Old gas in tillers is always corroding the inside of the steel tank and the steel lines, clogging both the lines and filter and inlet at the top of the glass bowl. You can fix it by removing the tank and putting in some gas, some small stones and swishing them around to knock off all the rust scale, then replacing the steel lines with high temperature silicone fuel lines as used by radio control models for nitromethane motors. A new filter and a plastic gas tank avoid a lot of this rust clogging if you can get one to fit. If the rust has been sucked into the carb jet, use a bic pen tube with the refill removed and a small length of rubber hose to blow that out too. A good trick for small engines is to get a super tiny squirt bottle, remove the spark plug and squirt the electrode with gas. Replace and you will get about three revolutions of "firing" no matter what the condition of the carburator is.

could be bad coil. does it stay running with choke on? or half on, if so its a gas problem. could be the main jet is plugged in the carb. Or water in the carb bowl. Remove the bowl nut and let some gas run out the put it back in and try it. just guessing as not much info to go on.

Sounds like you have a dirty gas problem.
Empty the tank and remove it, clean it out and before refilling filter the gas to remove contaminants.
If this fails the problem is the carburator.
Remove it and disassemble and allow the body to soak in gasoline for about 15 minutes. the blow out all the port with compressed air and reassemble.
It doesn't take much to clog up those litte carbs.

I HAVE A 8HP HORSE TROYBILT TILLER. I CAN NOT GET ANY GAS INTO THE CARB. I HAVE CLEAN GAS, NEW HOSES, AND CLEANED THE CARB. THE FLOAT IS NOT STUCK, ANY HELP?


have you checked to make sure your fuel shut off valve is turned on? If you remove the fuel line at the tank( with something to catch the gas) and your fuel shut off is turned on and you get no flow then something is clogging the fitting at the tank or inside the tank. You will have to remove and clean the tank. Let me know how you come out.

Troy-bilt bronco leaks gas from the air filter hopusing. How can i fix this?


Leaking gas through the air filter ports can only mean excessive gas flow from the carburator. Try adjusting the flow screws on the carburator bowl. Check all gaskets, seals, etc. and happy tilling!

That's the engine number. It's a 6Hp Tecumseh. Go on ebay and buy the Troy Bilt parts manuals on CD for Horse Roto Tillers (if that's what it's on). I paid $8. Definitely worth it.

My Troy Bilt Self Prop. Z-start won't keep running. I clean All, replace Filter and Plug, have clean gas and lubed all. It Starts for 2 seconds and then cuts off. What do you think it could be? Thanks....


I had the same problem, Tilt the lawnmower on it's side air filter facing up and remove air filter cover and air filter then remove the fuel bowl underneath the carb; then clean the fuel bowl with some gas and a clean rag. For the next step be sure to aim blower tip at target then look away before pressing trigger, this will prevent gasoline form getting into your eyes.Take an air compressor and carefully clean out the carb where the flap is and the tube where the fuel float that would rest inside fuel bowl is. Leave on side install everything back except for air filter and cover. Then pour a little gas in the carb to prime it, lay the lawnmower back on all 4 wheels and try to start.

The carbs are plugged. Take the bowl off the carburetor by loosening the nut on the bottom. You'll want to clamp the fuel line before you do this. That nut has a small hole that goes through the nut from side to side, and one that connects them in the center. Use a wire brush to knock all the deposits loose, making sure that the holes are clean and free of obstruction. Put it all back together, and it should run fine.
