we just got this ariens tiller from my grandfathers shed...he died 11 years ago. the engine is a briggs and stratton 135202-0615-a1. i can't read the model/serial number on the body.
i cleaned the carb and it fires up...i still need to get parts for the carb. but since it fired up after not being run in 12/13 years i would like to change the pulleys and get a new belt. also there are pulleys that don't have a belt...anyone know why? so if anyone knows the model please let me know so i can get a manual and parts list for it... thank you...pictures below....

The two-groove main pulley and the second idler are for reverse. It runs of the camshaft output shaft. You don't have this because someone replaced the engine. I believe original engine was 80000 series 3hp. Your tiller is from early 1970's; replacement engine was from late 1980's to mid 1990's. You should be able to get model number from label on frame next to drag stake. Probably 902002, but could be one of dozens.

the label is there but no numbers are visible. but i'll look into the 902002 series.

I have a similar tiller my is Mod # 902985, It is missing the engine, but was able to fine out which one came on it from Ariens, they were very helpful. My question is with out the engine I don't know how the two belts go, I am restoring it and need the belt diagram or a picture.
Thanks Lenny.
