After overfilling crank case with oil and fixing that issue. It is now very hard to pull through

remove the spark plug and pull the starter cord a few times. see if oil spits out when you do this. sounds like there is too much oil or maybe gas in the cylinder. let us know what you find after you do this.

I bought used mtd yard machine tiller it has 2 oil fills with yellow caps and 1 fill with a white cap what goes in this one?

The white cap is the actual oil fill, cause it's in a position where it's easier to pour oil into. The yellow ones are oil checks with dipstick, they all pour into the engine crankcase. You pour oil in through the white until you see oil come out of the yellow.
Just bought one myself.

Tiller won't start

Remove the airfilter and take a look at it. If it is dirty or has a lot of oil in it, that would explain why you can't start the machine. If that is the case get a new filter and you will be up and running.

please mark this answer as a fixya. thanks
