Troy bilt horse pto clutch will not disengage

My horse III was working fine until I changed the tines. The tine lever never fully went into disengage; but, the tines would stop. Now the tines always are engaged and the lever will not move either way. Any help would be appreciated.

The problem is lack of lubrication in the pto coupling. Losen the two swing bolts carefuly,block the front under the motor. Separate the tine transmision from the housing and grease both sides with as much grease as you can work in. Work the lever as you do this. Should fix the problem.

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.

When the clutch is disengaged the tines still turn.


If you email me at fbarnes@mfa-inc.com I have a couple of Econo-Horse manuals that I downloaded that I can email to you. They don't really have a clutch just belts and pulleys so its probably just needing a new belt or a belt tension adjustment. I have a Econo-Horse tiller and it is a nice machine I think mine is about the same age as yours.

Good Luck,

Frank

Grinding when Engaing PTO for the tiller-Troy Built Horse 8hp


It's likely that your clutch needs adjustment. To adjust, you just need to loosen the two screws on the plate and slide it a bit so the clutch better engages the rear dog clutch. Have you ever taken the tiller portion off the transmission to grease the clutch? If not, before adjusting it you might want to do that. It could be that the clutch isn't sliding back far enough to engage the rear end and a little grease is all it needs. This service requirement is explained in the owners manual for the tiller. One last point, the tiller must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch. From your note, it sounded like you were engaging the clutch with the forward/reverse lever in the forward position. The lever must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch.

Troy Bilt Tiller tines do not engage


You likely have a clutch problem, never saw one that a simple adjustment would fix. I'd take off the tiller (there are two bolts that hold the tiller portion to the transmission, and check to make sure the clutch is sliding in and out. My hunch is either the lever is loose on the shaft or the allen-head little bolt that they use to shift the clutch has come out. Be sure to grease the clutch while you're in there.

This should be covered in your owners manual. Shame on them if they didn't mention this.

I have a Troy-Bilt PTO Horse (Horse III) 8HP TINES


The tines are very close to the housing and sometimes you do get rocks hitting,as for the dirt it should have side panels to keep the dirt in place.
