Troy bilt tiller questions

mla2ofusFebruary 23, 2010

I have a PTO Horse. What is the allowable end play on the tiller drive shaft in the tiller transmission? Can I install the ring gear on the tine shaft so the thrust is on the opposite side of the teeth? They show some wear but nothing to be alarmed about. I just thought if this is possible, I'd get more miles(acres?) out of it.

Thanks,

Mike

Someone on the more specific Horse forums may be of more help. Myself I've seen them with a fair amount of play. If the wear seems even, I personally would keep it as is as the two gears are used to playing together for this long.

Thanks, Tomplum. I took your advice about the ring gear. I took a close look at the worm and it showed a little wear on it also. It would probably wear the ring gear teeth down to match it anyway. I did find some good seal drivers on the cheap. a piece of 1 1/2" PVC works good for the tine shaft seals and a piece of 1 1/4" PVC works good for the front tine drive seal.
Like I do a lot at my age, I forgot to order the gaskets so will have to wait for them 'til I can stir up some dirt.
