We purchased a mantis 2 cycle garden tiller new and have only used it 3 times. it has only been used maybe 1 hour total and now it wont start at all. what can we do to get it to start?


Empty mantis fuel tank. Remove and check spark plug. Replace with Champion CJ8Y or NGK BPM7Y if necessary. Gap is .6mm - .7mm or .024" - .028". Prepare fresh fuel/oil mixture. Add fresh fuel to tank along with 2 ounces of 100% acetone (available at walmart) - this will remove deposits inside of mantis from sitting for prolonged periods. Try to start several times. If unsuccessful let mantis sit for a while. Do this several times if necessary. Eventually it will try to start. If it will not remain started then you are successful in completing the previous section. Next you need to watch this video and do what it says. It is actually quite simple.

Mantis will not start - has good fuel and new sparkplug


Check spark plug gap and functionality of throttle. I all is OK it could be flooded. If flooded. Remove spark plug and pull cord a helf a dozen time to clear it out. Replace plug with correct gap and start her up! Gap is .035-040 inches. If you don't have a guage, 40 thou is about 1/6".

MANTIS TILLER DOES NOT RUN SMOOTH AT HIGH RPM.


Check to make sure it is getting good spark from coil. Make sure proper plug and plug gap is installed. Check for fuel flow to carb and make sure carb is adjusted properly.

Need spark plug gap. and carb setting


gap should be about .020 - Carb setting is adjusted while running - lo idle and hi - lo idle adjusted to the lowest RPM before it stalls or starts running rough, the hi is adjusted at full throttle for the smoothest / highest rpm

What is left to do but change the flywheel?


check what they call air gap between the coil and flywheel .010-.012 gap
also be sure your flywheel is in time.
you will actually have to remove it to do this and check for the sheared key or be sure the key way aligns with the crankshaft keyway on the flywheel

Mantis 2-stroke tiller won't start


This could be one of several problems...
• Last year's fuel. Get some fresh gas.
• Every 2-stroke needs a new spark plug each year... you know what that means.
• Clogged carb jets due to storing the tiller over the winter with fuel in the system. Never, ever do that. Now you'll need to pull the carb apart and clean it. Most of the orifices are so tiny you can't see them. Good luck.
• Engine is so old the crankshaft seals have hardened with age. This is one reason no 2-stroke lasts longer than about 8 years. If the seals are shot, then it will cost more to fix than a new one costs. Time to toss it.

I have a brand new mantis 2 cycle tiller which won't start. I don't believe I'm getting a spark through the plug. Does anyone know what the gap should be for the sparkplug?


when trying to test for spark. remove it from the cylinder hole. attach it to the plug cable (the part that normally attaches to it but you had to take off to remove the spark plug) then hold it to any steel part of the engine or a table... try not to shock yourself. that method does work, but it isn't good for you, especially if you have an unknown heart condition. if there is no spark, check the gap. usually about .2, and then try again. if there is still no spark you may need to check the timing and armiture on your engine.
