Sounds like the tiller arm has a Kill switch in the end to shut the motor off. If it does there are two black and yellow wires in there and they are shorting to ground or to each other when the arm is lifted. This would shut the motor off when the are is lifted. The black and yellow wire is the kill wire on most outboards. If it grounds out and the engine will not run.

Sounds like a broken cable to the throttle body.

Check that both cables are intact.

Ticking noise in rear of 650 V star


lift rear end ensure wheel is straight, chain will tick if not running true. next step remove chain and turn wheel by hand, listen for noise, wheel should spin freely when spun, like once or twice around before it stops. sometimes also ticking sound from drum brake is just a loose lever from the brake pedal to drum. pads will not tick. to be really safe, remove wheel and take apart.

Honda FG100 Tiller - Tines wont move


I took the transmission apart and the gears were fine. The friction pads on the centrifugal clutch don't seem to make full contact with the drum. Does anyone know what the thickness of the friction pads are suppose to be? I used some belt dressing on the pads and got some movement on the tines. With no wear on the gears, I guess I'll be replacing the clutch.

The engine cuts out after it heats up


This seems to be a common issue as of late, i'd tighten up your idle adjustment so you can run at full throttle with no issue. The tiller's oil should be at the lower lip of the dip stick's access threading while the unit is laying face down (gas tank down). Clean up your carb as well and change your plug/filter, if this doesn't work than you're probably looking at some simple carb adjustments, but the fact it dies after 10 minutes of use makes me think it's running either dirty or too rich.

Wheels turn, tines don't


These machines have an arm to activate the tines independantly from the wheels, make sure that the tine arm is in the on position.
If not, seems like you have a transmission problem, you'll have to get dirty to fix this one and open up the transmission casing to see if its just the link between the tine arm and tine crankshaft that broke or if its more serious.
