My 5 horsepower pony tiller just shuts off with no warning after about 20-30 minutes of tilling and will not restart again until it cools down to the touch I have changed the spark plug, drained and...


I also was having issues with an old 5 horse Troy Built tiller that would fire when gas was in the tank then stop running. If it's a Briggs and Stratton engine like the one I have it's probably you can remove the muffler to gain access to the side of the carb. Remove the four screws and the cover off the fuel pump diphram and check to make sure that the rubber isn't cracked or degraded. I replaced the one I had and it now runs like a champ.

Lawn mower wont start when I pull the cord, it has plenty of gasoline.


Does it have a primer bulb? Does the primer bulb have a crack in it? If it does it won't do its job, needs to be replaced. Is the plug good? Does it have spark? How old is the gas? If it was in the tank for a long time, it may not be potent enough to fire. Plugs are inexpensive to replace, and can do wonders.
Hope this helps.

I need a owner's manual for a early 80's Troy-bilt Horse tiller It hasn't been used for a couple of years and we can't get it started. Want to make sure I have the correct spark plug and the correct fuel...


Ebay has manuals on CD for $6.99 with free shipping. If the spark plug is firing when you crank the engine you probably have a gummed up carburater and it will have to be cleaned. They will do this when they set for a while. Not sure if that will have points and condenser or not but if it does and will not fire they will have to be cleaned or possible replaced also.

I have a horse model about 35 years old with a kohler motor 7 horse. What new motor fits. serial no. 360331


In my opinion, (which doesn't count for much, I know) the 7hp Kohler Troy Bilt Horse tiller was the best tiller ever made. Those tillers lasted forever if they were taken care of. I've got one of the 8hp Kohler versions, but it's just not the same.

It's become a lot harder to find an engine to replace these engines. You'll most certainly want to go to a Briggs and Stratton dealer and have them look it up. You need a 3/4" crank, 2 7/8" long with a keyway, tapped for a bolt to hold on the pulley and reverse disc. IF you find an engine to fit, you'll likely need to have a custom throttle cable made up to replace the current one. A good small engine dealer should be able to help you.

Now for the bad news. The 7hp Kohler was a cast iron engine. Any replacement engine you find will likely be an aluminum block with a cast iron sleeve and therefore, much lighter. What this means is the balance of the tiller, from front to back, is going to be thrown off. The result is - it will be MUCH harder to pick up the rear of the tiller when you want to turn at the end of the garden. You will most likely need to either put on one of the bumpers (if you can find one to fit) or figure out a way to hang some weight on the engine. I've seen people do some creative things to get the balance back. Whatever you do, it just won't be the same as that great 7hp Kohler. I'd suggest trying to rebuild it - if possible!

I have 1980's model troy built pony tiller that won't fire


Great machine, I had one. The points need replacement. Look for a gadget that replaces the points. I found mine in PepBoys. Search the Internet, the cost was about $5.00.

I lost spark to the spark plug!


There is a magnet on the above the flywheel that creates spark. It is called the armature. This will allow you to get spark as long as your flywheel is good, but this is the most common cause besides electric start system
