Need schematic for Craftsman rototiller

I'm looking for a repair manual or an exploded view of the drive and tiller components on a 6 HP Craftsman rototiller with counter rotating tines. I have model, serial and stock no.s available if required.

    Thanks MrFixIt-jerr, I went to sears.com and entered my model no. but it came back with "no matches found". I'm just trying to determine if there is any practical method (or need) of occassionally greasing the drive chain, inside the enclosed housing, without completely disassembling the tiller body. There appears to be a very small grease relief hole on one of the sides, above the "thru shaft" location, but there isn't anything that allows for additional grease to be applied. Do you know if these tillers are designed to be maintenance free for life in regards to drive chain and sprockets? Thanks.

    Hi MrFixIt, I'm not entirely sure, but I thought that you had replied to someone else with a similar question (I got your contact information from a response you made to them) that the chain in the tiller drive mechanism was factory "greased". I checked both sides thoroughly for a fill and drain plug and the only thing I found were the long bolts that hold the housing sides together and the small relief hole. I'd say the hole might be large enough for a medium to large syringe needle to fit through. There did also appear to be some sort of carrier shaft that I could see only the very outer face of which would make sense as a filler hole but there was no way of removing or depressing that item.

the tines are usually connected with shear bolts designed to break away when u hit something as a safety precaution so that u dont break anything in the transmission. its common that people dont know this and replace them with normal bolts. if this was done and the tines are not moving now chances are uve got a snapped gear shaft

Belt drive diagram for ford rt5


Exploded view of rototiller available at New Holland website.. Area with decals has belt path diagram.
http://partstore.agriculture.newholland.com/us/parts-search.html#epc::mr55011ar111419
Belt goes around motor pulley and tiller pulley and above idler pulley, which is in the middle. When putting belt on, it is easiest to put around motor pulley first and tiller pulley (the large one) last. Belt is 3/8" x 27" v-belt. Idler pulley is available too, only under Lawn Boy part number, which is found on parts list at New Holland site. Just had to perform repair. All parts found on ebay.
Hope this helps!
