky to kick over as things are out of lining.
But this could also be:
1. Seized engine
2. Issues with kick start and/or clutch

I could go on, but only way to find out is by taking off cylinder. Or even better taking motor apart and check the relevant bits. A crack in the crank is hard to see. Can often be a hairline fracture.

Good Luck!

P.S. I expected your post to have a video showing what the crank did, as a pic won't tell us much. So perhaps I just could not get the video going???
