Question about Husqvarna 26" Front Tine Tiller
Last fall I was tilling happily away when my Atlas model 12-B150 front tine tiller suddenly stopped. It has a 3 hp Briggs and Stratton engine. It was suggested to me the shear pin was broken. It appears to be fine. I switched the spark plug but it still does not start. It has fuel in the tank and turns over easily when I pull the start cord. Also when changing the oil, how much does it take? I purchased this used and do not have an owner's manual. Thanks.
Paul i assuming you mean the motor stopped running,not the tiller part........? you say the motor turns over easy,suggesting that the motor hung a valve open and you have no compression in the motor.i'm hoping that you checked the oil level before you started and ran the engine. oil level is at the second thead down from the top of oil fill hole. if it was any lower the that you could have ran the motor low of oil causing one of the valves to stick. never had much luck on cleaning the valve stem or valve guide in the head,usualy you need to replace the head assy. they do come as a unit but they are pricey. take the valve cover off and see if both valves will push down into the cylinder. also see if one or the other valves are lower then the other. if you need more help i'll be glad to help you out as much as possible.......
