    Sunneyskies I want to thank you for your input. My carberator is mounted on the gas tank. i pulled it off and cleaned the detachable pickup filter. i pulled out the needle and seat it was clean and free. the hotter the engine gets it seems the quicker it dies. If you have any other thoughts i would appreciate them. Again thanks so much for your help.

Hi.....I am assuming that you have a bowl type carberator on that tiller. If so, the bolt on the bottom of the bowl, is the main jet. If you remove it, you SHOULD, see a hole drilled from the top down to a hole cross drilled thru, near the bottom. Run a small wire thru these to be sure they are clean. Other then this, I'd install a new needle and seat. You can purchase just a needle and seat set, no need for a complete rebuile kit. You will also need a bowl gasket, and if you have a primer bulb, you will also need a new intake gasket or the primer will not work worth a darn. Hope this is of some help, good luck

Purchased hahn tiller 5hp briggs stratton with broken tines and bearing and seal leaks. where can i get parts


Parts for the engine can be purchased from briggs and stratton
The bearings and seal can be purchased from Napa. Dimensions are required for the bearing inner and outer diameters. (Caliper time)
The tines.... I don't know. My experience on the tines is you either find an old Hahn Eclipse Tiller for parts or you find a good craftsman that can make one. I had to make a LH tine using the broken parts, some forge hardened bar stock and a welder. The tine manufacture took much longer than expected...!

Can't find filler plug on transmission


Jim the older tillers did not have a place to put grease in. You have to break the case apart then it takes 00 grease. These are sealed units and don't need additional grease. Check with Sears.com parts lookup for a new manual. I am on my second Craftsman r/t tiller now rebuilt the transmission on the first and wore it completly out then bought a new about 8 years ago. About to rebuild the transmission on it.

Sounds like the worm gears are worn to the point they will not engage.
