The tines are not moving forward on my Rotavator. The engine is Tecumsah Vantage 50. The tines move backwards and the engine seems fine. The rotavator will not move forward


I have seen a number of domestic rotavators but haven't yet seen one with a reverse gear. You didn't make it clear in your description whether yours has a reverse gear and that is all that is working or whether it usually only moves forward but is moving backwards?

While it is theoretically possible for a 2-stroke engine to run backwards, your engine is a 4-stroke that is incapable of running backwards and so it would seem the gear selector is stuck if it has one or someone has carried out repair work and made a mistake or something else is broken.

The only thing that comes to mind is some of the older designs used an over-long drive belt that crossed in the middle like a figure eight in order to reverse the driven pulley and replaced the belt with one that seemed the right size would cause the machine to run backwards.

More information needed, perhaps...

Tires and tines will not engage


model number would be VERY helpful here because craftsman made many different styles/models throughout the years

I have a Yard Machine rear tine tiller that has sat unused for 4 years. I replaced the engine and while in goes forward and backward, when I engage the tines they won't rotate and the engine bogs


Transmission/differential.
Perhaps the unit sat for 4 years because the tines would not turn and your replacement engine has not solved the real problem.
I'd say disassemble the chain case to discover what's locking the tine drive.

My tiller does not seem to be cutting deep enough


Hi there kimberly,

Here's what you need to do.
  • Make sure the depth stake (behind the tines) is up as high as it will go. This will allow the tines to go deeper.
  • Fire it up. Set the tine rotation to reverse (more mixing and twisting.
  • Make sure the tines are actually turning, Each side is held in place with a shear pin. In case something binds the blades, this pin breaking will save the drive train
  • Note how the tiller is balanced. Wheels in the middle. You can tilt it forwards or backwards.
  • Tilting forward allows the wheels to gain traction and move the unit forward
  • Tilting Backwards allows the tines to dig in. If the surface is too hard, Press down with your body weight. It will dig through.

I hope this work out for ya

Best regards
Mike

When going forward the tines are going in reverse


I've never seen one of these so excuse my ignorance. Is it possible that the cable to change from forward to reverse is out of adjustment? Can you go to where the cable attaches to the shifting mechanism, detach it and manually try to change from reverse to forward? Hope this helps. Good luck!

I have power to the tines but the wheels are locked


Tines only spin in the T position.with cutch engaged.If thats not it split the case and check to see the shift fork operating properly. Or that chains are not broke. NOTE This is a serious job!!!
