SOURCE: How to change primer blub

I suppose this is on the 4-stroke mini tiller. There is a circular retaining washer with "tangs" on it in the bulb housing area. Clean the area well and you will see it. It is black probably. Use a very small screwdriver and reach in and pry it out in a few different spots and it will pull free and so will the bulb. Insert the new bulb and the the retaining washer making sure the tangs on it are all nice and flat. Press it back into place with the same small screwdriver being very careful not to puncture or tear the new bulb.

The starter rope won't move on the mini tiller when I try to pull it

The starter housing is a lousy design; ours also failed just out of warranty and after dis-assembly, I still could not free it.

The part number for the complete housing is:

I see the price is up a few dollars but I bought two after seeing the nature of the problem so have a spare in the shed.

We had no problems with the replacement so there may have been some change in the design.
Swapping the head does require some attention but don't lose patience, you can do it.

A add-on comment; The design or orientation of the blades allows a ridge to form in the center but pulling to the side (blades are then diagonal) prevents this from being a problem.

I have a 26cc 4cycle mini tiller that has a broken re-coil starter rope on it. I've got it all tore apart EXCEPT for the flywheel (I guess that's what it is) or maybe it's the cone clutch that...

you are on the right track.. you will need a torx bit for the screw in the middle of the clutch cone, your local auto parts store should have them, I think it's #15 but not sure, pull your spark plug out and put cord into cylinder to stop crankshaft from rotating while you remove this screw, next you need to remove clutch by using a screwdriver or brass rod and giving it a hard smack with a hammer, should be an arrow showing which way off, once that is off then you can finish dismantling the case and fix your spring and rope

I have a troybilt tb-144 4 stroke mini tiller. The pull cord, pulls and retracts as it should, but is not engaging the engine when pulled...

remove the top cover. look inside while pulling rope briskly, you should see two dogs fly out and retract when the cord reaches its end. if not, check for dirt in the system and clean out. if no dogs, you will have to remove the system from the housing, be careful of the spring. check for any broken drive parts. also check flywheel cup for damage where the dogs come into contact with it.
