    No I have the same problem and I think I understand the question better...though I could be wrong so forgive me if so......This tiller will run for about 5 or 10 minutes when cold, when it gets hot it will rev up and over power.....It can be managed a little bit with the hand throttle, but finally the engine gives up and shuts down and you need to let it cool before it will start again. I was reading somewhere else that the richness needs to be adjusted, but I just read that...this year I actually opted to use my shovel instead of my tiller because this stalling is a real hindrance. Then I started looking around the net today and found some advice I am going to give a try, which is adjusting the fuel richness.

    another thing is use marine gas it has no alcohol in it witch eats up the rubber in the carb. just the diagram and a needle fixes it .. about a 10 min job.. oh use never seize on the exhaust bolts , so it can be serviced for years..

    THAT'S THE NEADEL SEAT OR A STUCK FLOAT or on a diaphragm type carb the diaphragm is hard and needs to be replaced, these carb kits are around 10 $. remember to always have extra spark plugs on hand they can be a quick fix for 2 stroke motors. jay

My Earthquake Rear Tine Gas Rototiller - 196cc Viper Engine 4-cycle just makes a squeeling noise and tines won't rotate.


Sounds like the belt is slipping. Have you removed the belt cover and inspected the belt and the tensioner pulley ? If your model is like mine the tension can be adjusted just below the handles by looseneing the nut where the cable goes into the cable sheath and moving the cable cover further away from the handle. That takes up some slack and will make the tensioner pulley tighter on the belt. If the belt is shot tension isn't going to help.
Try "google" with "earthquake 5070 manual" first option should be a PDF copy of a model 5070 manual. Will have diagrams on how to adjust the cables.

Earthquake tiller viper 43cc engine will not start


I have the same issue, I thought it was the carburetor so I cleaned it and put it back together, same issue, I put a new carburetor on it same issue, has great spark, if I spray carb cleaner into it, it will start and run for a few seconds even throttle up, but then it dies, and will not start again without carb cleaner spray, and fuel is fresh and properly mixed, very confusing indeed.

I have a new Rear Tine Earthquake 6065 electric start 196cc rotor tiller. It runs 5 mins. then stalls and dont start. The first time i thought i was short on clean feul so i filled it. it ran about same...


see if it keeps running with the fuel cap a little bit loose. if so the vent hole in the cap is plugged up and not venting. this causes vacuum in the fuel system and starves the engine of fuel. good luck

Viper engine on my earthquake tiller starts fine cold then dies after fifteen minutes and wont restart


You probably need a new coil, if it is a 2 stroke then it will almost certainly be the coil. The defect is very typical and recognizable.
