Overfilling Oil on Tiller Engine
Last year I replaced the engine on my Troy-Bilt horse tiller. I had trouble with the engine stopping when tilling on uneven ground. The low oil sensor was turning off the engine. I got around the problem by overfilling the oil reservoir. At the time could not find anyone to tell me what potential damage this might do (warning on oil dip stick said not to overfill). After a year of use, the engine suddenly stopped and I could not pull the start rope. It is like the engine is ceased up, but there is plenty of oil.
Any thoughts on what problem overfilling the oil reservoir might have caused?
