Your carberator has crud, or rust, or glaze in it. The carberator will have to be removed, soaked in cleaner for three hours and then rebuilt using the proper carberator kit from any auto parts store. If you need to hire this done expect to pay about 35 dollars.

I HAVE A 8HP HORSE TROYBILT TILLER. I CAN NOT GET ANY GAS INTO THE CARB. I HAVE CLEAN GAS, NEW HOSES, AND CLEANED THE CARB. THE FLOAT IS NOT STUCK, ANY HELP?


have you checked to make sure your fuel shut off valve is turned on? If you remove the fuel line at the tank( with something to catch the gas) and your fuel shut off is turned on and you get no flow then something is clogging the fitting at the tank or inside the tank. You will have to remove and clean the tank. Let me know how you come out.

Old (1981)Troy Prof. 8hp tiller runs 30 sec. and stops.


Clean the carb and if this machine was kept outside all winter make sure no water in tank. I realize you stated that you removed old gas but how it was removed is the key. Try the carb thing first though.

Battery to starter motor.


Just to be clear, the starter should have a large terminal (where the battery cable connects) and a smaller terminal (where the activation wire connects)
The starter is grounded via the mounting bolts.
The activation wire runs from the starter to the starter switch.
