SOURCE: 5 hp Briggs and stratton wont run on a MTD tiller.

I had the same problem a few years back. Check the rubber elbow coming from the gas tank to the carb, it's probably cracked and sucking air instead of fuel from the tank.

Sounds like a depth adjustment or a leverage problem.
Check your manual to see if you are able to lower the tines to a deeper position.
There usually is also a handle adjustment to raise the handle to get more leverage. (Not all Models) By pulling back on the handle it forces the tines into the soil and raises the tires. This allows the tines to agitate and do the work while at the same time walking the machine forward. When you push up on the handle the rubber tires provide traction and forward movement and less digging on the tines.
Method: Possibly by allowing a little space between passes your wheels won't hang up in the previous dead furrow. You can then go back over the skipped spaces or cultivate from the other direction and a criss cross pattern.
Best wishes,
TF

Tiller takes of and can't control where going


There should be a handle you pull to engage the tines and drive wheels. A cable runs from the handle to the drive pulley that essentially 'puts it in gear' when the handle is pulled. Either the cable is not disengaging when you release the handle or it needs adjustment. First try spraying some liquid wrench or WD40 at each end of the cable and pull the handle a few times (take care not to get any on the drive belt). This may free it up. Otherwise check your owner''s manual for the procedure to adjust it properly. Good luck.

MTD series 410 rear tine tiller drive wheels slip


I have the same issue with one I am working on. It appears the keys in the drive shaft are not rotating far enough out on the drive gear side to fully engage in the gear. I have studied and studied this and so far I have been unable to determine why. If I find out I will let you know. I am also trying to figure out what is supposed to pull these keys out of the till engagement gear.

MTD Snowblower starts good but runs very rough


Carb adjustment. There is usually a HIGH and LOW fuel mixture adjustment on the carb. Sounds like the LOW needs to be adjusted. Do a search on the Internet for a service manual for your particular model/make. Simple job IF you have the manual there for guidance.
Good Luck

Belt seems to be slipping


good evening. I would suggest checking the tine bearings as well alignment. I had (have) a 2003 mtd rear tine which blew the entire bearing box for the second time. The times should have little to no flex when push or pulled. Fortunately, MTD came good for the first rebuild even though my warranty had expired...they covered the parts and labour was all mine. If the tines seem properly working, possibly try out this website to get the 100% correct belt....hope this helps.
