So yesterday me and a good friend were helping clean up a friends property, this included a scrap metal run. We got the trailer loaded and headed off. I made a new personal best 7000 pounds of scrap and we cant tell we removed anything. So after we get our load tickets and are heding to the office a couple of guy pass us with a old tiller in the bed of their truck. I turn around and inquire. Turns out they cant scrap it because they left the tires on. So I ask how much he said 50 so I countered with 40 and you load it on the trailer.

So now I have it need to find a gas cap and oil plug now. But it turns over. Come to find out this thing has direct ties to the troy built horse. This was made around 46 or 47. And has a two stroke engine. That is all I know. Any other info on the engine would be great. Or the whole thing. Pic time.

Check out my website: Zuck's ROTOTILLERS
The Graham-Paige/Frazer tiller is not directly related to Troy-Bilt. The company that loaned the manufacturing rights to G-P/Frazer to build the B1-6 & 7 was ROTOTILLER, INC., which was directly related to Troy-Bilt. Check out THE ROTOTILLER® STORY

Thanks for the info, my biggest fear with this machine was the people I got it from look like they would not know it take gas and oil mix.

What is the best mix to use for this? I only run sthil synthetic mix but I was thinking this oldbird may have a different mix ratio.

Waswondering if it had spark and I noticed the magneto was almost off so I finished removing it. Cleaned it out, cleaned and adjusted the points. Hooked up a plug wire and set up a spark test. Turned it by hand and what do you know a beautiful hot spark.

Maybe a bit more work and it may run again.

I run a Castrol 2 stroke oil labeled Multi Mix 3 at 16:1. Years ago after an overhaul and breakin I used Golden Spectro at 40:1 for a period of time.

Maybe you could post a picture of the control diagram. I went to move it off the trailer and had a very hard time keeping it in neutral. but after five or six attempts at putting it in neutral we got it and towed it to it temporary home. gonna see if it will run tonight!?!?!

As you probably have figured out, the left most lever is high/low/neutral. There should be a short piece of steel that will fit into the groove of the shift lever to hold it in neutral. If that does not keep it in neutral there may be too much slop in the shift lever or the spring that is inside the round pipe in the linkage to the actual lever at the bottom rear of the transmission. I can send you the linkage adjustment procedure if needed.

The adjustment procedure would be great. You have a great site with excellent resources thanks for your efforts in keeping these great machines going

This site will not let me upload the file. Email me and I will send it to you.

Thanks for the comments on the website. I have had the site up for almost 10 years and have had my first B1-6 since 1977.

I re-scanned the document as a jpg file then was able to upload it.

I have started a Technical Information page on my website and there is a better copy there along with some other information. I will be adding more as time permits.
