SOURCE: troy-bilt gas edger trencher won't start. Spark

Remove spark plug and pour 5mls or one teaspoon of premixed gas in the engine. Depress trottle to full with choke on "run", pull starter about 10 to 12 times If it starts and run for a while and then shuts off your carb needs servicing. If not remove muffler and look for a spark arrestor screen. This could be plugged up with soot. If it is, replace and this would have been your problem. While the muffler is off slowly pull starter rope and examine the piston if gas and oil oozes backwards as the piston moves to the top then the piston and rings need replacing.

First off, make sure the amount of oil is correct NOW. Does it start or try to? Check for oil in the air filter...if so clean or replace. Check for oil on the spark plug...if so, clean or replace. Start with the basic fixes and work your way up to the more complicated repairs
If too much oil is still in the machine,,,drain it out till it is at correct level. Do not think the engine will just burn the excess off....this can damage the engine.

How to put on new belt


https://www.partstree.com/parts/troy-bilt/edgers/tb516ec-25a-516-966-troy-bilt-edger-2011/general-assembly/


Zoom into the diagram, remove (item 45) belt cover to expose the belt and pulleys. Take note of how the belt is routed.! you will need to follow the same route with the new belt. You may need to remove the Blade guard (item 40) if the belt doesn't fit over the head of the guard. There may also be a sprung idle tension pulley, which will take up the slack in the belt once replaced. Looks pretty straight forward.

Troy Bilt edger dies as soon as its under a load--like edging my driveway.


The only real explanation for this is that a tiny piece of dirt has gotten into one of the tiny fuel jets. Remove the carb and blow it out thoroughly with compressed air.

I have a troy bilt string weed cutter 27cc TB21Ec and need to know the oil gas ratio. I just read that it takes straight gas but my cap on the weed cutter where you put the gas says gas/oil mixture


Don't know that exact trimmer, but I always run 40:1 in all my trimmers, chainsaws, etc. That is 3.2 oz. of 2 cycle oil to one gallon of gasoline. I rebuild these machines daily and run that mix in everyting, except when it's actually specified on the machine.

What kind of oil goes in crankcase


Rule of thumb for lawn and garden equipment ...

If it is 2 cycle - gas and oil are mixed - 50 to 1 mix. Some two cycle engines require more oil ... up to 32 to one.

It if is 4 cycle - has a fuel tank and a crank case - 30 weight oil SJ or better service rating.

If you want to become an expert on oil ... go here: http://www.bsehome.net/pdf/OIL_S_EG.PDF

And a final word ... it is always good to refer to the manufacturer recommendations when selecting lubricants. Troy Bilt (no longer manufactured by the Troy Bilt Company in Troy New York) uses a number of different engines on their procducts.
