SOURCE: I have a Troy Bilt Bronco 5.5 hp that will start

Sounds like fuel starvation

Check / remove carby / strip down / check for blocked jets for contamination.

Check spark is present.

Is correct heat range

SOURCE: troy-bilt horse engiine runs good , tines work,

The wheel shaft on a Horse tiller is one piece so if the shaft turns on one side it will turn on the other. make sure the pin that holds the wheel on is not missing that would let it spin on the shaft.
That's the only thing I can think of that would cause that problem. Hope that helps.

Troy bilt hasn't been used in 2yrs.; has oil and gas in it but will not electric or pull cord start...

1st I would drain the gas and put new in. It loses octane over time. Then try new spark plug. Also you may need a new diaphram in the carburetor. They are cheap and sell them at most hardware stores.

Troybuilt cultivator/edger won't start

There are two starting procedures - initial starting after long storage or running out of gas calls for squeezing the bulb (note - squeezing the sides together - not pressing the bulb in) 6 times, poulling cord up to 10 tiimes, rapid pull. If that doesn;'t work, wait 15 minutes, do not press bulb, but pull cord 10 times again.

Normal starting after first use and w/gas in the tank calls for 2 presses of the bulb.

I found that I was not priming the engine well, but also it should not be as much of a pain as it is. I still am successful in starting on every third attempted use, get frustrated and say %*&% it most of the time. These things are made by MTD (for Troy-Bilt) and that, in my experience, stands for Machine Typically Dead.

Hope this helps.
