It sounds liker the jet in the bottom of the carburetor is clogged. You will need to clean it out with a piece of small wire and the engine should be able to get some fuel to run.

Have an old troy bilt tiller, spark plug gap for tecumseh engine


Hi Jesse:
SPARK PLUG AIR GAP ON ALL MODELS IS
.030 (.762MM)
NOTE:
Not all spark plugs have the same heat range or reach. Using an incorrect spark plug can cause severe engine damage or poor performance. Tecumseh uses all three of the reaches shown.
Ta Da!

Looking for a recoil cup for a Troy-bilt chipper vac model 47282 with a tecumseh engine H5065582V. Thanks JR


Tecumseh part #36221 should be the starter cup you are looking for. It is available through www.partstree.com or try your local repair shop. Any shop that handles Tecumseh parts should be able to order it for you.
Good luck!

What size engine does a troy bilt jr have


The ones I have owned had a 4HP Tecumseh on them but I think some of the real old ones might have had a 3 1/2 HP Tecumseh.

I have an old pressure washer that uses Tecumseh H30 engine. After pumping the choke bulb on the carb, it will crank, run maybe 5 seconds and quit. Thanks


When you get it started, move the choke to the middle, then let it warm up. you might have to move the choke back and forth until it warms up, keep the throttle wide open.

I can't move my Troy-Bilt tiller unless it's running.


Some Troy Bilt Tillers were designed with a manual "free-wheel". If yours is a Tuffy (and maybe a Junior), you have to pull pins out of the wheels to move the tiller without starting it. The larger tillers, Pony's and Horses, had a lever to shift to release the wheels.

Need manual for a Troy-Bilt Tuffy tiller


Your engine number is wrong by only one character. The proper number is H30-35387S you had a 5 instead of the S. You can download the engine manual from Tecumseh. I don't know about The rest of the tiller. (I have the same tiller).
