I googled Earthquake 5020DM tiller and show a site that has a technical manual. It has the diagrams and parts numbers. It looks like the forward and reverse cable are the same. You may have to call ARDISAM direct to get the cable.

SOURCE: briggs and stratton model #917388520 6.5hp bought

If you had it shipped to you, I would change the oil as they usually ship with a junky oil that isn't very good. Take it to sears, see what you need done with it. Hopefully it is warrantied, and if you need briggs and stratton parts for it I wouldn't get em from sears, I always use ereplacementparts.com for any parts I need to repair my stuff. Good luck to ya.

Check for a clogged air filter.Try starting it without the air filter installed. Check for loose wires to the spark plug and ground. I am assuming there is gas in the tank, but does it get to the carb? Check the gas line, is it blocked? Is the carb leaking?

I assume you mean the primer bulb is imploding? I would check my gas cap by running it with the cap removed and see if it still happens. Sounds like you may have a plugged vent in the gas cap, causing a vacuum problem in the lines.

How is your compression? If it is low, your piston rings and/or the cylinder walls could be damaged and pulling oil up to the combustion chamber, which will burn oil and foul the plug. If you overfill the oil you could possibly get this also. When was the last time that you changed the oil and/or put oil in it? Do you currently have proper oil level?

does it have fresh gas in it, If so time to rebuild the carb, even though you blew through all holes there is a diaphram inside the carb that pumps gas to it, so I suggest you take the carb apart and clean inside out and replace the diaphram, the way you describe it only runs on primer, tells me the carb is not getting fuel. Good Luck

Cannot find drain to change oil.


Poulon 550 yellow 22" Briggs and Stratton. It looks like you have to drain it out the cap by tipping it. There IS no plug on mine - spent 40 minutes looking for one, and I know what both types of the plug look like. What a lousy design. This mower is a piece of junk. The valve froze a week after I got it. Never again. A headache.

Water will cause problems like this. Ethanol in the fuel causes the water in the air to pool in the tank. 2011 engines will be equipped with a better orfice that will not corrode from the water. You might contact a local dealer like www.arcolawn.com and get the updated tube.
good luck

The 'primer' doesn't work on my mower's Briggs & Stratton engine. Is there an easy fix?


You can try pumping primer bulb 10-15 times instead of 3 or 4 that manual probably suggests. We have a craftsman 22 inch cut push mower with a 3.5 H.P. BRIGGS &STRATTON engine and if you don't prime it at least a dozen times it will not start. It is possible that you have a small hole in your primer bulb in which case it can't create suction to bring gas to carburator. If this is the problem you can purchase a new bulb and seal at most larger SEARS stores or service centers.I would guess that if you have manual for mower you can get part number and phone number to get new parts .Hope this helps. Thanks

Your carb needs to by cleaned out. Needs to be taken apart and cleaned with carb cleaner. There is also a gasket that needs to be replaced. It collapsed and not letting gas in the carb.
