SOURCE: What could cause a rear tine tiller to disengage the tines when the tine shaft shear pins are not broke.

The PTO unit must be damaged.

Tiller runs great just having a problem with the tines turning plowed my garden last week and for some reason the tines quit turning like its locked or something please help me

Two possibilities. Something has jammed the tines.
Pull the spark plug wire off and tuck it away someplace so as not to touch the plug.
Tip the tiller up and examine the tines for obstacle such as a rock. If there is nothing jammed try to turn the tines by hand. If the they turn freely you most likely broke a shear pin that secures the tines to the axle.Clean the axle and tines and examine very closely for the pin.
If sheared ( broken) you will need to drive the broken piece out and replace the pin.
There may also be a problem in the transmission case. You would need to remove the tines and case to open it

Rear tine will not turn mod 21b-403-13144-0366-6 huskee

Could be the belt if it has one. If not then your problem could be as simple as a pin broken in the tine shaft. There is also a pin in a gear in the gear box also, This will require shop work.

good luck.

2 cycle Murray Ultra front tines, quit pulling, will turn if you hold the front end up, but put it down and they stop. need diagram or manual of tiller

I had the same problem. It turns out the gear box was bone dry.
Remove both the left side tines, there is a grease fitting below and
to the right of the tine shaft. Before adding grease remove the air vent screw
which is located above and a little to the left of the tine shaft.(It has a slotted head)
Pump in grease until it comes out the air vent. Replace the air vent screw and the tines.

It appeared to me that there was probably never any grease in it
as it took quite a lot to fill and when it finally came out the air vent it was
new grease, not discolored like you would expect to see when you
would be pushing some old grease out with the new.

Tiller tines run wrong way.

DEpending on the machine you can take the tines off and turn it around. The only other thing to do is get into the tranny and see why it is going into reverse gear and not forward operating. This sounds like it is a trans problem so even switching the tines around will help it will not solve the problem until it is looked at
