I don't know exactly what you have there, but starters in general work pretty much the same. What you have to do with any starter when you replace the rope is to first wind the spring with the pulley. Turn the pulley in the direction it would be turning if you were pulling the rope. When it's wound tight, back off to align the rope hole in the cover and the pulley. Stick the rope through from the outside through the cover and pulley and tie a knot. Then let the spring tension pull the rope into the starter. Hope that helps. Dwain

This is a Troy Bilt Big Red Horse Tiller. Wont crank. new battery. ignition switch good. starter relay clicks when ignition switch turned. jumpering the relay makes the starter spin.


The starter solenoid/relay clicking can mean a bad starter solenoid/relay or bad grounding. Not knowing what engine you have as they have used Kohler, Tecumseh and Briggs and Stratton over the years. hope this helps

I have a troybilt pony tiller made on 1/22/79. On the transmission there is this number P35944...at least it looks like a P, not sure on that digit. Farther back on transmission near the tines, there is...


One is a serial number and the other is a part number ... This tiller was built in Troy, New York by Gardenway Manufacturing. Unfortunately, that family owned company is out of business. Whether there is still manufacturing in Troy New York, I am not sure but it is not the same company today as it was in 1979.

The assets, including the name, were purchased (and some sold) by several manufacturers, notably, MTD. The Troy products sold today are similar to the Troy products of the Gardenway Manufacturing. In my experience, there is no better customer service than that I received from GardenWay. The 6.5 was a big Pony ... I purchased a Horse about the same time and it is a 6.0 hp Techumsa. I am on my second engine and I wouldn't take twice the $ for it.

This tiller probably cost in the vicinity of $800.00 delivered.

There is a company in Canada that has specs on most Troy Models ... and access to lots of Troy parts, though thre are lots of other places that sell parts and have diagrams as well.

At one point Briggs was making 'flails' for the Troy Chipper Shredder ...

I hope this helps you with your tiller ... It is a teriffic machine.

Here is an interesting discussion board ... if you are interested: http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/tools/msg1108413014912.html

Broken pull cord on my manual start Troy-bilt Pony tiller - is this an easy do-it-yourself project?


It's definitely do-it-yourself in that no special tools or skills are required, but it can be a little tricky. You can see that the the recoil starter is in an assembly which is spot welded onto a metal cover. You have to remove the entire metal cover that includes the recoil starter. There may be 6 to 10 screws to remove to do that. When you get it off you will see a plastic spool that holds the cord. This spool is probably held in place by a couple of metal tabs that are bent down. Bend those tabs up with pliers. Underneath the spool is a spiral spring that provides the recoil. Take careful note of how this all goes together. Buy a new cord (available by the foot at a hardware store) and wrap it around the plastic spool. Use a piece of tape to hold the end of the new cord above the spool so you can thread it through the hole in the metal housing later. Put the spring and the spool in place, then wind the spool to put tension on the spring - about 5 turns in the direction that would push the string out through the hole. Once you have the spring "wound up" remove the tape and thread the end of the cord through the hole. Now bend those metal tabs back down. Put the handle on the cord end (or tie a knot) to keep the spring from pulling the end of the cord back through the hole. Reassemble the rest and you are in business.

Troy bilt hasn't been used in 2yrs.; has oil and gas in it but will not electric or pull cord start...


1st I would drain the gas and put new in. It loses octane over time. Then try new spark plug. Also you may need a new diaphram in the carburetor. They are cheap and sell them at most hardware stores.

I have an older Troy-Bilt Pony Garden Tiller witha


From what I read you need a new rewind clutch and the spring and cord go into the housing. Briggs is easy to fix. contact me at kerryjonjon@yahoo.com and I can send you what you need or you can send it to me and I will repair it very cheap!! Parts are available at almost any small engine parts place.

remove the spark plug.  And pull the cord again.  if the carb float is stuck down or you overfilled the oil you could be hydro-locking the engine.  Check.
