Question about Troy-Bilt Pony Garden Tiller
I added some motor oil to my tiller and changed the spark plug. there is an oil fill on both sides of the tiller, Is one of these for the trans fluid? I bought this at a yard sale and can't find a engine manual on the net. But it will till for just a little and blow out blue or white smoke and just a few minutes fouled out the new spark plug.
When you say there is an oil fill on both sides of the tiller. If you are referring to the engine, then yes it does have two oil holes one on each side that requires the use of Briggs & Stratton SAE 30 oil. If you have filled this up until it's ready to overflow, then you have put too much oil in there. It should only be filled to the mark on the dip stick and no higher. If you did put more in to bring it up above the mark, then that would explain the reason for the blue and white smoke. It's trying to run and give you the power and you have given it too much oil to handle and therefore, causes the sump to dump the rest of the oil up the vent tube to the carburetor and in turn it will **** it back in and try to burn it. Hence, the fouling on the plugs. If this is not the case then you have an issue with piston rings or maybe even the cylinder walls. This motor has 3 rings. The top ring and the second ring are compression rings which aid in easier starts. The last ring is the oil ring which keeps oil from getting pass the other two rings. If that ring is worn you'll have to have a complete new set replaced. Also, if you find this to be true, have a dealer check your cylinder for possible out of round. Hope this doesn't scare you. But with all my years fixing these things, most of the problem is related to the customer and their lack of knowledge about the units.
Now if your referring to the gear box which you may be referring to as a transmission. This unit does not take trans fluid. This unit requires a special lube, more like a gear lube. Contact your nearest Briggs dealer and he will be able to inform you exactly as to what you need. Or contact Troy Bilt dealer, that'll even be better.
Good luck. Hope this clearify things for you.
