Question about Mtd Products Yard Machines 158CC Tiller

1 Answer

I have a 1996 MTD front tine tiller that was left in someone's shed for about five years. I have emptied the fuel and oil from the tiller and want to rebuild or replace the carburetor and fuel line before I fill them back up. Any body know where I can get the parts and a tutorial?

See if you can find the model number on the engine and then go to the Briggs and Straton web site for the manual for the engine. The tiller manual will not have engine info in it. I hope this helps.

It is the shift fork in the transmission. Bad part design and if you plan to take it apart, use sandpaper and really clean the wheel axle and tine axle before you take it apart.

It sounds as if you still have Carburetor problems.

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked.
(If there is a small screen in the Carb., this can get blocked too. Make sure that it is clean as well.)

Reassemble and start. (If there is a small screen in the Carb., this can get blocked too. Make sure that it is clean as well.)

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

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.
