2 year old gas in tank. tiller won't stay running

When you drained the gas from the gas tank did you also take the carb apart and clean it. There should be a bowl that the fuel line from the gas tank goes to. There is a float in that bowl that has to go up and down to regulate how much gas goes into the engine. You may have a build up of varnish from old gas on the piece that the float moves up and down. Also there should be an idle jet that you screw in and out to adjust the idle. That also could be junked up.

Jerry, I just want to service the gear box on my front end tiller, I guess just opening it and adding grease. Anything else that I need to do to this 40 + year old tiller?

Is the gear box still good? In a lot of older tillers the gear boxes go bad. This is normally due to weeds getting wrapped around the tines and rubbing away at the seals in the end of the gear box. If you have to add oil (grease) then the seals are probably leaking. You should not have to open the gear box up, there should be a plug in it. The plug should be about half way between the bottom and top of the gear box. You should be able to fill the gear box up to that plug with a squeeze bottle. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

Need to see belt route for gilson bros. tiller

You did not state if it was a front or rear tine tiller. This is for the front tine tiller:
The rear belt has a 1/2 twist in it for reverse. The front belt goes on nomally.

If this does not help you I would like a model number if you can locate it so I can get your the proper routing diagram.

Tiller loose power when tilling

Your problem is most likely due to some crud in your carburator. Get a can of carburator cleaner which you add to your fuel. Run a tank of the treated fuel through the tiller and it should be ok. IF not, you will have to rebuild or replace the carburator. Joe

I have a Pony 1100 series Rotiller that takes off very fast and hard to control (I'm not a small guy either)even after setting the throttle at the lower speed and adjusting to depth highth. The ground I...

The reason that it does this, is your tiller is too light. There isn't enough weight to make the tiller dig without lifting the tires up and running on the tines. MTD owns troy-bilt now, and has made them light and cheap like the rest of the MTD lines. Your best bet is to add additional weight to the front, back, and you can even add weight to the tires if you wish. The easiest way is a rock or piece of concrete on top of the handle where the handle meets the engine. I mixed up concrete and cast it onto the front guard, put some in a plastic garbage bag and hung it in that same place I described for a rock, and let it set there. Then I took off the bag, and I have a form-fitting rock that can be removed if you wish. The extra weight will keep the wheels down, and make the tiller more manageable.

Need a downloadable copy of owners manuals.

my 17 in dual tine tiller fouls up the air filter with oil and the spark plug. The prefilter, I can't tell if I put it in backwards or not. Also, the manual says to "fill the oil reservoir almost to overflowing." I don't believe that was right, because I am not sure if that is the reason oil is entering the filter box or not, but I am not going to do that again. I don't know how much oil to add, but it certainly won't be to overflow level. I am going to reverse the prefilter(screen/foam) in the filter chamber and pray that the oil does not foul up the spark plug and filter chamber again. Does anyone agree or disagree?
