Question about Garden
I have a troybilt push mower with Honda 160cc engine, bought March 2010 at Lowes. Use it maybe 5 times a year. The mower started vibrating, I look under it and the three bolts holding the engine to the frame or housing are cracking off, ie, the housing is cracking all around the bolts, two spots competely separated, the other one barely holding on...is this a common problem, is it fixable?
This is not a common problem. The bolts are at fault. You can replace them and it will work but make sure they are the right bolts and you put them in tight.

SOURCE: Its starts but will cut off
The problem you are having is due to dirt and gunk in the carbeurator. Spray a carbeurator cleaner into the air chamber [remove the air filter] and run it a couple of times then let it sit for two hours while the carbeurator cleaner does its job of dissolving any debris. Then start it up. IF this does it, great, if not repeat the cleaning technique.
If all of this doesn't do it, then the carbeurator will have to be removed and either replaced or rebuilt.

You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

My name is Dane. Troy-Bilt says this mower has a 2 year warranty with a briggs engine. According to troy bilt, that engine is suppose to start in 2 pulls or they fix it for free. Take it to a local briggs dealer and get them to look at it. I would hate to have you try something and you void your warrenty somehow. Here's the link to the website.
Hope this helps you... Thanks....Dane
