I am in need on line of the owners manual for troybilt "8-hp Horse" tiller and fluid capacities and type/weight of oil used in front transmission and rear tine gears. Thank you, Sincerely, Wm....


This is as close as I could come to your exact model from this site. This is for a 8HP Briggs Horse model with rear tines. I hope this can help you. This site (the manuals site) needs to update to newer models. First a link to the site I use and secondly, the PDF online file of the 8 HP Tiller for you.

I am currently looking at buying a troybilt horse with serial # 340455. Can someone let me know what year this is?


That tiller was made sometime between 7/1/78 and 1/1/79. This is the Horse II model and is a four speed one belt tiller. The Horse I was a two speed two belt tiller. These are very good tillers if they have been reasonably taken care of.

I HAVE A 8HP HORSE TROYBILT TILLER. I CAN NOT GET ANY GAS INTO THE CARB. I HAVE CLEAN GAS, NEW HOSES, AND CLEANED THE CARB. THE FLOAT IS NOT STUCK, ANY HELP?


have you checked to make sure your fuel shut off valve is turned on? If you remove the fuel line at the tank( with something to catch the gas) and your fuel shut off is turned on and you get no flow then something is clogging the fitting at the tank or inside the tank. You will have to remove and clean the tank. Let me know how you come out.

What is the easyist way to change belt on older troybilt horse tiller without pulling motor


You dont need to pull the motor ... in fact if you do , that will not help you. We are talking about a genuine Troy, right? Bujilt in Troy not Cleveland.

At most, you will have to remove th reverse disk.

Take off the off the old belt(s) (mine 6 hp Horse is a older two belt drive). You must be in neutral. Pull the belt off the back of the engine pulley and down to give you slace to get it off the transmission pulley then pull it away.

It is very easy to say and a llittle harder to do but not as hard as you think, believe me. I have 2 belts and have replaced them several times.

I have a horse model about 35 years old with a kohler motor 7 horse. What new motor fits. serial no. 360331


In my opinion, (which doesn't count for much, I know) the 7hp Kohler Troy Bilt Horse tiller was the best tiller ever made. Those tillers lasted forever if they were taken care of. I've got one of the 8hp Kohler versions, but it's just not the same.

It's become a lot harder to find an engine to replace these engines. You'll most certainly want to go to a Briggs and Stratton dealer and have them look it up. You need a 3/4" crank, 2 7/8" long with a keyway, tapped for a bolt to hold on the pulley and reverse disc. IF you find an engine to fit, you'll likely need to have a custom throttle cable made up to replace the current one. A good small engine dealer should be able to help you.

Now for the bad news. The 7hp Kohler was a cast iron engine. Any replacement engine you find will likely be an aluminum block with a cast iron sleeve and therefore, much lighter. What this means is the balance of the tiller, from front to back, is going to be thrown off. The result is - it will be MUCH harder to pick up the rear of the tiller when you want to turn at the end of the garden. You will most likely need to either put on one of the bumpers (if you can find one to fit) or figure out a way to hang some weight on the engine. I've seen people do some creative things to get the balance back. Whatever you do, it just won't be the same as that great 7hp Kohler. I'd suggest trying to rebuild it - if possible!

the pully teeth that you are tallking about can easily be sprayed with WD-40 or equivellant. Than keep working it and it WILL eventually come loose. I have worked with small engines for 10 years. This should solve the problem
