Where to look for a manual and parts for my 1970s Troy-built tiller w/7hp Kohler 161 engine

I've got an aftermarket carb coming. I can get my gas tank patched if need be. But I could really use the owners manual. I thought I was so slick using it as cover for another stack of "reference" material I had stashed in the garage. Looking back I realize Dad knew what I was up to all along. Sure love and miss you pops. I'm trying to keep the total cost of this resurrection under a couple hundred bucks but...

My 5 horsepower pony tiller just shuts off with no warning after about 20-30 minutes of tilling and will not restart again until it cools down to the touch I have changed the spark plug, drained and...


I also was having issues with an old 5 horse Troy Built tiller that would fire when gas was in the tank then stop running. If it's a Briggs and Stratton engine like the one I have it's probably you can remove the muffler to gain access to the side of the carb. Remove the four screws and the cover off the fuel pump diphram and check to make sure that the rubber isn't cracked or degraded. I replaced the one I had and it now runs like a champ.

If you have a spark plug wrench take out the spark plug look at it if it is all wet engine is flooded with gas,dry it and clean it if it is dry its not getting gas, try putting in a new spark plug. is there gas in tank , is switch on, is gas turned off, is the tank full, is the gas old and stinky? has the tiller sat for months carb may be plugged check ,engine oil level, try a little shot of engine starting fluid or gas sprayed into carb needle valve in carb may be pluged, float in carb may be stuck. tap on carburetor good luck

Gas tank leak


The gas tank would go with the engine. Find the engine number (Briggs & Stratton?, Kohler? ) You can order it online from Briggs & Stratton parts, or like Jack's small engine, or your local mower parts supply. Common poblem with these plastic tanks.

No use last year and stored with gas in tank now unable to start


The gas went bad in the carb, and probably clogged the carb jets. It may be necessary to remove the carb and soak it in carb cleaner. And carefully clean out the jet passages with a small wire.

Old (1981)Troy Prof. 8hp tiller runs 30 sec. and stops.


Clean the carb and if this machine was kept outside all winter make sure no water in tank. I realize you stated that you removed old gas but how it was removed is the key. Try the carb thing first though.

Troy Built 6.0 HP stored for winter. Fired up and


Most definitely. You aren't getting enough gas, probably because the float valve is gummed up. Drain the gas, put in a little carb cleaner and a little fresh gas. Fire it up. Do that a couple of time if needed, then fill tank with fresh gas. Use a gas stabilizer like Sea Foam to prevent this.

I have a horse model about 35 years old with a kohler motor 7 horse. What new motor fits. serial no. 360331


In my opinion, (which doesn't count for much, I know) the 7hp Kohler Troy Bilt Horse tiller was the best tiller ever made. Those tillers lasted forever if they were taken care of. I've got one of the 8hp Kohler versions, but it's just not the same.

It's become a lot harder to find an engine to replace these engines. You'll most certainly want to go to a Briggs and Stratton dealer and have them look it up. You need a 3/4" crank, 2 7/8" long with a keyway, tapped for a bolt to hold on the pulley and reverse disc. IF you find an engine to fit, you'll likely need to have a custom throttle cable made up to replace the current one. A good small engine dealer should be able to help you.

Now for the bad news. The 7hp Kohler was a cast iron engine. Any replacement engine you find will likely be an aluminum block with a cast iron sleeve and therefore, much lighter. What this means is the balance of the tiller, from front to back, is going to be thrown off. The result is - it will be MUCH harder to pick up the rear of the tiller when you want to turn at the end of the garden. You will most likely need to either put on one of the bumpers (if you can find one to fit) or figure out a way to hang some weight on the engine. I've seen people do some creative things to get the balance back. Whatever you do, it just won't be the same as that great 7hp Kohler. I'd suggest trying to rebuild it - if possible!
