It is indicated that the main jet in the carby is blocked or there is water in the fuel
Check that the filter in the tank or line is not blocked first.

SOURCE: Yard Machine rear tine 6hp tiller that wont start.

Ok, what's happening, is your carburetor metering hole is plugged. When you place your thumb over the carb, it draws fuel through the primer circuit to feed the engine instead. What you need to do, is clamp off the fuel line, take the nut off the bottom of the carburetor bowl, and clean that nut. Look closely at it; there is a hole that goes down the center of it, and a hole that goes through it side to side towards the bottom. These make a "T" shape inside the nut. You need to make sure that these are completely clear and clean. The one at the bottom is very small, and plugs easily. You usually need a small piece of wire to clean it, such as a single strand from a wire brush. You can use carburetor cleaner to loosen it up a bit, but the important part is to clean that hole out. You also need to make sure that the float moves freely up and down while you're in there. If it sticks in the up position, it will starve fuel as well. Also look closely at the gas that came out when you did this. Was there any water in it? If so, let a bit drain out before putting it all back together.(unclamp the fuel line). Hope you have it back online soon.

This sounds like the float is sticking in the carb causing it to flood . You need to take the carb off and clean it and put a kit in adjusting the float per the instructions

Engine runs on half choke


You probably have some buildup in the carburetor, because tillers are gernerally used seasonally it leaves plenty of opportunities for buildup to occur . Also, you should inspect throttle cables and linkage to insure that everything intact.

Engine will crank with starting fluid, but dies.


Have you checked the spark plug and see if its clean and also check the fuel line and carburetor for clogs. And you can also check the air filter.

Hope you find this helpful.

Oil blows out of tube


You either have a head gasket going bad or your piston rings are shot which causes air to go down into the crankcase building up pressure which exits through the breather tube.
