When you drained the gas from the gas tank did you also take the carb apart and clean it. There should be a bowl that the fuel line from the gas tank goes to. There is a float in that bowl that has to go up and down to regulate how much gas goes into the engine. You may have a build up of varnish from old gas on the piece that the float moves up and down. Also there should be an idle jet that you screw in and out to adjust the idle. That also could be junked up.
Transmission/differential. Perhaps the unit sat for 4 years because the tines would not turn and your replacement engine has not solved the real problem. I'd say disassemble the chain case to discover what's locking the tine drive.
if the idle is too high the tines wont stop due to the tiller tines are run by a "centrifuigual clutch" which means when you increase the throttle speed the tines will start to turn : there are 2 adjustments you can try,1) adjust the idle screw under the carburetor where the throttle adjustment and a triangle piece of metal touch(your throttle cable wire will be attached to this triangle) ,if the triangle and idle adjustment don't touch and there's a gap between these 2 pieces close the gap by adjusting the 10mm adjusting nut,this will correctly set the idle #2) adjust the idle adjustment screw talked about above till the tines dont turn with throttle set at idle or lowest speed setting
IF THIS IS A WALK BEHIND TILLER OR FRONT TINE TILLER. THERE SHOULD BE PINS OR BOLTS HOLDING THE TINES ON THE DRIVE SHAFT REMOVE THESE AND PULL THE TINES OFF THE TILLER. THEY MAY GIVE YOU A HARD TIME GETTING THEM OFF SO DON'T GIVE UP. ONCE YOU GET THE TINES OFF YOU SHOULD SEE THE SEALS YOU CAN POP THE OLD ONES OUT WITH A SCREW DRIVER CLEAN OUT THE SOCKETS WHERE THE NEW SEALS WILL GO REPLACE THE NEW SEALS GENTLY WITH A SMALL HAMMER TAPPING THEM IN EVENLY AND TRY NOT TO BEND THE SEAL
Hello, My name is Dane and I am going to assist you in solving your problem. You should have an idle screw adjustment on the carb to adjust the idle RPM. As you pull the trigger, watch on the carburetor for a small moving plate. The idle screw should touch that plate. Be very careful, and have someone hold the tiller and start it. Back off the screw just enough until the tines stop turning. I hope I've helped. If you found this reply useful, please leave me some THUMBS UP, if you feel I've deserved them. Thank you! Dane
double check to make sure you have the new tines in the right direction. also you could try to raise your machine, as the new tines are digging better it might not have to be as low as you had to go with your old ones.
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.
I had the same problem. It turns out the gear box was bone dry. Remove both the left side tines, there is a grease fitting below and to the right of the tine shaft. Before adding grease remove the air vent screw which is located above and a little to the left of the tine shaft.(It has a slotted head) Pump in grease until it comes out the air vent. Replace the air vent screw and the tines.
It appeared to me that there was probably never any grease in it as it took quite a lot to fill and when it finally came out the air vent it was new grease, not discolored like you would expect to see when you would be pushing some old grease out with the new.
