I have a old tiller i bought a while back and this year i broke the carburetor off of it.To replace the carb i need to know what engine is on it.It says garden way on the base of the handle bars and has a serial number on the chasis above the right wheel.i was told it was a troy built but an old one like late 70's early 80's...theres no numbers stamped any where on the motor.i can give more pics if needed.Our local shops haven't been any help, they keep telling me they need to know what engine is on it.Any help would be great.

RE: help identifying tiller

Your tiller is in fact a Troy-Bilt, probably late 1970's vintage. Engine is a Tecumseh HH60. Although Tecumseh has gone out of business, a lot of parts are still available through the trade and on Ebay.

RE: help identifying tiller

thank you, this has been an adventure to find out what you just told me.It's a great tiller don't think they make them like this anymore.I was scared i wouldn't be able to fix it...Can you tell me by chance where i can get a manual for this beast?

RE: help identifying tiller

Because your tiller is PTO model and electric start it would been in 1980's you need to join yahoo troybilt tiller group Bill Roger owner of group has dealer ship and can supply all info you need site has photo and files on tiller. I have 5 old troybilt tillers. Your serial number tell more about tiller number on transmission case above right tire (not cover).

You will easily find a carb for this. That's why I have the bumper on mine.

RE: help identifying tiller

Definitely TroyBuilt. I have a 5hp horse, pull start ~ 1982?

The bumper probably saves the carb from some mishaps, also required to install the 3' dozer/snow blade.
