SOURCE: Mantis 2-stroke tiller won't start

This could be one of several problems...
• Last year's fuel. Get some fresh gas.
• Every 2-stroke needs a new spark plug each year... you know what that means.
• Clogged carb jets due to storing the tiller over the winter with fuel in the system. Never, ever do that. Now you'll need to pull the carb apart and clean it. Most of the orifices are so tiny you can't see them. Good luck.
• Engine is so old the crankshaft seals have hardened with age. This is one reason no 2-stroke lasts longer than about 8 years. If the seals are shot, then it will cost more to fix than a new one costs. Time to toss it.

SOURCE: both belts shredded. Atlas garden tiller model 12 -5100

I bought a repair manual from Clymer and found the belt sizes for my Atlas 12.5022 tiller. The manual lists a 1/2 inch by by 36 inch forward belt and 1/2 inch by 32 inch reverse belt for the model 12-5100. Good luck. Don't bother to buy the Clyme manual. It isn't very complete.

No spark on Weed Eater FB25 25cc Gas Blower

Test the kill switch first, disconnect the kill switch and see if you have spark. Then the kill switch is not working or is grounding out. If not, the problem could be the ignition module.

Recoil starting mechanism will not recoil starting rope. How do I fix?

You could fix it ... I suggest you replace the recoil mechanism. Find a replacement at your Yard and Garden store that sells your brand of engine.

How do you start a 2 stroke Mantis? I lost the book. Will

first, push the primer bulb a few times to get fuel circulated and air out of the carb. Turn on the switch, put the choke on full. Pull the rope until you hear it fire. Then put it on half choke. Pull the rope; it should fire within a few pulls, and should run. Take the choke the rest of the way off once it's running well. This is a standard starting procedure that works well for every kind of 2-stroke engine used in the garden.

On my tecumseh tiller the rope broke and the setup has rivets instead of screws is there another way to get it off without removing the rivets?

I'm guessing you have a 3.5 or 4HP 4 stroke with the recoil built into the top of the housing? If so, just remove the entire blower housing. It's only 4 bolts. You can then disassemble the recoil assembly to replace the rope.
