First off want to say hi from PA. Next i was lucky and got a Roto Hoe 990-4 tiller at auction for 200$. Its in great shape has the 8hp Tech motor. THe problem is it is missing two belts and i have no idea what size they are. The first belt is the one going from teh motor to drive and second is the secondary belt that runs the tines. I am looking for size on the belts and how the secondary is mounted. Thanks for any help

Welcome to GTTalk !  Can't help you with your belt size #s . I have a Roto-Hoe Chipper/Shredder   that needed one of the belts and I couldn't find any info for it , but I think your going to have it a little easier , it seemed like more tiller info was out there . I ended up taking an old belt I had laying around ( I don't throw anything away lol )  that was longer but the correct width , I wrapped it around the pulleys and cut it to length , measured it for size and that worked for me . Good Luck

Looks like previous owner cut possibly an exhaust off as I just turned the one that was on there with a big pipe wrench

If the bowl is still sealing, I'd leave it alone.  The nick in the carb is nothing to worry about.  If it leaks, it'll be because of the bowl nick, or just an old seal ring.  It really just seals at the top & bottom of the rubber ring.

Ok thanks. Once I get the new exhaust on it run it and see if she leaks

I have a Roto-Hoe 990-6. Any info on it is VERY hard to find. I have a parts manual somewhere, I'll have to look for it.

I'd like yo see pictures of the Snow Thrower attachment for it.

Any info on Roto-Hoe is HARD to find. They made at least 2 different tillers. Yours has a 4 speed transmission, mine has a. 6 speed.
The PO converted mine to electric start. There is a manual on-line for it, but that's about all. They also made at least 2 different chippers, a 5hp model and a 8hp model. I have most of a 5hp model, I have yet to find a manual for it.

I'll try to upload the manual this weekend.

I did upload the Manual it here.

http://gardentractor...and-power-unit/

I thought mine was a 990-6 it's a 990-5. The only difference is the number of speeds in the transmission.

As far as I know these are the only manuals available.
