Make sure that the linkage rod or cable is connected correctly. You should be able to see the throttle plate move with the choke open.

Most definitely. You aren't getting enough gas, probably because the float valve is gummed up. Drain the gas, put in a little carb cleaner and a little fresh gas. Fire it up. Do that a couple of time if needed, then fill tank with fresh gas. Use a gas stabilizer like Sea Foam to prevent this.

Troy built tiller starts chugs along and then kills full size mod

I'm sorry you are having trouble with your Troy-Bilt Tiller. I have a genuine Troy-Bilt and I miss the original manufacturer and the help they provided me with my 30 year old machine.

I believe your trouble is in the needle valve adjustment. If you check the bottom of the carb, you will find the needle valve. It should be open about 1 1/2 turns and then fine tuned open or closed a bit to get the best speed. There is the possibility that your carb is dirty inside and could benefit from some carb or injector cleaner. You may also benefit from installing a new spark plug as well. Sometimes, in older engines, you can benefit from using a spark plug one or two heat ranges higher. You will have to experiment with these options to find the best for your situation.

I hope you find these suggestions to be of some benefit.

Thank you for posting your question on

Hi there i have a troy built honda engine 2500 2.3 pressure waqsher and can not get it started. it will start for just a moment and then just die. almost sounds like it isnt getting gas but ive checked...

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (, to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. You can also use the Den Tek Brush to clean the jet in carb. if it has one. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Troy Bilt Tiller and Pressure Washer

The carbs are plugged. Take the bowl off the carburetor by loosening the nut on the bottom. You'll want to clamp the fuel line before you do this. That nut has a small hole that goes through the nut from side to side, and one that connects them in the center. Use a wire brush to knock all the deposits loose, making sure that the holes are clean and free of obstruction. Put it all back together, and it should run fine.

Tiller will not keep running

Have you tried squirting gas into carburetor to see if it will keep running? If that keeps it running as long as you are squirting gas in it, your carb need to be cleaned out/repaired.

Troy-Bilt Tuffy 2006 model keeps having weird engine problems

Make sure you haven't used ethanol-blended gas in a briggs small engine. It will destroy the plastic internal carb pieces, thereby causing your carb to leak gas into the crankcase and flooding out the engine. If you check your gas it will be really thinned out, gassy smelling and black. It will also be overfilled.
