The rear tine seals are leaking ive taken the bolts out but the tines will not come off what can i do


You could try putting the tiller to use, preferably where it will have to work hard to till the ground it unsuccessful you may need a torch and some good old fashion luck to loosen tines from shaft. Now consider this; if the bearings are worn so that the shaft is loose new seals will not hold up and you will risk doing further damage to the worm gear located on rear shaft and possibly other damage to your transmission from contaminated oil.

TILLER WILL START/RUN BUT BLADES DON'T MOVE..TILLER PART DON'T MOVE? MTD21AH413B129287-424


Hello, W/D here.

The motor drives a belt, and the belt drives a pulley that causes a chain to drive the tines (blades). For the belt to drive the tines, an idler pulley has to put tension on the belt. This is moved into position by a lever that pulls the pulley into tension on the belt, and tension is maintained with a spring when the lever is locked into place.
1. Make sure that the tines will rotate with the belt off. If there is difficulty, check for debris holding the tines (roots, etc.). If necessary, remove the cap covering the chain cover inspection port, and with the machine tilted back, observe for proper operation of the chain while moving the tines by hand. Lubricate the chain according to your manual. If your chain is not working properly, disassemble down to the chain case, and inspect the chain and sprockets. Chain is radily at places like Motion Industries, WW Grangier, or a bicycle shop. Often overlooked, check that the pulley set screws are tight, and causing the shaft attached to it to actually rotate. Check the pins and locking cotter pins in the tines, make sure that they are pinned to the shaft.
2. Check the belt. An old belt can stretch to the point where it will no longer work. The "V" belt can also wear down to where insufficient friction can be applied to the driving or the driven pulleys to cause it to rotate.
3. Check the condition of the idler pulley and spring. Make sure that the lever places tension on the belt. It should be somewhat difficult to engage the idler pulley when the belt is new. You may have an adjustor on the idler that will tighten the belt.
Best regards, --W/D-- Please provide feedback for our solutions so that we may continue to improve in helping others. Thanks.

I need to find out what size belt for tine engagement on a Dayton 5hp Tiller model # 32885 C144B


a simple way to figure out the length is to engage the tine mechanism and take a string and wrap it around the pulleys mark it and take it to any belt store, and buy the Belt you need. You will need to know if it's a 3/8s or 1/2 inch drive belt. Normally tine belts are half inch or 5/8 wide on a 5 horse power motor, You can get these belts at sears or Nappa auto parts store. hope this helps.

I need a new belt on rototiller.


To replace your tiller belt you will have to :
Take a few pictures before you get started so you know how everything goes back together.
- 1) Remove the belt guard
- 2 ) Loosen the belt pulley and remove spring, remember how this was attached.
- 3 ) Pull the belt through housing and off of the transmission pulley.
Now grab your new belt and install in reverse order.

How does the gear box come apart on a six horse troy built tiller?


  1. Remove belt guard on left side
  2. Remove belt, large pulley on gearbox.
  3. Remove throttle cable, idler pulley cable and shift handle.
  4. Remove engine, handle, wheels, tines cover and tines.
  5. Lay gearbox on side on two sawhorses, left side facing up
  6. Remove all the nuts on that side. If the three shafts have corrosion, use sandpaper to remove.
  7. Pry the two halves apart, then hammer the ends of the three shafts to push through their bushings. Use brass or wood to avoid blossoming the shaft ends. When shafts are through their bushings, the right side will fall away.

I have craftsmen 5HP rear tine tiller,while tilling picked up a rock which jammed the tines and stalled the motor. when i restarted it had loud grinding noise and then locked up stopping me from being able...


If the tiller tines where jammed, the tranny and motor where still trying to turn and there could be a couple different parts broken. The tranny main shaft make have busted, the tranny gears could have jammed. If the motor does start, than that is a good sign. If not than the connecting rod or crank may have snapped.

I am guessing you will probably have to dismantle the transmission and see if there are any broken gears or shaft.

Put it in gear and as soon as it has a load it stops tines and wheels. Has trans grease, and have tried to tighten belt by the two side adjustments but it will not move? It is an older tiller Kohler engine...


It sounds like the key that holds the pulley on the front of the tiller transfer case has sheared into. Carefully remove the belt safety cover so the belts are exposed and start the tiller. With a flashlight look at the pully on the lower shaft and shaft area. Carefully engage the tines and see it they are turning. With a second person visually, from the side, inspect the pulleys to make sure they are turning. Now carefully load the tines and see if the pullies of shaft stop turning. If the shaft stops and the pulleys keep turning then the key on the shaft has sheared off. If both keep turning then you have something that has broken or sheered in the transfer case. This type of inspection is dangerous and needs to be done at a distance with a flashlight so you can see down in the shaft area when standing off to the side while someone loads the tines. It is very difficult to try and see if the shaft is sheered in the pully as is the case without the engine running. The key has friction and it is difficult to turn the tines with the drive engaged to the engine. The only other option is to disassemble the transfer case to see what has gone bad. Please be careful testing it. Good Luck, RAC
