Question about Poulan Garden
Please recheck your fuel and oil mixture. Most times too much oil will cause these problems. If you are certain that is not the problem, please check the unpacking and assembly instructions - even if you had someone else assemble the tiller for you. Once in a while things get left where they are supposed to be. If you smoking is happen due to fuel system delivery issues - you may need to adjust the carburetor portion of your tiller if it is available to do so. Most instruction manuals will have a trouble shooting section for common issues and answers on how to fix them. Cheers!!

I had similar problem recently with 2007 Huskee MTD series 410. The shift assembly bent and couldn't move the clutch collar all the way over on the drive shaft.

Can you move the tines by hand???
They should turn by hand if you try to move them...if not then they are bound up by something...
either a bearing has gone bad, something has wrapped around them, or there is something stuck in there that will not let them turn...check for a rock stuck between one of the tines and the housing around them...
Get the tines moving freely and you will be okay again...

The spring goes in first followed by the ball. The ball should not get in the key way because that is filled by the slider pins that go up into the spur gear that drives the tines. Actually the slider pins drive all of the gears by engaging different gears as the gear collar is moved up and down. The detent spring and ball is the mechanism that is supposed to hold the the clutch collar in place. Mine jumps out of gear when tilling any depth except very shallow. I have reinforced the shifting forks and replaced the pins on the end of it. I believe that the pins wear and the arms spread because i have to keep pressure on the shifting rod or it will jump out of gear when tilling. Even with the reinforcing, pressure on the shifting rod will wear out the pins on the shifting arm. This will be my 3rd reassembly and I am leaning toward the detent spring being weak and allowing the shifting collar to move too easily. I may order an new spring and ball and see if that helps. I am getting pretty good at taking it apart.
