It may seem like it won't go, but it will angle out past the engine. Pull the shaft up a bit and angle it out the side between the engine and dash.

From what I read you need a new rewind clutch and the spring and cord go into the housing. Briggs is easy to fix. contact me at and I can send you what you need or you can send it to me and I will repair it very cheap!! Parts are available at almost any small engine parts place.

SOURCE: broken belt

The web site below sells Gilson belts - you need the part number. If you do not have the part number, maybe if you contact them, they can match the belt to your tiller number.

Also, another web store, Jacks small Engines ( states that they carry parts for Gilson, but I did not find Gilson in their directory. You may have to contact them.
One of the web sites mentioned that at some point Gilson was bought by Lawn Boy. If you go to a local Lawn Boy dealer, they may be able to match up a belt.
I have a 1978 WheelHorse tractor. The drive belt for the mowing deck broke. I went to Home Depot, spend a good 1/2 hour measuring belts, and found one that works perfectly. If you go to your local outdoor equipment shop, especially one that sells, repairs tillers, they may be able to match up a belt for you. A belt is a belt is a belt. If you go to a "good old fashioned shop" that will spend the time, they can measure the old belt and hopefully come up with a match.
Good Luck!

Replace the roller bearing on mantisworm shaft

I posted this same procedure in a reply to this post:

Follow the procedure for removing the worm gear shaft by removing the retaining ring at the bottom of the housing and extracting the worm shaft and other associated parts, Adding heat to the bottom of the housing to expand the hole will help the removal of the #458 roller bearing - with the housing in a vise, tap on the top of the worm shaft through the top hole of the housing with a punch or rod smaller than 1/2" in diameter. Then remove all grease from the housing - to eliminate the remaining roller bearing pieces that may reside in that grease. After total teardown and cleaning place the worm gear housing in a vise apply heat with a propane torch to the outside of the worm gear housing in the vicinity of the beaing location. Applying heat to this area will make the housing expand and make it easier to remove the remnants of the old bearing. With the housing still hot, take a punch or piece of 1/4" steel rod and insert it from the top hole, where the drive shaft goes in, there is a large ridge in the cast housing that the bearing mates against and immediately past that the bearing body will protrude just a little more into the cavity, with the rod against the bearing body gently and rapidly tap on the rod. You can look into the other side through the housing cover opening to be sure you are on the bearing and not the cast metal ridge. I just replaced that bearing this morning, be careful putting the new one in as well, they can be damaged very easily if you don't apply even pressure.

Tine shaft removal for mantis 2 cycle tiller

Put the tiller in a vise clamping on the bottom of worm gear housing. Remove worm gear housing cover. Clamp the worm gear at the top with a vise grip (I think Kuya Jon is correct in that you could skip this step because the transmission won't move when unscrewing, but I did it anyway just in case). Put a pipe wrench on the left tine shaft and unscrew it like it was a normal bolt. It's in there tight and it will take some force. When I unscrewed mine, the left bearing seal retainer, left bearing seal, and left bearing all came out with it. I just needed to replace the seals. I went to the right side, and with a screw driver carefully pried out the retainer. Then it's easy to just pull out the right seal with your finger. Put a new right seal in and insert the right retainer. Make sure the retainer is facing the correct way. I used a block of wood to tap mine in once I had it positioned because I was afraid to hit the retainer with a hammer. Now I put the tine shaft back in while holding the worm gear with the vise grip. Screw the shaft as far as it will go by hand and then go the rest of the way with a pipe wrench. Now came the tricky part. The right bearing did not slide right in. There was some resistance. I had to use a 1/2" threaded pvc pipe (not sure it needs to be threaded but that's what worked for me) longer than the tine shaft that was sticking out. I slip the pipe over the shaft against the bearing and tapped with a hammer. This drove the bearing in all the way. It needs to go in far enough to leave room for the seal and retainer. The plastic pvc allowed for this. Now put the right seal in. If the outer edge of the seal is only flush with the housing you did not tap the bearing in far enough. I made this mistake on my first try and tried to force the retainer in. Take it from me. It won't work. You will end up ordering another retainer to replace the one you mangled. Once in properly I slid the retainer over the shaft and then put a washer over that to tap against. The block of wood doesn't work on this side because the shaft is in the way. I used my pvc pipe again to tap against the washer and, wala, it worked like a charm. I hope this helps someone. All the other posts really helped me. Thanks!
