Question about Craftsman Rear Mount Tiller
I have a craftsman rear tine tiller w/a 5hp briggs & stratton. Model # 917.299752. I am trying to re-condition it back to an operable state, but without a user's guide I am lost as to where to insert gear oil into transmission (filler plug). Please help
Jim the older tillers did not have a place to put grease in. You have to break the case apart then it takes 00 grease. These are sealed units and don't need additional grease. Check with Sears.com parts lookup for a new manual. I am on my second Craftsman r/t tiller now rebuilt the transmission on the first and wore it completly out then bought a new about 8 years ago. About to rebuild the transmission on it.
