Remove the Belt, take it to an a Auto parts store and buy a smaller one, the replacement engine may not be exactly as the old one was

Drive belt is slipping when under load. How do you tighten the belt. thanks, Ted Troybilt Horse rear tine tiller


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.
good luck

Hi! i have older troybilt rear tine tiller and would like tires and if possible a owners manuel the only serial # i could find is 464932. do you have access to older parts for equipment such as mine?...


http://www.mtdparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OperatorManualView?storeId=10101&catalogId=19502&langId=-1

Go to the above website and put in your model and serial number. If it is a Horse tiller just type in Horse and your serial number and you can download a copy of your operator manual. If it is the Horse model it was built between 1/1/80 and 7/1/80. i believe you have a Horse II four speed model that will just have one drive belt the older Horse I tillers were two speed with two belts.
Most any good tire shop can supply tires for your tiller or you can order them online and take then to a shop to mount for you. If your tires are not real bad they can just put tubes in them so they will hold air. Almost all parts are available through MTD who owns the Troy Bilt name now or through many sites online.

Good Luck,

Tiller will not engage tines


Is this a two speed or a 4 speed ... it is a MTD built Troy or a Troy built Troy or do you know?

There were two versions of Horse built in Troy, New York bu Gardenway ... the two speed and the 4 speed. The two speed used two belts the same size while the 4 speed used one belt on different sized pulleys. There was also a variation that used a slip gear ... this model was built to accomodate other accesories ... log splitter and generator.

If yours is a Troy Built from Garden Way, I can help you. If this one is from MTD, I'm not so sure. Can you ID your machine for me please?

Go to this website and type in Horse for your model number.Just put thenumber 1 in for your serial number and it will bring up several horse tiller manuals. If yours is a 1976 then it should be
a Horse I model. This should be a two speed tiller and have two drive belts.

Drive belt slipping, how to adjust


Where the lever mechanism for forward and reverse works down close to the engine mine has a bolt that you loosen and adjust the slide up and down to allow for more movement of the housing.

I have a troy built horse rear tine tiller serial # has faded away, question is how do i change the drive belts? engine is on a carrige and slides up and down to engage belts [two short belts] there is not...


If it has the reverse fiber disk on it. Take it off 1st and it will allow the engine to go down farther. Most of the time if you take the pully bolt from the engine out the pulley will come of when you pull out on the housing. You must remove the slide pins for this to happen though. There are set bolts on the side to remove the slide pins. It is still a little tuff to get the belts in and make sure they go inside the belt guides on both sides. I just take 1 slide pin out of mine and swing it out a little to put mine on.

What is the easyist way to change belt on older troybilt horse tiller without pulling motor


You dont need to pull the motor ... in fact if you do , that will not help you. We are talking about a genuine Troy, right? Bujilt in Troy not Cleveland.

At most, you will have to remove th reverse disk.

Take off the off the old belt(s) (mine 6 hp Horse is a older two belt drive). You must be in neutral. Pull the belt off the back of the engine pulley and down to give you slace to get it off the transmission pulley then pull it away.

It is very easy to say and a llittle harder to do but not as hard as you think, believe me. I have 2 belts and have replaced them several times.

Can i see the models from 1983 to 1985,i need a belt so i can use reverse again but i dont now my model or size. my husband died 3 years ago. if i could see some pictures from the 1980's mine has a potatoe...


Your question doesn't give enough detail to properly answer. Do you know if the tiller is a Horse model or a Pony model? Troy Bilt made both models back in the timeframe you noted. The Horse model had tires that required air to inflate. The Pony model likely had hard rubber tires in that era. The Horse models had a reverse disc, no belt. The Pony had a belt.

Once you know which model you have - look for your closest Troy Bilt dealer and see if they can track down the part for you. They might appreciate it if you could provide the serial number - which is located on the pipe connecting the tiller transmission front half to the back half, where the tines are located. It's stamped right into the metal tube on both models.
