the tines are usually connected with shear bolts designed to break away when u hit something as a safety precaution so that u dont break anything in the transmission. its common that people dont know this and replace them with normal bolts. if this was done and the tines are not moving now chances are uve got a snapped gear shaft

SOURCE: Yard Machine rear tine 6hp tiller that wont start.

Ok, what's happening, is your carburetor metering hole is plugged. When you place your thumb over the carb, it draws fuel through the primer circuit to feed the engine instead. What you need to do, is clamp off the fuel line, take the nut off the bottom of the carburetor bowl, and clean that nut. Look closely at it; there is a hole that goes down the center of it, and a hole that goes through it side to side towards the bottom. These make a "T" shape inside the nut. You need to make sure that these are completely clear and clean. The one at the bottom is very small, and plugs easily. You usually need a small piece of wire to clean it, such as a single strand from a wire brush. You can use carburetor cleaner to loosen it up a bit, but the important part is to clean that hole out. You also need to make sure that the float moves freely up and down while you're in there. If it sticks in the up position, it will starve fuel as well. Also look closely at the gas that came out when you did this. Was there any water in it? If so, let a bit drain out before putting it all back together.(unclamp the fuel line). Hope you have it back online soon.

Testimonial: "Nut was clogged. Now it starts but acts as it is in choke position, dont think there is a choke. Engine reves, falls, reves falls but stays going."

You will have to get into the gearbox. It isn't too hard but is time consuming. Sounds like the drive for the tiller has broken. Could just be the chain in the gearbox for the tiller drive.

Tiller Trouble 3/18/12


You might try using an upper cylinder lubricant to free it up. Use a very light oil such as marvel mystery oil and begin with placing a few drops on top of the piston - you will have to take the spark plug out in order to insert the oil. Let it sit overnight with the oil and then try turning it over with the rope. Hope this helps.

My rear tine tiller, 18 inch - model #21AA40M1029 by yard machine has been sitting in my storage shed for two years and will not crank. I have changed the old spark plug with a new one and I have drained...


need to check for spark---- magneto [magnet-pulse to coil] may have rust causing failed spark can clean lightly with sandpaper but more than likely u need to clean the carb-buy a rebuild kit about 10 bucks -take off carb tear apart and let soak in parts cleaner use a carb cleaner and spray all the nooks and crannys in carb rebuild replace and try firing up because more than likely the carb is completely gummed up from the old gas

Hi Yard Machines rear tiller looks like 216-430-000 but no numbers on mine. was running tilling fine when all of a sudden tines stopped spinning. When shifting to till feels like no positive engagement....


There is a SHEAR pin that could also be broken. It's there to protect the sprocket from breaking in the event of hitting a rock or something large while tilling. You will have to go to the MTD website who makes Yard Machines, to get the directions on changing the pin or the chain whatever the case may be.

Broken clutch cable connector, MTD Tiller


I found micro fiche on jackssmallengines.com . Click on the manufacturer's tab at the top of the page then you'll have the option to use an off-site tool to locate your machine. I used it and found my 1990 mtd rear tine tiller. I needed the cable that engages the tines - maybe the same as you. The part number for my 1990 model's cable was 746-0535. Dont know if it was still the same in 96 to 98. But look at the fiche and see.
