Troy Bilt Tiller HH60's version
where to start? I have a HH60 105115H Ser#21460 bought a few day's back. guy who owned it from new say's he bought it sometime in the 1980's hardly used it, had it tuned in 1990 and would start it up every year for a few moments. It has alway's been stored inside - thank you for small favors!!
he had recently put a carb rebuild kit in, cause the carb was leaking, and had not put it back on correctly. so we could not get it to stay running and gas was leaking out like crazy. owner finally located a proper screw to hold other side of carb onto the engine, a Tecumseh. So, could get it to run and stay running long enough to run it up onto our truck. oh gas tank leaks too. so got it home, started up-backfired and died. started again, back it off the truck died again, out of gas CAUSE THE TANK LEAKS!. put more gas in it started it up moved it under the shed lean-too. and noticed that not only is it still leaking gas, but now oil is coming out the crank case vent hole, like an artery has been cut? what the heck? that was not happening when we loaded it up? i finally figured out that the vent tube was missing? attached a rubber tube to the brass flange and repaired all the gas leaks, fired it up runs good, but oil is still pumping out this makeshift vent tube. i have ordered through our local tractor store the parts.
however anyone have a thought as to why the oil continues to come out the tube? is it supposed to connect up to something else? the engine parts diagram does not indicate that? Help!!!
