I would check that I didn't have a key sheared off in the flywheel, that the start/stop switch isn't faulty, and that there is no missing or weak flywheel magnet. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I recommend cleaning the filter with gasoline if its foam or replacing it if its paper. If this doesn't fix the problem you should remove the carburetor (in between the air filter box and the engine) and cleaning it thoroughly with carb cleaner from your local parts store.

Check your wire connections and make sure nothing is touching the metal case. sometimes the double crimped connector for coil wire has a wire strand hanging out. Check without wires on for short then attach one at a time checking each time for short. could be defective condenser . Thanks for using fixya.

I don't think my tiller is getting any juice to the sparkplug. I changed the sparkplug and air filter, checked the oil and gas, but it still won't start.


disconnect the kill wire on the motor and then see if you get spark. If so its your switch, if not it either points or electronic coil or regular coil or condenser problem did you gap the pints correctly and was there a problem b4 you changed the points.

could be bad coil. does it stay running with choke on? or half on, if so its a gas problem. could be the main jet is plugged in the carb. Or water in the carb bowl. Remove the bowl nut and let some gas run out the put it back in and try it. just guessing as not much info to go on.

I need a owner's manual for a early 80's Troy-bilt Horse tiller It hasn't been used for a couple of years and we can't get it started. Want to make sure I have the correct spark plug and the correct fuel...


Ebay has manuals on CD for $6.99 with free shipping. If the spark plug is firing when you crank the engine you probably have a gummed up carburater and it will have to be cleaned. They will do this when they set for a while. Not sure if that will have points and condenser or not but if it does and will not fire they will have to be cleaned or possible replaced also.

I have an older Troy-Bilt Pony Garden Tiller witha


From what I read you need a new rewind clutch and the spring and cord go into the housing. Briggs is easy to fix. contact me at kerryjonjon@yahoo.com and I can send you what you need or you can send it to me and I will repair it very cheap!! Parts are available at almost any small engine parts place.

I have 1980's model troy built pony tiller that won't fire


Great machine, I had one. The points need replacement. Look for a gadget that replaces the points. I found mine in PepBoys. Search the Internet, the cost was about $5.00.
