Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have a craftsman tiller model 298161, 6 hp with reverse. While tilling I dug up a brick and had to knock it loose with a hammer. After this the tines will turn as long as they are above ground, when you lower the tines to the ground THEY STOP. Reverse does not work. I got a replacement belt from Sears, problem remained.

    Sounds like the main pulley shear pin has broken. The main pulley is the only common factor that relates to both issues you describe. Remove the center bolt from the pulley then use a puller to remove the pulley and replace the halfmoon shear set and reinstall pulley

Look on the shaft and see if there is a shear pin or a keeper. ie: half moon or square. If not, it is time to open the gearbox

I bought a board game called knock out by Milton Bradley. There were no instructions on how to play. Do you know the rules on how to play?


The wiki for the game has the rules ill post them here for convenience:

Before the game begins, a wall of 24 bricks (plus one "Knockout" brick) is constructed. A template is provided to assist where the bricks should be placed in the wall. These bricks can be 1, 2, or, 3 blocks wide. The bricks are made of clear colored plastic. The 25th brick, also known as the "Knockout" brick (colored solid black in the Milton Bradley version and solid blue in the Hasbro version) is three blocks wide, and is placed on the top of the wall, directly in the middle. The template shows exactly where to place this brick as well.

Players first must roll a special die that has four colors on it and two stars. If a color is rolled, the player must knock out a brick of that color, out of the wall. If the player rolls a star, the player may knock out any brick they wish (with a few exceptions, see below). Players take turns using a motorized hammer known as the "Rammer Hammer", in an attempt to knock out the specified brick out of the wall, without making the wall collapse, OR making the "Knockout" brick fall off the wall. If a player is successful in knocking out the brick, without the wall collapsing, or the "Knockout" brick falling off the wall, they must put the brick back, on the top of the wall. Each player thereafter must accomplish the same task.

The rules for hammering are:

  • A player cannot touch the wall in any way, except with the hammer
  • Once you begin to hammer a brick out of the wall, a player cannot change their mind, even if it becomes obvious that hammering the brick any further will make the wall collapse.
  • A player cannot hammer any brick on the same row or a row higher than the "Knockout" brick

A player is allowed an attempt to make the wall more stable by using the hammer to stabilize the wall before they commit to hammering out a brick, but once a player starts to hammer a brick out of the wall, they can not change their mind.

If at any time during a player's turn, the wall collapses, or the "Knockout" brick falls off the wall, that player is eliminated from the game, the wall is rebuilt, and play starts again with the next player in line.

If only one player remains, they win the game.

Have a sears craftsman 6.0 rear tine tiller.


Hi little,

The 7.0 hp version does the same thing.

I found that it was caused by the transmission not being fully engaged to a particular setting. when it tries to engage the tines in both forward and reverse, the engine stalls immediately.

After taking to neutral and back a few dozen times I got a 'feel' for it. Has happened in over a year.

Try it. It did take patience.

Best regards

Craftsman rear tine tiller will only go forward. The shift lever will not move to either the ''Till'' position or the ''Reverse'' position


Pretty common failure for all brands unfortunately. The transmission will have to opened up to determine the cause and it is not cheap to have done. Sorry

How to lock drive shaft to change reverse disk?


I just changed the belts on my tiller, and had the same problem..The manual says to be on the left side of machine and with a box end wrench on the bolt, "hit with a hammer"..use a brass or lead hammer..
This sometimes works, but you still have to tighten it when you are done!
My tiller has electric start, so the easy way was to remove starter and position a piece of wood against the ring gear.
