Re: gilson roto tiller model 51082
Something in the wheels drive is jammed preventing them from turning. That is why the turning belt starts to smoke when it is turning but cannot unstick the wheels. Need to unstick them for unit to work.

Two possibilities. Something has jammed the tines. Pull the spark plug wire off and tuck it away someplace so as not to touch the plug. Tip the tiller up and examine the tines for obstacle such as a rock. If there is nothing jammed try to turn the tines by hand. If the they turn freely you most likely broke a shear pin that secures the tines to the axle.Clean the axle and tines and examine very closely for the pin. If sheared ( broken) you will need to drive the broken piece out and replace the pin. There may also be a problem in the transmission case. You would need to remove the tines and case to open it
Even though you drained the fuel it sounds like the carb needs to be cleaned or else the diaphragm in the carb may have a hole in it. Can you pour fuel in the carb and have it run so it is the carb. Hope this helps. In addition, did you gap the new plug sometimes they get closed up in shipping.
It appears that the gear case on your model is not capable of being serviced. The cost is over 300 dollars. There is a shear pin or similar connection in the case where the shaft connects to the pulleys. It has broken off and the shaft has no torque now.
