You could try putting the tiller to use, preferably where it will have to work hard to till the ground it unsuccessful you may need a torch and some good old fashion luck to loosen tines from shaft. Now consider this; if the bearings are worn so that the shaft is loose new seals will not hold up and you will risk doing further damage to the worm gear located on rear shaft and possibly other damage to your transmission from contaminated oil.

Purchased hahn tiller 5hp briggs stratton with broken tines and bearing and seal leaks. where can i get parts


Parts for the engine can be purchased from briggs and stratton
The bearings and seal can be purchased from Napa. Dimensions are required for the bearing inner and outer diameters. (Caliper time)
The tines.... I don't know. My experience on the tines is you either find an old Hahn Eclipse Tiller for parts or you find a good craftsman that can make one. I had to make a LH tine using the broken parts, some forge hardened bar stock and a welder. The tine manufacture took much longer than expected...!

The oil seal where the tiller attachment fastens to the tiller is leaking how do i remove the seal


IF THIS IS A WALK BEHIND TILLER OR FRONT TINE TILLER. THERE SHOULD BE PINS OR BOLTS HOLDING THE TINES ON THE DRIVE SHAFT REMOVE THESE AND PULL THE TINES OFF THE TILLER. THEY MAY GIVE YOU A HARD TIME GETTING THEM OFF SO DON'T GIVE UP. ONCE YOU GET THE TINES OFF YOU SHOULD SEE THE SEALS YOU CAN POP THE OLD ONES OUT WITH A SCREW DRIVER CLEAN OUT THE SOCKETS WHERE THE NEW SEALS WILL GO REPLACE THE NEW SEALS GENTLY WITH A SMALL HAMMER TAPPING THEM IN EVENLY AND TRY NOT TO BEND THE SEAL

I cannot get my oil seals of my rear tine tiller It is a Troy Bilt 5.5 hp and I got the left side off but the right side tine attachment will not budge any suggestions please


Have you tried soaking the shaft area with either PB Blaster or Deep Creep penetrating oil. Try this for a few days before trying to tackle getting the tine attachment off.

I need to replace the seals on my Troy-Built Pony tiller. 6 hp, ser.# 121811201149. I can not seem to remove the tine shafts. I have pulled the bolt thru the shaft but cannot budge it. Does anyone know...


I presume you opened the port and removed the grade 8 placement bolt? If you have then you need to polish the shafts with 400 then 800 sandpaper, clean then lube them before trying to slide thru the support bearings. If your tine shaft is bent? your screwed, or just remove the shaft seals with a screwdriver and replacing them without removing the shaft. REmember to put a thin coat od RTV arround the outer lip to help make a better seal

How to remove rear tines to replace seals ?


The tines sometimes get frozen to the shaft. You might try penatrating oil and use a heat gun or hair dryer to heat to loosen.
Also tap wiht a hammer around shaft.

Oil seal for rear tine shaft


The serial number is located on a flat spot just above the right wheel shaft where the gear housing and the top gear cover meet. It will be a six digit number stamped in the metal.
