Welcome to GTT. Thanks for your service. You will notice that many of us also served. As a new home owner you should learn to do your own minor repairs. This is a good machine to start to learn to fix small engines and machines. You should go to the manuals section and download the Briggs and Stratton Repair Instructions http://gardentractor...r-instructions/  , its free. Study the manual to learn how to do repairs on your engine. Page three lists the tuneup proceedure that you should do before you use it. Always check the oil on an old engine before you start it. If you want to learn on something of less valve, pick up a frebie mower to practice on. Ask questions when you have them. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to the forum! Thanks for your service. If your willing to try, there are plenty of folks willing to help out with questions. There's nothing better than the feeling of fixing it yourself.

Well, I have been thinking about it a little and I don't have a lot of time to put into getting this up and running. I think I'm just going to sell it. The guy that I got it from tinkered with it a bit and he has quite a few years on me working with farm eqipment. He said he got it running but it just wouldn't run right. Now it doesn't run at all. I could leave it in my garage and maybe get to it some day but I just don't think I would get into it. It would probably just sit there for ever.

Sometimes it's something simple that gets overlooked or unattended. Finding that issue and solving it kinda bonds ya with the machine, IMO. I'm figurin the 'tinkerer' did not have the awesome collective resources of GTtalk at his fingertips. When we don't know about a thing, there are possibilities to learn.    :anyone:

 

And Mac, Thank you for your service.

Does anyone know how much I should ask for this. I don't want to put it on eBay it's just a pain. I got a newer tiller that runs for my garden and I could keep this thing around but I think it would have a better home somewhere else. Thank you all for your help.

I jus picked-up an older Bolesn Super Mustang. It is complete with a 3 hp Briggs and Stratton engine, BUT, at this point, I do not believe that ti is the original engine..

 

The engine is a Briggs and Stratton model #  080232-9439-01  It's an engine with points, and a Pulsa-Jet tank top carburator.

 

I spent time cleanng it up, refrehshing the points, and cleaning out the gas tank.

 

This evening, it fired up.

 

Most pronably my tiller is a 2066-01

 

Now, I need a replacement belt.  I'm leaning towards buying a 4L330 (1/2" x 33") belt...

 

Does that sound right to those of you who have more experience with this?

Do you have any pictures of the tiller?

Hey all.

I have the same tiller, only red.

Is there a manual/parts list out there I can get my hands on?

Thanks all.

Ken

Do you have a model number or a pic of the tiller?

I may have a manual for it
