Question about Garden
I have an older 18'' rear-tine rototiller Make S?????? Model 60 4034 1 with 5hp B&S engine, and I can not figure out how the belts should be routed through the pulleys and idlers. I can not identify the Make and therefore can not get a schematic or diagram showing the correct belt layout.
There are 2 belts, 1 which drives forward and reverse and the 2nd engages the tines. The rototiller did not work when I bought it. I have crossed the old belts to new but they do not work or were wrong or on incorrectly, etc. How do I find out the right belts to use and how to put them on?
Can anyone advise the MAKE from the Model number so I can track down a diagram or get the correct parts, or suggest how best to route the belts, measure the belts, etc?

SOURCE: rototiller won't start
There are a number of thing that it could be, so lets start from the beginning. Check these off the list as we go:
1. Does it have fresh gas?
2. Check to see if the fuel line(s) are in good condition; (no cracks/breaks).
3. Make sure the fuel filter is not clogged.
4. Do you still have the original carburetor guts in it?
5. Make sure that the carb. is good and clean. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean all the small portals/jet. (Use carb. cleaner)
If you have any other questions, just let me know.

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.
