Have an RT 160 M&W 3pt tiller with 4 tines (teeth) per rotor, but there is room for six. Question if going to 6 would be smoother operation or ''not a good idea''.

the tines are usually connected with shear bolts designed to break away when u hit something as a safety precaution so that u dont break anything in the transmission. its common that people dont know this and replace them with normal bolts. if this was done and the tines are not moving now chances are uve got a snapped gear shaft

First check for spark, if you have spark than you can try spraying a little fuel into the carb and try to start it if it starts then dies its the carb

SOURCE: Honda GX25 HG110 mini tiller, tines won't turn.

Mine did the same thing....two things to check: 1) air cleaner, make sure that it is clean 2). gas filter in the gas tank. Take a short piece of wire and fish the black line out. On the end is a small fuel filter. After I flushed mine fuel filter out it ran fine.

The problem lies in the shift lever in the gearbox. A poor initial design that was upgraded twice. The shift fork arms have spread enough for pins to come out of the groove they run in when the tiller is shifted to the last position. (Bending back into position would only be a temporary fix as would not be any stronger.) To replace shift lever, the gearbox cover has to be opened. Seperating the cover can be somewhat challenging. When prying cover apart try to not damage the cover gasket. Gearbox grease is very thick, so gasket's real purpose is to keep water and contaminants out. Leave all gearing and chains in place. The shift lever part number is 618-0245B. Or use assembly kit number 753-0869 (contains shift lever 618-0245B, position indicator, and roll pin.) Part will run in the $56-$68 range and can be found through MTD as well as Cub Cadet. Also can get through Sears PartsDirect.

Oh, I hate to hear that. Most likely you will have to get into the gearbox to see what is going on. It really isn't that hard but it is time consuming. Make sure you pay close attention as to how you disassemble it. Good luck and let me know if I can help further.

This is another gearbox failure and seems to be quite common. You will have to remove the gearbox from the engine, open the gearbox up and inspect. Make sure you pay attention as to how it all comes apart and maybe even take close up pictures as you go. I hope this helps you.
