Went out and looked at it this morning. Decided if I can't find some that I will cut the old ones off leaving enough material to use as a mounting flange. Drill some holes and bolt the new ones onto the side of the flange. The original tines are very wide and should make a good mounting bracket. Don't know why I didn't think of this earlier. Might even get fancy and put them in the lathe and round them off. 



The Roper tiller I bought last summer has similar tines in similar condition.  Please let us know what you come up with as a replacement.

I have a Bolens round top tiller that has the brass gear out.  I think it has the wide tines also.  They bolted to the center hub if I remember right.  I used tines off a Bolens walk behind to extend mine to cover the wheel tracks. If your interested I can get pic's and measurements.  I have extra hubs with tines you can have.  I will probably not find another brass gear for the Bolens so just as well part it out.
