Did you check the plug for a hot blue spark?
Did you drain the carb to make sure there are no contaminates?
Clean air filter?
Correct oil level?
Try a squirt of gas into the carb to prime it.
If your tiller has sat for any length of time it may have stale gas and the spark plug may need replacing (not just cleaning). Always make sure all wiring and or connections are clean. You can check for spark by removing spark plug, insert it back into spark plug wiring, using a WOOD clothes pin to hold the wire, hold spark end of spark plug (holding the clothes pin only) on metal casing on machine, pull starter cord and check for spark. If you don't use a non conductive instrument such as the clothes pin you will get a nasty shock. If you have no spark it is time to change the plug. Always put your safety first! Hope this helps! Have a great day! If this doesn't work perhaps you will need more information.
Hi anon, if it's starting your 2/3rds of the way there. You have fuel and spark. Try and clean the air filter first and if that fails to keep it running then check that the choke isn't staying out. If all thats ok then it may be the carb gaskets.
Make sure your air filter is clean and you are using brand new petrol. If you left old petrol in it it may have clogged up the carb. It sound like no fuel is getting to the spark plug. If you have a rubber priming bulb, press it slowly and regularly to try and keep the engine going once you have it started on starting fluid. Good luck.
did it run out of gas when you added gas it could be that the fuel line has plugged up with something from the bottom of the tank take the fuel line off and try blowing threw it and take a air hose and blow out the carb and carb cleaner
Could a gas/oil mix been used by mistake. When you cleaned carb did you also clean dusty air filter?? Try leaveing off filter first and run. Are you sure you are in "choke position" when engines seems to be running ok,be sure to double check yourself here. If engine runs ecelleant in "choke" sounds like your in "Run" position and positioning is problem not performance.
