Is this a John Deere? Is it a PTO tiller, walk-behind tiller, tractor tiller, or tractor-mounted tiller?

Thanks.

SOURCE: Oil gushes out of air filter hole.

Oil normally comes out of the air filter area a little bit, but over time, once the oil rings start to wear, more and more oil comes out. So you can either have new oil rings replaced, or you can put in a crank ventillation valve in there and it often helps slow down the oil from entering

SOURCE: Ryobi Tiller, model RY60511A, will not start. Air

mine was a total pain. I yanked on the rope so many times, it flew out of the keeper,and when I replaced it I ran it UNDER the fuel tank cutting a slot in tank. I also blew out the primer bulb. AFTER the replacement tank I arrived, I discovered rolling the machine forward helped the flow to carb and did not require priming. Now I need to fix throttle cable. But all in all, a tough little machine.

SOURCE: craftsman tiller engine slows way down and dies when tines engaged then leaks gas through air filter, what do I need to fix?

Hi gelkins056

Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Write down on a piece of paper and or take a picture of how the linkage attaches to your carburetor for later reference when you go to reinstall your carburetor.
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of sharp instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using a very small shot of starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that, and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check you fuel line/s condition...after a while they will degrade and need replacement.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing or take a picture of how the lines are connected to the carburetor.
Also a good time to take a picture for later reference for reassembly.
If the mower is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem.

Troy-bilt cultivator 26cc gas/oil separate engine spewing oil out through filter when running...there is a hose from the oil reservoir straight into the back of the filter...as the engine revs it literally...


Hi, Check the oil reservoir breather that it's not plugged up. The oil should be returning back to the reservoir not going to the filter. That tells me that there is air being pumped into the engine (oil).
The piston rings could be broken or the carberator needs to be readjusted.

Open the air screw abit more on carb. Then see what happens. Good luck.

I inherited an MTD front tine 5hp rotto-tilleran woner. I have no idea about model number. I have not yet found an owner's manual, operation guide, etc. There is no model or serial number anywhere. ...


What to remember when working on these gas engines you have to have fuel spark and air usually on these small engines there is a screen in the bottom of the gas tank that gets clogged up check out the spark plug and take the air filter off and wash it in warm water with dawn dish detergent let squeeze all the water out of the filter and let it dry out a day or so hope this helps Merry Christmas

Hard to start and oil soaked air filter, smokes and loses power


It sounds like it got tilted on its side. The air filter needs to be cleaned or replaced and the carburetor needs to be removed and cleaned.

When the tiller gets tipped over toward the air filter, oil will run out into the filter and the carburetor.

If the filter is foam you can clean it with gasoline, if its paper just buy a new one.

The carburetor is between the air filter box and the engine, it should come off with a few bolts, just remember where the springs hook up.

Open it up, take it apart and spray everything with carburetor cleaner from your local auto parts store. When you put it all together it will run like new!
