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.

SOURCE: do all yard machine tillers use sae 30--can't find

Can you find the model number and the serial number on the tiller? This should be on the tine housing in a 2" by 3" plaque (on the top where it's unlikely to be damaged in use). If you can, then you can find the manual here:
http://www.mtdproducts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OperatorManualView?storeId=10500&catalogId=20500&langId=-1 .

I don't want to assume what weight of oil you should use because your model may be different than the one in my shed.

I hope this helps.

If you lent your tiller to your "know it all"


While having your brother buy you a new tiller sounds good, it just might not be practical or posible. So drain the fuel from the tank, fuel lines and the carb., clean the spark plug and replace fuel filter if installed. Put the proper gas in and start it, should be good or clear up pretty quick. Hopefully it did not run with the wrong fuel for too long where the spark arrestor in the muffler would get clogged up.

Good luck.

I HAVE A 2009 FRONT TILLER 500 SERIES. RAN FINE LAST YEAR. THIS YEAR STARTS AND STALLS. NEW PLUG, OIL IS OK.AIR FILTER IS CLEAN. IT HAS A FUEL PROBLEM. I CAN GET IT TO STAY RUNNING WITH THE PRIMER.DOES IT...


There are a few things to look at.First and easiest is check the primer bulb and fuel line for any cracks,and the in line fuel filter.Next is a filter on the end of the fuel line,inside the tank.If all of that is ok there is a small screen in the carb. you will have to tear down the carb to get it.

Just helping someone who put gas in her oil fill. What do I need to refill oil? SAE 30 ?


Yes, the Tecumseh engine takes SAE HD30 motor oil. With a complete drain, it should take about 21 ounces to fill.
Good luck!

Carbartor


You need to pull the carburetor off and rebuild it.While your at it pull the gas tank and clean real good. Clean and blow out all the gas lines . Refill gas tank and put in a small amount of dry gas, read the dry gas label. Hope this helps. donnyb60

5 hp Briggs and stratton wont run on a MTD tiller.


I had the same problem a few years back. Check the rubber elbow coming from the gas tank to the carb, it's probably cracked and sucking air instead of fuel from the tank.
