I own a 2 cycle mini tiller craftsman and I need a manual for it. I want to tune up tiller it's blowing smoke.

Manuals for many Craftsman tools are available here: . Lots of tillers are listed just by searching for Craftsman tiller. If you can find the model number (usually on a plaque on the housing of the tiller), you can narrow down the list greatly.

I hope this helps.

Cannot find the model number of our Craftsman Mini Tiller edger

The model number is on a metalized label usually on the upper shaft of the tiller. On the tillers it is usually black with silver letters.
Some of them have the label on the motor itself and some others have the label on the lower guard.

I need to change the gear shift that broke off in the transmission do i have to split it open all the way to change it

Craftsman tillers usually use a chain drive transmission. Sears does not usually offer individual parts for these transmission. They want you to replace the entire trans assembly. If the gear shaft is available ( , then yeas, you would have to split the case all the way open to replace it. This is not an easy job. Most major repair shops would charge 4 or 5 hours of shop time for this repair. It generally requires complete dissassembly of the tiller to remove the transmission.

You did not give a model # for your tiller, so I am only giving you general solutions. Please look up the parts. Many times it is more cost effective to replace your tiller than it is to repair it. Remember that all of the other gear shafts are the same age as the one that broke and have been through the same stresses.

Good luck!

Craftsman mini tiller. Are you selling this unit, giving it away or what. Your information is somewhat meager to say the least.

Oil seal for rear tine shaft

The serial number is located on a flat spot just above the right wheel shaft where the gear housing and the top gear cover meet. It will be a six digit number stamped in the metal.
