Older model earthquake rear tine tiller won't start

I have an older model earthquake rear tine tiller. It has been sitting for about three months. I tried startign it today, but had no luck. I can't tell if it's getting enough gas. I put new gas in it and checked the spark plug. I thought that I may have to clean the carb. Any help is appreciated.

Check for a clogged air filter.Try starting it without the air filter installed. Check for loose wires to the spark plug and ground. I am assuming there is gas in the tank, but does it get to the carb? Check the gas line, is it blocked? Is the carb leaking?

My Earthquake Rear Tine Gas Rototiller - 196cc Viper Engine 4-cycle just makes a squeeling noise and tines won't rotate.


Sounds like the belt is slipping. Have you removed the belt cover and inspected the belt and the tensioner pulley ? If your model is like mine the tension can be adjusted just below the handles by looseneing the nut where the cable goes into the cable sheath and moving the cable cover further away from the handle. That takes up some slack and will make the tensioner pulley tighter on the belt. If the belt is shot tension isn't going to help.
Try "google" with "earthquake 5070 manual" first option should be a PDF copy of a model 5070 manual. Will have diagrams on how to adjust the cables.

Yes, there are shear pins on the tines and on the wheels. Can you check to see if the belt actually moves when the pulleys turn?

I googled Earthquake 5020DM tiller and show a site that has a technical manual. It has the diagrams and parts numbers. It looks like the forward and reverse cable are the same. You may have to call ARDISAM direct to get the cable.
