Reminder for Honda FG100 tiller owners
As spring approaches, you should service the transmission of your FG100 - this is something that is easily overlooked, but if you don't you'll almost certainly join the ranks of "Failed Transmission in Honda Tiller Owners."
It's a half-hour job, and step-by-step instructions are in your owners manual. Here's a heads-up: My manual says to loosen the dust cap cover using a 3/32" Allen wrench; in fact, my tiller required a 5/64" wrench - also, that Allen screw is recessed about an inch so that you might think that it is missing.
You put grease in by pressing your grease gun nozzle TIGHTLY against the fill hole, so expect to pump quite a bit of grease onto the outside of the transmission.
This maintenance action is MANDATORY to avoid transmission failure.
