You can get a pull rope at wal-mart.measure the belt and any parts store or place that sells lawnmower belts should have one.if the rope broke close to the end knot just pull the end knot with some needle nose pliers.once you have all the old rope out lay the old rope pieces on the ground and cut the new rope to match it as far as length.turn the pulley that the pull rope goes in six turns counerclockwise.then turn the slot the knot was in to the hole the pullrope goes thru and fish it thru then pull it up and out with apaiar of needlnose have someone hold the pulley until you tie a small knot in the end of the pullrope the hold the pullrope and let it pull it in.you might have to cut some off at the handle if its still too long.to do this pull some rope out and tie a quick knot so the rope can't slip back if you let it go.

My craftsman 5hp tiller hit large rock, tines stopped, loud noise followed and now pull string won't budge. Why?


most tillers are equipped with a shear pin down by the tines. for this reason. if you hit something it will shear the pin and not do damage to your machine. it don't sound like that happened here. make sure the tines are disengaged. if the rope wont pull it may have sheared the flywheel key. there are videos on you tube that will show you how to take off the cover, the flywheel and check to see if this has happened. it may have locked the engine up at the worst scenario.

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 6 hp yard machine tiller has a problem when you pull the rope. It has a hard **** or pull back when you pull on the rope. Is the engine out of timing. Thanks JD James It is approx. 4 years old...


sounds like the timing is off.
need to remove the pull cord cover and take the nut off on the shaft and take the cover off and see if the key on the shaft is broke and put a new one on.
when you hit something solid the key will shear.

I have a MTD yard machine rear tine tiller. Goes forward and reverse but tines wont rotate. How do I fix?


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.

On my tecumseh tiller the rope broke and the setup has rivets instead of screws is there another way to get it off without removing the rivets?


I'm guessing you have a 3.5 or 4HP 4 stroke with the recoil built into the top of the housing? If so, just remove the entire blower housing. It's only 4 bolts. You can then disassemble the recoil assembly to replace the rope.

Help, new craftsman rear tine tiller stopped tilling.


It sounds like the belt just stretched. Now you need to move the belt tensioner over to put more pressure on it.
