I do believe this carburetor will work for your tiller. I show that their number for the carb changed, so that tells me that the actual carburetor most likely changed. From what I can tell, the K82 is basically just a newer version of the K54A and it should work in its place.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Thank you for your question on the throttle spring for the Mantis tiller.

I am sorry but this part is not normally replaced without the handle that it is attached too.

I have not seen the inside where the return to idle spring is located.

If you could post a couple of pictures of the internal parts I may be able help you with the return spring for the throttle.

If it has what is referred to as a butterfly spring, the center of the spring will be around the center pin of the trigger and then either end will have to be loaded onto a pin to push the cable back down the sheath for returning the engine to idle.

A:

The fuel tank should not pressurize. Look on the parts diagram on the "fuel tank" page and check item 8. This check valve should let pressure bleed out of the fuel tank.

When you push the primer, it should force fuel through the carburetor and back into the fuel tank. Be sure the fuel hoses are connected correctly.

If you have more questions, reply on this thread and I will be glad to help.

thank you for your response. I changed the check valve and now it wants to run but I can't get it to prime The lines are hooked up right and i can feel it has pressure on the return line but I can't tell if the supply line is sucking the gas in I also changed the fuel filter. when i tried to start it after changing the check valve it tried to start a few times then stopped also the primer bulb is not filling up I tried pushing the primer bulb down while blocking the return line to make sure the bulb was not leaking and it seemed fine

The primer must be drawing gas if you feel pressure on the return line. The primer doesn't force gas into the cylinder. It fills the carburetor with fresh gas for starting. I would remove the carburetor and take it apart again. Spray carburetor cleaner through all the fuel passages and blow them out with compressed air. I think the carburetor is restricted somewhere. Be sure you have installed the diaphragm in the carburetor properly. I know it is frustrating when you do all this work and the engine doesn't start. I have been there. Most times when this has happened to me, I found that I had done something wrong. Good luck

Thanks Again Jimmy! I took apart the carburetor again and everything looks right according to the parts blow up on Mantis, and sears diagrams. I was wondering if I somehow damaged the diaphragm with all the times I have taken it apart and put it back together again? also the rebuild kit came with two diaphragm one has 2 small holes that match the gasket and one has only one hole that matches the gasket and the other one is not there. also I put the carburetor body into my carb cleaner ( the gallon can one) and rinsed it off. while it was soaking I inspected the primer bulb plate and it seemed to be working by pulling in from the side small holes and blowing out the return line plus the primer bulb didn't seem like it was bad this is driving me crazy I know it is something small I am overlooking :-(
