You can check the linkage that links the governor to the carb. If that is fine then you can check the fuel line for a blockage, the carburetor for debris, and if that is fine then you may want to try sanding the rust off the magnet (on the fly-wheel).

Engine runs on half choke


You probably have some buildup in the carburetor, because tillers are gernerally used seasonally it leaves plenty of opportunities for buildup to occur . Also, you should inspect throttle cables and linkage to insure that everything intact.

Choke is not hooked up to anything. What does the choke hook up to on a troy built tiller?


The choke (butterfly valve inside the carburetor) is attached to a lever on the side of the carburetor. This lever opens and closes the butterfly valve. Attach the choke cable to this lever.

Troy Bilt tiller dies when I engage the tines.


Bogging down may indicate debris or old gas in the carb. Try doing a carb cleaning, and add a small amount of Seafoam gas additive to your gas.

Troy bilt horse pto clutch will not disengage


The problem is lack of lubrication in the pto coupling. Losen the two swing bolts carefuly,block the front under the motor. Separate the tine transmision from the housing and grease both sides with as much grease as you can work in. Work the lever as you do this. Should fix the problem.
