Question about Troy Bilt Pony 6.5 Hp Rear Tine Tiller

1 Answer

Put it in gear and as soon as it has a load it stops tines and wheels. Has trans grease, and have tried to tighten belt by the two side adjustments but it will not move? It is an older tiller Kohler engine 8horse. It was working fine the day before. But today I tried everything I know to remedy the problem but to no avail.

    Mine did the same thing. It was the rear bearing south of the gear. It dropped two bearings into the gears and locked it up big time.
    The rear bearings run dry if trans oil gets low, even a little low.

It sounds like the key that holds the pulley on the front of the tiller transfer case has sheared into. Carefully remove the belt safety cover so the belts are exposed and start the tiller. With a flashlight look at the pully on the lower shaft and shaft area. Carefully engage the tines and see it they are turning. With a second person visually, from the side, inspect the pulleys to make sure they are turning. Now carefully load the tines and see if the pullies of shaft stop turning. If the shaft stops and the pulleys keep turning then the key on the shaft has sheared off. If both keep turning then you have something that has broken or sheered in the transfer case. This type of inspection is dangerous and needs to be done at a distance with a flashlight so you can see down in the shaft area when standing off to the side while someone loads the tines. It is very difficult to try and see if the shaft is sheered in the pully as is the case without the engine running. The key has friction and it is difficult to turn the tines with the drive engaged to the engine. The only other option is to disassemble the transfer case to see what has gone bad. Please be careful testing it. Good Luck, RAC

Why did my tines stopped working


Hello, Did you notice if the tines moved when you turned the belt pulley to install the new belt? If the tines do not move when you rotate the driven pulley by hand, the worm gear might be stripped. If the tines do move when you rotate the driven pulley by hand, the belt tensioner might not be working properly. It could be as simple as an adjustment.

How do I adjust my self propelled belt


I don't think there IS an adjustment. That is what prompted me to construct a tensioner device to add just that little more tension needed. This was MY fix after trying a new belt and spring.
My Craftsman mower lost the self propel feature. The small pulley on the top of the transmission would slip under load, There was just not enough tension on the belt to over come it. Tried a new belt and also replaced the tensioner spring...still slipping when going uphill or with full bag. Possible pulleys worn...not wanting to gamble more time and labor, I bought a 4" 1/4" cap screw with extra nuts and flat washers, a 3"16 eye bolt as well. Drill a 1/4" hole in the bracket that holds the trans activation cable in place and a 3/16" hole in the mower deck so the holes are in alignment with each other. Put the cap screw through the 1/4" hole with the threads facing toward the front of the mower. Fasten the eye bolt into the 3/16" hole in the mower deck locking it in place with one nut on each side of the metal. Now you have the 1/4" bole protruding through the eye bolt. Using a flat washer and nut, tighten then nut easily and when there is room put a second nut on it. When you have tightened it up to the desired belt tension lock the two nuts together using two wrenches. Note...do NOT make the belt incredibly tight or you will destroy the trans in a short time. Go a little at a time till the drive does not slip under load. Good luck hope this helps. Oh....you will have to trim the plastic cover that covers the transmission so the added bolt will clear it and you can put the cover back in it's proper place.

hi there, ive been doing a bit of head scratching over this one as i needed to check my facts. i think the belt has a automatic spring loaded adjuster so it sounds as if you need a new belt for it.

MTD series 410 rear tine tiller drive wheels slip


I have the same issue with one I am working on. It appears the keys in the drive shaft are not rotating far enough out on the drive gear side to fully engage in the gear. I have studied and studied this and so far I have been unable to determine why. If I find out I will let you know. I am also trying to figure out what is supposed to pull these keys out of the till engagement gear.

Singer 328k bobbin winder replacement


Follow these instructions, undo the 2 screws on the right hand side plate where the balance wheel is and take the plate off, undo the screw on the chrome stop motion wheel, undo the stop motion and take it off, take off the 2 pronged washer and notice which way it goes on, not a problem if you can't remember, you should be able to pull the balance wheel back so you can get to the screws on the winder, if you can.t and if you have a problem getting the balance wheel all the way then go the very bottom of the machine and you will see 2 big holes and one of the holes will lead you to a big screw and nylon adjuster, slacken the screw and move the nylon adjust so the belt goes slack, you can not take the balance wheel all the way off to get to the screws on the winder, take the old one off and screw the new one on, whilst you have the balance wheel off it would be wise to put some thin oil on the shaft before you put the balance wheel back on, when you have the balance wheel on and the and the belt round the pulley turn the nylon adjuster so the belt is tight and tighten up the screw, put the side plate back on, put the 3 pronged washer back on, put the stop motion wheel back on and just tighten finger tight then tighten the small screw.

I have a craftsman 19 in dual rotating tines, rear tine tiller. # 917-293493. In mid till, the tines quit turning. Won't shift into any gear. Wheels are locked. Any ideas?????


It is going to be a transmission issue. You can try with the engine off, turning the trans pully by hand in the opposite direction that the motor was turning it.
Some gears in the trans got crossed up and locked.

2 cycle Murray Ultra front tines, quit pulling, will turn if you hold the front end up, but put it down and they stop. need diagram or manual of tiller


I had the same problem. It turns out the gear box was bone dry.
Remove both the left side tines, there is a grease fitting below and
to the right of the tine shaft. Before adding grease remove the air vent screw
which is located above and a little to the left of the tine shaft.(It has a slotted head)
Pump in grease until it comes out the air vent. Replace the air vent screw and the tines.

It appeared to me that there was probably never any grease in it
as it took quite a lot to fill and when it finally came out the air vent it was
new grease, not discolored like you would expect to see when you
would be pushing some old grease out with the new.

Belt stops as soon as any weight is applied.


This is caused by one of three problems. First and most likely, the walking belt is loose. To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns. If it takes more than 2 turns then something else is the problem. The second problem that it could be is the drive belt might be loose. To tighten the drive belt, start by removing the front cover. loosen the bolts around the motor then tighten the drive belt by tightening the motor adjuster bolt. Once the drive belt is tight, tighten the motor back down. The third problem that it could be is the walking belt could be worn and need to be replaced. Let me know if you have any questions.
