Question about Craftsman Rear Mount Tiller
I have a used and old Stateman Rear Tine Tiller with a Briggs and Stratton 5.0 HP motor. The motor works fine and still strong but the tiller portion seems to be the problem. When ever I shift to (T) tiller gear, it won't engage or will spin only a little bit with no power on it.(clutch is engaged). As soon as the tines hit the soil/grass it stops turning/cutting the ground and sometimes make a metalic crackling sound which seems to come from the tiller transfer gear. I have not yet opened the tiller mechanism portion but will soon. Please assist on where can I get replacement parts for this old monster, or am I looking at the wrong portion of the machine. The following info is forwarded: MODEL: 130202, TYPE: 312901, CODE: 88101927 from Briggs and Stratton motor. The main body of the machine has the mark: ROPER model: 5056 94 and SER: 3478S01006. The main frame is also mark in big numbers: 106137X - #50. Hope you can assist me on this problem.
Sounds like the worm gears are worn to the point they will not engage.
