I am not sure either, but I think that it would be alot cheeper to buy a new tiller, than to use your strenght fixing a old tiller that you didn't bother to keep the instructions for (no, I am not trying to be harsh. I am trying to be nice. and I am not sure about it coming with instructions, they usually do.)

Here is a link that may help. (IDK, because it is blocked where I am at.)

SOURCE: Tine shaft removal for mantis 2 cycle tiller

Hi! I had the same problem last month. Contacted Mantis customer support. Below is the info they gave me Removing Worm Gear Place transmission in a vise with housing cover facing up and drive shaft to the left. Clamp brass worm gear so it cannot move and turn the tine shaft counter clockwise to remove; the shaft is threaded into gear, not pressed. The tine shaft is one solid piece and has right-hand threads. As it comes out of the housing, the bearings, seals & retainers will fall out with the tine shaft. Removing the Worm Shaft Take out the retaining clip at the lower end of the transmission; remove the drive shaft from the top end of the transmission. Place a rod that is longer than the drive shaft into the top of the transmission. Tap gently, and the worm shaft will fall into the cavity of the transmission housing. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: MTD Series 410 rear tine tiller. Tines won't engage.

As much as I hate to admit it, I have one in my shop I have been working on for a friend. Like ehertig_cwc shows in his picture of the shifter forks they can and do bend. The part i hate to admit is I have been unable to fix this one. Yeah, the shifter forks were bent and the pins worn to nothing. I repaired that and put it back together and I'm sure some of you how long that takes. It worked for about 20 minutes and I lost all shift detents. I have studied and studied that drive shaft shifter section and for the life of me I have been unable to determine what keeps the dang detent ball from rotating and getting into the shafts keyed section. As soon as it does, you loose or soon will loose shifting as the clutch just floats around in there. I have two MTD service manuals and neither on shows this drive shaft apart or how to assemble it. I think it is magic how it works. Other than this part I find the gearbox pretty easy to work on.

The serial number should be on the shaft that goes from engine to the tiller. It is hard to read if there is any rust. Clean the area with alcohol or brake clean. If its difficult still, put a white piece of paper over this shaft and lightly scribble over the paper with a pencil. You may be able to read the numbers. Good luck!

I have a very old Wizard (Western Auto) Front Tine Rototiller Model gis 6990 A27 with power reverse. I am looking for a manual or a diagram of the drive belt routing. (Patent #2903077). Any assistance...

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Here is a picture of the belts installed.
NOTE the front fwd direction drive belt / closest to the motor is installed like any other belt. The rear belt for REVERSE direction has 1/2 twist. The idler pulley presses in for foward driving and pulls out against the reverse drive belt.

This should be what you need.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

How do you start the Huskee Rototiller 190CC? My

Yes, the engine is identical to the ones used on several lawnmowers and the safety bar must be held in against the handle to enable it to start. Releasing it while running will kill the engine.

Rototiller engine in a go-kart?

Yes. They are horizontal shaft, and the performance (rpm, power, throttle response) of any horizontal shaft 4-stroke engine is going to be pretty much the same. They also have a governor, which you might want to disable or not, depending on the age of your driver.

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.
