In order to view and purchase any of the engine components including the carburetor, the engine model number needs to be identified and inputted into SearsPartsDirect.com. In the case of tiller model 917.297021, I see this unit has a Briggs & Stratton engine with model of 126302-3776-B1.

A:

The severity of this problem can go either way. Try this: Use some light grade oil (like Mystery Marvel Oil) to lubricate where the shifter goes into the tiller transmission. Right where the shifter comes out of the transmission is where you want to put the oil. Be very liberal with it and allow it to "soak" in for about 30 minutes and then tap gently on the shifter (above where you oiled) with a hammer.

If this does nothing to change the situation then the transmission will most likely need to be opened up and serviced. This is not something I recommend for people that are not mechanically inclined or for those that are not used to making these types of repairs.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

What position on depth stake do you use on the rear tine tiller when using the furrow attachment?

A:

Yes, the leveling shield will need to be removed when using the furrow. The depth stake height is something you'll need to adjust based on how deep you want your furrows (trenches) to be. Usually having the stake set pretty high is how most I've seen are set up.
