Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
The HH60 is the engine model number and 105113H is the specification number. (Good thing for the purpose of this post.) It is a 6 Hp Tecumseh.

The service manual for your engine is here:
http://www.mymowerparts.com/pdf/Tecumseh_Service_and_Repair_Manuals/TECUMSEH_SERVICE%20_REPAIR_MANUAL_3HP_TO_11HP_4-CYCLE_L-HEAD_FLAT_HEAD_ENGINES_692509.pdf

See page 71 for troubleshooting / testing the ignition system

There is a kill wire that is attacted to a terminal of the throttle control plate that can NOT be grounded or it woill ground the ignition. That same lead can NOT have any grounds all the way to the ignition coil. (This is called a parasitic load) Most of the time when a new condensor is installed the problem is where the wires attach to the condensor. (Chassis ground)

Coil to Flywheel air gap is 0.0125 measured at the magnets to the coil.

The wire that connects to the stop start switch will also ground the ignition.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

You may have a bad coil,check the flywheel key as well.Tim

    the flywheel has the magnetic attached to it, the flywheel key if sheared/nicked will not allow the flywheel to spin, thus not energizing the coil which results in your problem no spark. Hope this helps Tim

Installed new points and condenser on a Troy HH60 with a Tecumseh Motor. Ohmmeter shows dead short across points when points are broken and apart...No spark. I must have wired something back wrongly or??...


Check your wire connections and make sure nothing is touching the metal case. sometimes the double crimped connector for coil wire has a wire strand hanging out. Check without wires on for short then attach one at a time checking each time for short. could be defective condenser . Thanks for using fixya.

The tiller was working fine for about an hour. I let it rest for 15 min, then briefly turned it on its right side work on left wheel. It started right up, but then stalled about a minute later and won't...


Laying your tiller of its right side can fill engine breather with oil and possibly entering your carburator causing engine to smoke and then quite. If this is so change or clean your spark plug. It this is not the case your crankshaft seal may be bad allowing oil to enter your ignition point and condenser cavity causing points to get wet.

Always start by checking the spark plug. If you are getting spark and still not starting, it's probably a carburator problem.

I need a owner's manual for a early 80's Troy-bilt Horse tiller It hasn't been used for a couple of years and we can't get it started. Want to make sure I have the correct spark plug and the correct fuel...


Ebay has manuals on CD for $6.99 with free shipping. If the spark plug is firing when you crank the engine you probably have a gummed up carburater and it will have to be cleaned. They will do this when they set for a while. Not sure if that will have points and condenser or not but if it does and will not fire they will have to be cleaned or possible replaced also.

Not getting spark


I would check that I didn't have a key sheared off in the flywheel, that the start/stop switch isn't faulty, and that there is no missing or weak flywheel magnet. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I have 1980's model troy built pony tiller that won't fire


Great machine, I had one. The points need replacement. Look for a gadget that replaces the points. I found mine in PepBoys. Search the Internet, the cost was about $5.00.

Tiller won't start.


I recently had the same issue with a tiller that hadn't been started in over 8 years. Turns out that old gas had left a varnish coating in the carburator keeping the gas from feeding. Rebuilt the carburator with new float, needle valves and bowl, new Welsh plug. Fresh gas and two pulls later it went to churning. Took a short time to adjust the two needle valves for idle and full throttle and we went a-tilling.
