SOURCE: Mantis Tiller

check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

SOURCE: Mantis 2-stroke tiller won't start

This could be one of several problems...
• Last year's fuel. Get some fresh gas.
• Every 2-stroke needs a new spark plug each year... you know what that means.
• Clogged carb jets due to storing the tiller over the winter with fuel in the system. Never, ever do that. Now you'll need to pull the carb apart and clean it. Most of the orifices are so tiny you can't see them. Good luck.
• Engine is so old the crankshaft seals have hardened with age. This is one reason no 2-stroke lasts longer than about 8 years. If the seals are shot, then it will cost more to fix than a new one costs. Time to toss it.

SOURCE: 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.

Honda Tiller revs and works for 30 seconds and then shuts down.


Hello. you have some gunk in the carburator. Get a can of starter fluid or carburator cleaner aerosol and a helper. Remove the air filter and start it up. Spray a little starter fluid into the air cleaner to keep it running for three or four minutes and the problem should clear. If it does not clear the carburator will have to be disassembled, cleaned and rebuilt. j.

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!

Tiller won't stay running


If you choke or prime the engine, it starts up for a second or two and dies, the carburetor need to be cleaned/repaired.

Tiller starts then stalls


The air filter should be replaced. Also remove the old gas and put in new from the gas station. Finally, if you didn't change the spark plug from last seaon, do so as it is a small amount of cash for a lot of easy starts.
