Question about Troy Bilt Pony 6.5 Hp Rear Tine Tiller

1 Answer

Troy Bilt Tiller tines do not engage

I have a Red Horse Troy Bilt tiller.  The wheels turn but not the tines.  The trouble shooting section indicates that I should adjust the PTO/Clutch but does not give directions to do so. Any advice?  The tiller is less that 2 years old.

    have you ever taken off the rear tines gearbox?  Try taking it off and see what condition the clutch is in.  I haven't looked at mine recently, but I think you just add shims to increase the clutch tooth engagement.  Matt

You likely have a clutch problem, never saw one that a simple adjustment would fix. I'd take off the tiller (there are two bolts that hold the tiller portion to the transmission, and check to make sure the clutch is sliding in and out. My hunch is either the lever is loose on the shaft or the allen-head little bolt that they use to shift the clutch has come out. Be sure to grease the clutch while you're in there.

This should be covered in your owners manual. Shame on them if they didn't mention this.

1980 pony rear tine tiller: when I put it into gear it just sits there and will suddenly lurch ahead uncontrollably.


That will happen when the tines are engaged while the wheels are in Neutral as the tines simply drive the whole machine forward without the drag of the wheels being in gear. If the wheel transmission is engaged and this is still happening, then you have need for repair.

Troy-bilt horse engiine runs good , tines work,


The wheel shaft on a Horse tiller is one piece so if the shaft turns on one side it will turn on the other. make sure the pin that holds the wheel on is not missing that would let it spin on the shaft.
That's the only thing I can think of that would cause that problem. Hope that helps.

Make sure that when you heat that you heat the wheel assembly only and not the axle. If the heat gets directly to the axle it will expand and the heat does no good.

That's the engine number. It's a 6Hp Tecumseh. Go on ebay and buy the Troy Bilt parts manuals on CD for Horse Roto Tillers (if that's what it's on). I paid $8. Definitely worth it.

I can't move my Troy-Bilt tiller unless it's running.


Some Troy Bilt Tillers were designed with a manual "free-wheel". If yours is a Tuffy (and maybe a Junior), you have to pull pins out of the wheels to move the tiller without starting it. The larger tillers, Pony's and Horses, had a lever to shift to release the wheels.

Troy bilt horse pto clutch will not disengage


The problem is lack of lubrication in the pto coupling. Losen the two swing bolts carefuly,block the front under the motor. Separate the tine transmision from the housing and grease both sides with as much grease as you can work in. Work the lever as you do this. Should fix the problem.
