troy bilt tiller

hi, i have an old troy bilt tiller i want to sell in the paper but i dont know the engine size or what model to list in my ad. The numbers on the engine are hh60 105122l serial number 0136d and the serial number on the machine is 379244. The engine is a tecumseh and all it says is industrial on it. I would like to know if anyone knows what year it is, the size of the motor and/or any other information about it would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

i was going to start at 500 because i have seen ones on ebay go for between 350 and 850 (depending on condition). I dont know how old it is but i am guessing the 80s. This one is in very good shape and i just rebuilt the carb and tuned it up. the rims were a little rusty so i sanded them down and repainted them The guy i got it from had it sitting in his garage for 8 years (which i know to be true) and he said the person he got it from hardly ever used it. If you are interested I noticed you are from indiana and i am actually coming to indianapolis sunday and ill be there until tuesday night.

It's a 6hp, and the engine year is either 1970, 1980 or 1990 ( or a year ending in 0...the decade is not designated in the engine serial # ). Hope that helps!

Troy Bilt Engine

Hi,

I need a carburtetor kit for a 1974 Tecumseh Lauson cast iron 6 HP electric-start engine for my Troy Bilt tiller. The ID plate is gone from the engine and I can't identify it to get the right kit (or other parts I need for it.) I have a gazillion numbers associated with the tiller but I'm not sure how to use them. One is H60E. (I thought this might be horizontal and electric.) Another is on the side of the transmission: 96392. Two more just in the papers I have are HH60-105091E and Serial number 4094R. You would think that with this much ID I could find the code to the right parts.

Any help you can give me? Thanks so much, CC

If cheese is correct about his ID of the OP, and I imagine he is, I would try the HH60 for Tecumseh model number.

I agree... the numbers you showed "HH60-105091E and Serial number 4094R" should be all you need. Most any small engine shop should have a kit for your carb. HH60 is the engine model, 105091E is the spec number, and 4094R is serial number. It was built in a year ending in 4 (likely 1974 or 84).

Very helpful, thanks

This was most helpful. I've now bought a kit, a manual, a fuel filter, an air filter, and a muffler from Jack's small engines on the web. I couldn't find parts for the charging system like the diodes and plastic cover which powdered away when I touched it. Also, the muffler bolt is broken off and I'm not sure I should try to drill it out and retap it.

Again, many thanks, -CC

Usually a muffler bolt breaks because it is rusted in. Drilling & tapping can be difficult. What I have done in the pats when the bolts were impossible to remove was to use a "McGiver" type of fix. Find out what size pipe thread the muffler hole is and how far out you need to come out and buy a length of threaded pipe that long and thread it into the muffler hole.Most of the time you will need a 45* adaptor to go on the end of the pipe and the I use a muffler like this:

If you don't have enough muffler bolt sticking out to grab with a pair of vise grips, you may be able to weld another bolt to it. I grind a bolt to a wedge point, then weld the end of it to the broken off bolt. It doesn't stick to the aluminum, and heats the broken bolt enough that it usually will come out when you turn the welded-on bolt. I don't know how practical this is for you though. Drilling can be done, but it is kind of difficult. You'll need to make sure you hit the center of the bolt and keep the bit straight. A left twist drill bit may help get it out so that you don't have to re-tap the hole.
