Question about Troy Bilt, Tuffy, Rear - Tine Tiller, 4.0 Tecumseh Engine
I have the same problem. When I engage the PTO/Clutch Lever it sometimes grinds and when tat is happening the tines do not move. I can usually disengage it and upon re-engagin the grinding stopes and the tines turn as normal. As loing as I do not go in reverse or otherwise idle the formard motion of the wheels it will stay in gear.
Can anyone tell me what is in need of repair - the sound is coming fron the rear of the PTO transmission. The manual says the PTO/Clutch Lever may need adustment but I anot sure how to do that.
It's likely that your clutch needs adjustment. To adjust, you just need to loosen the two screws on the plate and slide it a bit so the clutch better engages the rear dog clutch. Have you ever taken the tiller portion off the transmission to grease the clutch? If not, before adjusting it you might want to do that. It could be that the clutch isn't sliding back far enough to engage the rear end and a little grease is all it needs. This service requirement is explained in the owners manual for the tiller. One last point, the tiller must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch. From your note, it sounded like you were engaging the clutch with the forward/reverse lever in the forward position. The lever must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch.
