SOURCE: yard machine tiller won't stay started!

There is a small diaphram on the side of the carb that simply wears out. It's rubber coated mesh and the rubber coating breaks down and it stops pumping fuel into the carb. Sometimes you can run with the choke on partially, but it will burn 10 times the amount of fuel and cause more damage to the engine itself. I think it's about a $10.00 part.

SOURCE: Mantis 2-stroke tiller won't start

This could be one of several problems...
• Last year's fuel. Get some fresh gas.
• Every 2-stroke needs a new spark plug each year... you know what that means.
• Clogged carb jets due to storing the tiller over the winter with fuel in the system. Never, ever do that. Now you'll need to pull the carb apart and clean it. Most of the orifices are so tiny you can't see them. Good luck.
• Engine is so old the crankshaft seals have hardened with age. This is one reason no 2-stroke lasts longer than about 8 years. If the seals are shot, then it will cost more to fix than a new one costs. Time to toss it.

SOURCE: trouble starting old Mantis tiller 9012 - don't have a manuel -

Mantis has the owners manuals in pdf format available for download on its website. The tillers are here (I hope the link to the tiller group works...if not, just go to the main site and look for "owners manuals" link.

Also, you can call a number and get a representative who usually can help at the numbers listed there, find authorized service people if its not something you can do yourself, order parts and find detailed schematics in the owners manuals. My dog actually ate mine. LOL. But they are free, the owners manuals, unlike other places that charge you for them like they were a "part".

If the crankshaft/flywheel alignment pin is sheared the firing will occur at the wrong time. Check that by removing the flywheel.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG FROM A HUSKEE 26750 TSC ROTOTILLER


repair manual
Huskee 26750TSC Operator Manual
page 14 shows the spark plug
above the stamped OHV metal cover on the motor

plug might be covered with one of these hard plastic caps
they break often and you can buy new ones
or a stock rubber insulated plug connection

would then suggest a tube spanner or plug spanner

cant say if its spark plug is a long threaded long headed type
or a stumpy

Won't start,charged oil,cleaned spark plug and air filter.has gas.


If your tiller has sat for any length of time it may have stale gas and the spark plug may need replacing (not just cleaning). Always make sure all wiring and or connections are clean. You can check for spark by removing spark plug, insert it back into spark plug wiring, using a WOOD clothes pin to hold the wire, hold spark end of spark plug (holding the clothes pin only) on metal casing on machine, pull starter cord and check for spark. If you don't use a non conductive instrument such as the clothes pin you will get a nasty shock. If you have no spark it is time to change the plug. Always put your safety first! Hope this helps! Have a great day! If this doesn't work perhaps you will need more information.

Earthquake Vector Compact Tiller Model#26750


Did you pull the spark plug and clean it, as well as the plug well and compression ring. Blow it out with canned air and dry before replacing the plug. Be certain the plug GAP is correct and it is free of carbon deposits. Rest the plug, tighten by hand and let her go. See if that fixes the problem.

I crossed that number and it comes up as an autolite plug. The NAPA number for a champion plug is 805 or an NGK 7928. Take the old one in and compare them but that is the best I can do

I have a 5hp rototiller and I get no spark


Change the plug, then test again, if still no spark then check the kill mechanism under the shroud, and if still no spark change the ignition module.

I hope this helps.

I have a kohler 3.5 rototiller that will not start


Hello,
  1. Check gap on coil, use a business card it should be snug going in between the coil and flywheel
  2. If still no spark pull ground wire from coil
  3. If spark with ground wire off check for a bare spot on wire that could be grounding out, if you find a bare spot wrap with electrical tape
  4. Still no spark disconnect switch
  5. Still nothing try replacing coil
Let me no how you make out and if we need to look further
