     Country Equipment does not handle Troy bilt parts. 1909702 is no longer available. If I could get a drawing of it I could make my own?

The coil needs to be just close enough not to rub. Wrap a piece of hard copper wire on the threads of the plug and ground the other end to the engine. Pull the handle and watch for spark.

Do you need to be an authorised repairer, to replace the spark plugs on your petrol models of lawnmowers or chainsaws

Hi Donna,

No, changing the spark plug is quick and easy. No need to go before the committee.

You will need some deep sockets and a ratchet (Plugs come in 5/8", 3/4" and 13/16").

They get HOT. So if it's been running, let it cool.

Pull the plug wire
Unscrew the old one.
Screw in the new one
plug in the wire

Thats it

Where is the model number on my troybilt rear tine tiller?

If it's as old as mine (circa 1976), it's stamped on the casting right below the T-handle that allows the handle bars to pivot (also the gear case fill cap)

Item: Mantis Tiller Problem: wire to kill switch came loose from where it attaches under the cowling covering the engine. Question: where does it attach, I need to reconnect it


The Shut Off Wire is Attached to the Ign Coil.
There is a Spade Lug on the Coil that the Wire Attaches to.
Hope this Helps.

Good Luck
