Question about Troy Bilt Tiller/Edger 26cc, Model No. 21at144r766

I rebuilt my carb in my tecumseh 6HP engine. It ran perfectly after a test. I let it sit for a week, now I can't start the engine. It turns over, runs for a sec or two then shuts off. Any idea?

Possibly dirt got into the carb from the tank---you may have to clean the carb

I would suggest you replace the 2 coils. Also, is choke closing properly? The carb if never rebuilt, could cause this problem. A carb kit and 2 coils should not cost much, maybe 20 each for coils and 17 for carb kit. Make sure carb is adjusted properly with outboard in water and warmed up. Mixture screw should be turned in slowly clockwise until engine just pops(lean). Then slowly open it apprx. 1/8 turn. This will aid engine in starting next time. Also, make sure primer bulb firms up when squeezed.

First, try a new plug, then if still a problem ....

Assuming it's not pre-1985, then the ignition is solid state. To test - disconnect the 'kill' wire (usually black, but could be green or even red) coming from behind the cowling. Check for a spark. If OK, your problem is in the wiring. If still no spark, replace the coil.

If your engine IS ancient enough to have points, post back here and I'll advise.

Sounds like you have a wire grounding to the frame somewhere. Check the wires to see if you see any bare spots or frays. www.nnyparts.com

Generator hard to start and backfiring


Sound like you've done things in the correct order, tecumseh's are notorious for carb problems if you let as sit in them. Backfiring is timing related (flywheel key) or valve problems. I would take a closer look at the exhaust valve I don't believe it is closing all the way.
