JD walk behind tiller need help....
Got a freebie, it's a JD walk behind tiller, Model R624D, Ser 030297 with a Tecumseh H60 (may be HH shround badly rusted) 7538(or 9)9J Ser 4289J. Will try to post pics if I can get this thing to work.
The tiller was found behind a trailer a tree had fallen on it and it had sat there for a couple of years, rain, snow, etc. Doesn't look too bad and I was looking for a winter project anyway.
I tried to find a Tec engine ID description, but all I found was for engines manufactured after 2004? The engine doesn't appear to be seized, pulling the starter rope, it started to turn and then stopped as several generations of mice nests are packed solidly in the cowling apparently jamming the flywheel.
As best I can determine this tiller was '70's or early '80's and is "built like a Deere," Sucker weighs a ton! Has a worm gear drive for the tines with a power reverse.
Anyone have one of these or familiar with them?
Thanks for your time,
