SOURCE: Cannot keep tiller running
Could a gas/oil mix been used by mistake. When you cleaned carb did you also clean dusty air filter?? Try leaveing off filter first and run. Are you sure you are in "choke position" when engines seems to be running ok,be sure to double check yourself here. If engine runs ecelleant in "choke" sounds like your in "Run" position and positioning is problem not performance.
Please rate. Thanks jj505

Try better quality gas. I had the same problem. Ethanol too high in lower grade gas. Buy better grade or ethanol free. Mine works fine with better gas.

I'm sorry you are having trouble with your Troy-Bilt Tiller. I have a genuine Troy-Bilt and I miss the original manufacturer and the help they provided me with my 30 year old machine.
I believe your trouble is in the needle valve adjustment. If you check the bottom of the carb, you will find the needle valve. It should be open about 1 1/2 turns and then fine tuned open or closed a bit to get the best speed. There is the possibility that your carb is dirty inside and could benefit from some carb or injector cleaner. You may also benefit from installing a new spark plug as well. Sometimes, in older engines, you can benefit from using a spark plug one or two heat ranges higher. You will have to experiment with these options to find the best for your situation.
I hope you find these suggestions to be of some benefit.
