Why won't my rotor tiller stay running after starting Its a briggs and stratton


95% of run ability problems are carb related. It needs to be disassembled and cleaned. Do you leave gas in it at the end of season,if yes always drain the tank and let it run till it stops next time before storage. Good luck

There is dirt blocking the fuel supply to the engine. You need to strip and clean the carb, preferably fitting a new carb kit at the same time. Clean out all the passages and orifices by blowing them out, but be careful of loosing small parts like filter screens and screws.

I also was having issues with an old 5 horse Troy Built tiller that would fire when gas was in the tank then stop running. If it's a Briggs and Stratton engine like the one I have it's probably you can remove the muffler to gain access to the side of the carb. Remove the four screws and the cover off the fuel pump diphram and check to make sure that the rubber isn't cracked or degraded. I replaced the one I had and it now runs like a champ.

The engine doesn't start. I didn't use it for several years. It started and ran well for about an hour; when I shut it off, I could not restart. I have tried the obvious...new plug, putting started


You need to give the carburetor a good cleaning, as well as the air filter. Chances are the carb. will need a new carb. kit since it has been years since you last used it. If you need tips on how to clean the carb., just let me know.

What year was the tiller made with model #135202 made


That model was made in the mid 1970's by several manufacturers. Most had a Briggs and Stratton Engine. You could call Briggs & Stratton Customer Support: (414) 259-5333. If anyone can get you the manual, perhaps they can.
