Moto Motel 501 Tiller Transmission Break Down

jwstric2_2008July 6, 2010

Manufacturer Moto

Model 501

Obtained this antique for free about 1 week ago. Couple hours working to get engine back to working order. Transmission is seized. Having trouble taking tranny apart. Is there a trick to get the shaft out?

Can send pictures if this would be helpful.

Moto Motel or Motomower? The latter was made by Roper years ago and was a very decent tiller. You likely need to thoroughly clean the tine shaft and dress off the burrs so the bearings can slide easily.

Moto mower. I've never had one before but from working on it the design is fairly simplisitic and the parts were well made. Not finding a lot of plastic here ..
