Default Picked up a troybilt tiller!

Might epoxy it(carb) to verify it runs first, seems to be in good shape.

Nice. if you got for $100, you stole it. I seldom see them less than $500 around here. in any condition. I've got a smaller Pony model and really like it for garden work but its not as good as the bigger models at breaking new ground.

Well I checked the oils and they looked good. I took the carb off to inspect but haven't got that far yet. I decided to see if it would fire. I have had good luck by soaking a rag in gas and letting the fumes power it.

Never had a backfire set the rag on fire. It scared the dog more than it did me(you'd be surprised how many times I've set myself on fire).

Anyhoo I may pull a carb off another motor, it looks pretty generic.

If it does not want to run right and continue to backfire, possible the flywheel key may be partially sheared.

Well I took a gamble on a chingchong carb for $20 and she runs like a champ! It was touted as a direct replacement for my carb, it is not. I will need to make some kind of spacer so the choke can be used, but I now have an expensive tiller for cheap. Now I need to replace the muffler and tires. I should be all set for about $200 total.

Found some new tires on marketplace for $20 each! No they aren't V tread, but I d9nt care.

Now I just need to get the muffler off. I tried a little today and it said " go fuck yourself ". I'll tinker more with it this weekend.
