troubleshooting troy-bilt tiller issue
I bought a used troy-bilt tiller with an 8hp kohler engine. Tiller is in excellent condition. Strange there is a Y-Cable in a black shroud. On top of the Belt Adjustment Bolt there rests another bolt that has wires attached. This Bolt separates from the Lower Bolt when you engage the Wheels.
When I engage the Drive which lifts the Top Bolt off of the lower adjustment bolt the engine quits or if I let them contact each other the engine will continue to run.
If I put tiller in Reverse which does not separate the two bolts it works.
Grounding issue of some sort is my guess but I have no clue how to resolve it as I never got any manuals with the Tiller. Any idea what I need to do to resolve this odd behavior?
