I'd clean it real good and check for bearings that need grease or if there are any zerks where grease needs to be added.

I have a 2000 Honda rebel and the engine will not turn over. I stored it over the winter but I put new gas in it and I have rode it twice already this year. I has sat a couple of weeks and now the engine...

The first thing you want to do is check the oil. Drain and refill. If you see metal filings you have a problem if you don't you have just caught up on maintenance you had to do anyway.
If this model has a radiator check for coolant. I doubt it seized while sitting there but you will want to know. Make sure the level is up to where it's called out in the service manual.
Can you manually kick the engine over with the kick starter. If not take the spark plug/plugs out and try rotating the engine by rolling it back and forth while in gear. If it's seized up it will just skid the rear time. Replace the plugs and try to start again if engine turns. You've pretty much isolated the starter.
If this is an electric start only model (No Kick Starter) you should be able to push start its and charge the battery while running.
Check the connections to the starter and retry. You may have to change out the starter if it won't crank.
Best regards,

White smoke honda mantis rototiller

You're okay the white smoke is the oil burning off the muffler. In time it will stop, just park it somewhere and let it run until it's done. If the problem persists check your air filter and make sure it's not stained with oil, if so you can wash the foam part with soap and water but the paper will need to be replaced. (DO not put foam back on unit until dry.) The oil level should be up to the bottom lip of the dipstick access when the engine is evenly horizontal.

Need a worm gear for a Honda FG100C transmission

I hate to be the bearer of bad news. Honda does not sell the individual parts for the transmission. It is only sold as a complete unit. I tried to get individual parts to fix one and Honda told me the same thing I am telling.
You will have to find a Honda dealer and be ready to give them big bucks for the transmission.(about $250).
Good Day.

Craftsman rototiller 3 5 model 917 299130 leaks

Sounds like you are speaking of the float bowl.
It should not have a hole in it.
You could purchase the part from Sears or a small engine shop.
If it were mine, I'd remove the bowl, clean it, and patch with a gasoline impervious material such as JB weld.
