Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
There is a dipsitck on the side of the crankcase that has to horizontal marks on it. To remove the dipstick you unscrew it CCW. You must screw the dipstick in fully to check the oil level. You should fill the oil level to the highest horizontal line but NOT above that line.
If you can locate the engine model number I can find the exact specifications for the oil quantity for you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

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.

Ifound a Tecumseh Yard Machine Front Tine Tiller. It has a 5.50 HP. The tiller seems to choke out every time i crank it up. Can Someone tell mewhere the fuel filter is located???? i have replaced the air...


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.

Thee is no serial or model no. plate on my mtd yard machine tiller. I need a diagram of the gear mechanism, when I split it apart all the gears a nd chain fell out.


Had the same problem with my MTD Yard Machines 5 horse tiller. I called MTD at 800-800-7310 and with the model and serial and such off the engine - which are stamped into it - a nice lady was able to narrow down my tiller year. From there with horsepower details she narrowed further to one of two models that I could look up on the MTD corporate home page and get a schematic.
Hope that helps.

I HAVE A 660 SERIES MTD YARD MACHINE 17.5HP 42


If the speed seems to be different after changing the belts, it should return to normal after they break in.

The 600 series has a top speed of about 5 - 6 MPH, see:

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.

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.
