SOURCE: I have 1980's model troy built pony tiller that won't fire

Great machine, I had one. The points need replacement. Look for a gadget that replaces the points. I found mine in PepBoys. Search the Internet, the cost was about $5.00.

SOURCE: tilller will not run

Get the model # and serial # off of the sticker. Got to the Troy Bilt site and use the owners manual link. Need to leave off the last 3 numbers of the model #.

If that site does not have the manual, I've found them on the MTD site. I enter only the first 2 numbers of the model # and then hunt for my manual from the list.

If all else fails, you can call Troy Bilt at their # provided on the site.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: broken pull cord on my manual start Troy-bilt Pony

It's definitely do-it-yourself in that no special tools or skills are required, but it can be a little tricky. You can see that the the recoil starter is in an assembly which is spot welded onto a metal cover. You have to remove the entire metal cover that includes the recoil starter. There may be 6 to 10 screws to remove to do that. When you get it off you will see a plastic spool that holds the cord. This spool is probably held in place by a couple of metal tabs that are bent down. Bend those tabs up with pliers. Underneath the spool is a spiral spring that provides the recoil. Take careful note of how this all goes together. Buy a new cord (available by the foot at a hardware store) and wrap it around the plastic spool. Use a piece of tape to hold the end of the new cord above the spool so you can thread it through the hole in the metal housing later. Put the spring and the spool in place, then wind the spool to put tension on the spring - about 5 turns in the direction that would push the string out through the hole. Once you have the spring "wound up" remove the tape and thread the end of the cord through the hole. Now bend those metal tabs back down. Put the handle on the cord end (or tie a knot) to keep the spring from pulling the end of the cord back through the hole. Reassemble the rest and you are in business.

H50083. I found these numbers on my grandmothers Conn trombone. I don't think its a serial number but what else could it be?

That number does match a Conn cup mouthpiece instrument made in 1966.

A 1940's instrument would carry a serial number 327850 to 389600

You can get this manual directly from the website. A lot of manufacturers have their manuals available and just out of curiosity I checked there and in they do have tillers like the one pictured here. Enter pony tiller in the search box and you'll get a page of their different models. Click the one you have and it opens into another window showing the tiller, and beneath it is a bar with "overview" Specs" "Accessories" and "Parts & Manual" You can download the manual and - "yippee!!" - it's even free.

The serial # of the tiller should be stamped directly above the right wheel on the transmission housing. This should give you more info to work from.

Where do i locate the serial number? im trying to add micosoftperfect to my laptop, and everytime I punch in the number I think it is, it says the serial number is wrong!!

You do not use the serial number to your laptop. You need the serial number for the software. It should be on the disc it or the box the software came in.

I have an old troy bilt pony rotertiller no serial tag

The decals r a good indication, they probably didn't have any more made than they needed. The only thing i can think of is, sometimes on the back side of the flywheel, (if u ever have it off) r some stamped numbers. One set of numbers is the month, and one set is the year it was made. Now that's the flywheel, but the engine should be the same year.
