Troy Bilt Horse Tiller Help/Questions

Posted by donsim (My Page) on

I own a Troy Bilt Horse Tiller that I purchsed new in 1970's. Last year the 6 HP Motor gave up its life after many yrs of service. It did not owe me 10 cents,, it was a great piece of Equipment. My issue now is to find a new Motor to power it with, some new operator stickers as I plan to re-paint it in the Re-Build process.

The Serial Number on the Transmission is 772 650 but my memory is tested. lol I believe it is a 1977 or so vintage and that it was called Horse. But then it is tough to know if it was a Horse, HorseII or such. Any help as to the 772 650 and then ideas for a good replacement motor.

I'd look for a Briggs and Stratton engine dealer and see what they have that will do the job. Most likely, they made the original for Troy-Built.

That's good advice. There are plenty of engines available at places like Harbor Freight and Northern Tool if you can't find it locally. What you need to know is the horsepower, type (vertical vs. horizontal), shaft size, the mounting hole configuration, stuff like that.
