This weekend I finally was able to put together the horse trading deal that I've been working on. The deal was One running Y91 tractor engine for a pile of stuff. I was going to do this all in one post, but decided 2 of the units deserved their own space.

This post is to mention (and in one case,with pictures) the rest of the stuff.

As well as this Troy Built Tiller, He tossed in a running weed eater and a small Mantis tiller. This Troy Built Tiller has a bad rod and one broken head bolt. The parts that broke off the rod are still on the bent up cap. There doesn't seem to be any damage to the piston or block, just the rod. I have the info written down and will start the search.

Good luck on the reconditioning, replacement engines drilled to fit those chassis is about 400 bucks!

if the block is undamaged you can fix it, is the head bolt broke flush with the deck or is there some sticking out, that's a nice vintage one,

There's about half a thread sticking up. Sprayed, tapped, and will try it in a week.

Alan, I know you have already drilled and tapped the bolt. I have very good luck with welding a nut onto the broken stud. I tap on the top of the nut as it's cooling down, lightly. Between the heat and the tapping, they usually come right out. It's a faster and easier way for me anyway.

Actually, I meant that I lightly hit it several times.:D

I may try the nut trick, but right now, there's no hurry, Thanks for the tip.

If the motor salvation get hopeless, a lot of people are refurbing these with the Honda clones sold very reasonably at Harbor Freight and Northern tool. I'm looking for a Horse for just that conversion.
I'm looking to work it,and don't care about originality.

MTD used one on the new Troy Bilt Super Bronco I bought this spring and I think it's the best small engine I have ever owned. sips fuel ,is quiet, and has not used a drop of oil.
