Troy-Bilt Tller Identification
First time here. Looks like a great website. I bought an old Troy-Bilt tiller recently. I was wondering if anyone can help with model identification. MTD is no help. They said the older ones didn't have model numbers per se. I think it is a Horse. I do have a serial number. It had a Tucumseh engine but I couldn't find any specs on it. It blew up and now I'm looking at putting a new engine on it. I put a 5 hp I/C I had sitting around and it seemed to pull it OK. I have to use that engine elsewhere so I'm leaning towards a 6.5 hp I/C a local dealer has for $229. They also have a Contractor Tools 6.5 hp on sale for $169 but I don't know anything about them.
Can anybody help on how to identify the model or year?
