Question about Garden

1 Answer

No spark I bought an old MTD tiller today. It is a front tine tiller with no power drive and has a briggs and stratton motor on it but it has no spark. the lady I bought it from said it ran last year. I am thinking a coil problem but have not found an engine tag or model number yet. I have not found an on/off swith either but im not sure if it had one.

I'm not sure how old your engine is, but points are the first thing to check if it has them. Also, it always helps to use a new spark plug.

If you have points, you can upgrade to the new electronic ignition for $30.00 or so.

Usually the problem with machines that sit is that the carburetor needs to be cleaned.

The easiest thing to try first is to put in a new spark plug and then give a shot of ether into the carb.

If you have any spark at all, the engine will fire.

It is usually best to try the cheapest and easiest fixes first.

Good luck with your tiller.

Looks like Ranch King Pro is made by MTD. The part is probably the same, but to be safe, take your old cable off and take it to a lawn equipment service shop to match it up. Shouldn't cost more than $10 - $20.

Broken clutch cable connector, MTD Tiller


I found micro fiche on jackssmallengines.com . Click on the manufacturer's tab at the top of the page then you'll have the option to use an off-site tool to locate your machine. I used it and found my 1990 mtd rear tine tiller. I needed the cable that engages the tines - maybe the same as you. The part number for my 1990 model's cable was 746-0535. Dont know if it was still the same in 96 to 98. But look at the fiche and see.

the tines are usually connected with shear bolts designed to break away when u hit something as a safety precaution so that u dont break anything in the transmission. its common that people dont know this and replace them with normal bolts. if this was done and the tines are not moving now chances are uve got a snapped gear shaft
