    It starts on choke then dies while still on choke or after you take it off choke?

Have you tried squirting gas into carburetor to see if it will keep running? If that keeps it running as long as you are squirting gas in it, your carb need to be cleaned out/repaired.

Most definitely. You aren't getting enough gas, probably because the float valve is gummed up. Drain the gas, put in a little carb cleaner and a little fresh gas. Fire it up. Do that a couple of time if needed, then fill tank with fresh gas. Use a gas stabilizer like Sea Foam to prevent this.

Troy built tiller starts chugs along and then kills full size mod


I'm sorry you are having trouble with your Troy-Bilt Tiller. I have a genuine Troy-Bilt and I miss the original manufacturer and the help they provided me with my 30 year old machine.

I believe your trouble is in the needle valve adjustment. If you check the bottom of the carb, you will find the needle valve. It should be open about 1 1/2 turns and then fine tuned open or closed a bit to get the best speed. There is the possibility that your carb is dirty inside and could benefit from some carb or injector cleaner. You may also benefit from installing a new spark plug as well. Sometimes, in older engines, you can benefit from using a spark plug one or two heat ranges higher. You will have to experiment with these options to find the best for your situation.

I hope you find these suggestions to be of some benefit.

I have an old pressure washer that uses Tecumseh H30 engine. After pumping the choke bulb on the carb, it will crank, run maybe 5 seconds and quit. Thanks


When you get it started, move the choke to the middle, then let it warm up. you might have to move the choke back and forth until it warms up, keep the throttle wide open.

Troy Bilt Tiller and Pressure Washer


The carbs are plugged. Take the bowl off the carburetor by loosening the nut on the bottom. You'll want to clamp the fuel line before you do this. That nut has a small hole that goes through the nut from side to side, and one that connects them in the center. Use a wire brush to knock all the deposits loose, making sure that the holes are clean and free of obstruction. Put it all back together, and it should run fine.

Shift your Wheel gear lever to "disengage". Use the disengage position only when the engine is not running.
