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: Yardman Rear Tine Tiller tines won't turn. Belt

The problem lies in the shift lever in the gearbox. A poor initial design that was upgraded twice. The shift fork arms have spread enough for pins to come out of the groove they run in when the tiller is shifted to the last position. (Bending back into position would only be a temporary fix as would not be any stronger.) To replace shift lever, the gearbox cover has to be opened. Seperating the cover can be somewhat challenging. When prying cover apart try to not damage the cover gasket. Gearbox grease is very thick, so gasket's real purpose is to keep water and contaminants out. Leave all gearing and chains in place. The shift lever part number is 618-0245B. Or use assembly kit number 753-0869 (contains shift lever 618-0245B, position indicator, and roll pin.) Part will run in the $56-$68 range and can be found through MTD as well as Cub Cadet. Also can get through Sears PartsDirect.

Your worm shaft or tine shaft and gear assembly are probably shot. Welcome to the club. Long live American manufacturing.

SOURCE: tiller tines won't turn where put in gear.

The spring goes in first followed by the ball. The ball should not get in the key way because that is filled by the slider pins that go up into the spur gear that drives the tines. Actually the slider pins drive all of the gears by engaging different gears as the gear collar is moved up and down. The detent spring and ball is the mechanism that is supposed to hold the the clutch collar in place. Mine jumps out of gear when tilling any depth except very shallow. I have reinforced the shifting forks and replaced the pins on the end of it. I believe that the pins wear and the arms spread because i have to keep pressure on the shifting rod or it will jump out of gear when tilling. Even with the reinforcing, pressure on the shifting rod will wear out the pins on the shifting arm. This will be my 3rd reassembly and I am leaning toward the detent spring being weak and allowing the shifting collar to move too easily. I may order an new spring and ball and see if that helps. I am getting pretty good at taking it apart.

Snowblower wheels will not move freely when drive is disengaged & and wheels will not turn when drive control engaged.


Check the drive shaft bushings if they are worn the gears are probably binding and this creates the problem you are having.

Rear auger turns front auger not turning


From your information above, it sounds like a broken gear or tooth on the auger gearbox. (this could happen if you hit an object and your shear pin did not break, instead breaking your gear) Hope this helps.

When in gear right wheel drives left wheel is locked and will not move same when not engaged


Many snowblowers use pins (or bolts - see image below) that pass thru the shoulder of the rim of the tires thru a hole drilled thru the drive shaft. Removing both of the pins allows the tires to spin freely on the drive shaft and makes it much easier to push, pull and turn the snowblower. If they are not installed again, the machine will not "drive" and make clearing snow difficult to do. Installing only one will make the machine want to go in circles. Make sure you have these pins installed thru BOTH rim shoulders and drive shafts - locked in place. Other machines lock the tires in other ways - since it sounds like one side is working correctly - you should compare the two tires / rims and make them both look like the one that works properly. Good luck!

The motor runs but the tines no longer turn


Does the drive shaft turn and the tines just spin around it ? if not then on the drive shaft there is a gear box and you need to open that up (without the machine plugged in) and check to see why the gears aren't meshing properly.

Drive shaft spinning and it will not go into gear.


If you put your cycle in gear and the drive shaft spins, but the motorcycle does not move, you probably have stripped worm gears in the final drive housing. Take off the large fill cap on the side of the final drive housing and inspect the large gear visually. It is probably cheaper to buy a final drive assembly and replace the whole unit than to pay the labor and parts to rebuild it. ($700 for the 1100, $850 for the 650)

It appears that the gear case on your model is not capable of being serviced. The cost is over 300 dollars. There is a shear pin or similar connection in the case where the shaft connects to the pulleys. It has broken off and the shaft has no torque now.

I have an Ariens 926LE snowblower. The blower spins but the auger spins slowly. It barely throws snow. Some times the auger stops spinning. Shear pins are fine.


Hi, The blower spins at full speed? If it does the belt, pulley, and shaft are good. Look at the shaft from the fan to the gear box while it's running and that shaft should be turning at the speed of the fan.
If the blower spins at full speed and the auger doesn't the most likely problem is the worm gear transmission from the blower shaft to the auger shaft.
A good way to visually inspect this is: With the machine turned off and the spark plug wire unhooked go to the front and try to rotate the auger by hand. If the gear box is good you will only be able to move the auger less than an inch. If the box is bad you will be able to move the auger a lot farther. While you are there recheck your shear pins.
You can also remove the blower drive belt and have someone turn the pulley by hand while you watch the auger. Put resistance on the auger with your gloved hand. If the box is good the auger will move smoothly in you hand. If it is bad, it will ****, move roughly, or stop.
While the other person is turning the pulley and you have some resistance on the auger look closely at the shaft running from the gearbox back to the blower. On some models there is a connecting sleeve and the roll pin that connects the sleeve to the shaft and gearbox will break.
If the gearbox is bad, it will have to be replaced as a complete unit.

Tiller tines will not turn. Engine runs fine...


Well hopefully it's not the transmission, as sometimes these tend to go. Another common but cheaper repair are the two bearings where the tines connect to the unit.

MORE THAN LIKELY.. The bearing is located above the worm gear housing, the part connected to the tines beneath the guard. This removal can be somewhat frustrating but if you remove it and remove the engine flange you'll be able to manually spin the drive shaft and see if it's the worm gear housing/lower bearings or if it's the more likely bearing on the clutch drum or the clutch itself.

Tine shaft removal for mantis 2 cycle tiller


Put the tiller in a vise clamping on the bottom of worm gear housing. Remove worm gear housing cover. Clamp the worm gear at the top with a vise grip (I think Kuya Jon is correct in that you could skip this step because the transmission won't move when unscrewing, but I did it anyway just in case). Put a pipe wrench on the left tine shaft and unscrew it like it was a normal bolt. It's in there tight and it will take some force. When I unscrewed mine, the left bearing seal retainer, left bearing seal, and left bearing all came out with it. I just needed to replace the seals. I went to the right side, and with a screw driver carefully pried out the retainer. Then it's easy to just pull out the right seal with your finger. Put a new right seal in and insert the right retainer. Make sure the retainer is facing the correct way. I used a block of wood to tap mine in once I had it positioned because I was afraid to hit the retainer with a hammer. Now I put the tine shaft back in while holding the worm gear with the vise grip. Screw the shaft as far as it will go by hand and then go the rest of the way with a pipe wrench. Now came the tricky part. The right bearing did not slide right in. There was some resistance. I had to use a 1/2" threaded pvc pipe (not sure it needs to be threaded but that's what worked for me) longer than the tine shaft that was sticking out. I slip the pipe over the shaft against the bearing and tapped with a hammer. This drove the bearing in all the way. It needs to go in far enough to leave room for the seal and retainer. The plastic pvc allowed for this. Now put the right seal in. If the outer edge of the seal is only flush with the housing you did not tap the bearing in far enough. I made this mistake on my first try and tried to force the retainer in. Take it from me. It won't work. You will end up ordering another retainer to replace the one you mangled. Once in properly I slid the retainer over the shaft and then put a washer over that to tap against. The block of wood doesn't work on this side because the shaft is in the way. I used my pvc pipe again to tap against the washer and, wala, it worked like a charm. I hope this helps someone. All the other posts really helped me. Thanks!
