I have an old (1960's) troy-bilt junior model tiller and have never had an owner's manual. I noticed the gearbox appears low on oil. What weight oil does the transmission take?

You should use straight 140W gear oil. I get mine at O'Reily Auto Parts for around $13 per gallon.

    I should also mention the the transmission as a small pipe plug on the side above the wheel. Pull your depth adjustment up so that the tines are resting on the ground then remove the plug and see if oil starts seeping out. if oil seeps out the level is good if not just add gear oil from the large plastic plug on top untill it starts running out the pipe plug hole. The transmission case is not designed to be filled to the top.



    Thanks Frank

Where do I find the model number and serial number, it is an old troy bilt rear tine tiller, two speed


The older models do not have an actual model number but only a name to distinguish the size. Early production models include the Horse, Pony and Junior. You must find the location of the serial number tag to order parts that will fit your particular rototiller for seamless replacement of parts. Hope this will help
