Briggs and stratton quantam 6.5 hp fires but will not run


Check for a clogged air filter.Try starting it without the air filter installed. Check for loose wires to the spark plug and ground. I am assuming there is gas in the tank, but does it get to the carb? Check the gas line, is it blocked? Is the carb leaking?

Get behind the tiller as if you are ready to use it. Look down towards the tines. There's a protective cover. Remove it and you will see the belt running vertically between the motor and the tines.

Have a rototiller it moves OK but the tines do not turn It is a mtd yard machine rear tine


Seems to be a fairly common problem with these units. If the big pulley is turning which I assume it is as the drive wheels work, it is most likely a problem in the gear box. The shift mechanism in these units leave a lot to be desired. You can try to repair it your self or take it to a service center. Labor will be high due to the amount of time required to separate the engine and transmission.

Most of them have a pin to lock the wheel to the axle... Check the center hub of the wheel and see if you can find some kind of hole that a pin would go in to lock axle to the wheel...

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.

Wheels turn, tines don't


These machines have an arm to activate the tines independantly from the wheels, make sure that the tine arm is in the on position.
If not, seems like you have a transmission problem, you'll have to get dirty to fix this one and open up the transmission casing to see if its just the link between the tine arm and tine crankshaft that broke or if its more serious.

Rototiller will not start


paul i assuming you mean the motor stopped running,not the tiller part........? you say the motor turns over easy,suggesting that the motor hung a valve open and you have no compression in the motor.i'm hoping that you checked the oil level before you started and ran the engine. oil level is at the second thead down from the top of oil fill hole. if it was any lower the that you could have ran the motor low of oil causing one of the valves to stick. never had much luck on cleaning the valve stem or valve guide in the head,usualy you need to replace the head assy. they do come as a unit but they are pricey. take the valve cover off and see if both valves will push down into the cylinder. also see if one or the other valves are lower then the other. if you need more help i'll be glad to help you out as much as possible.......
