Q:

Craftsman tiller move without drive bar engaged Craftsman Tiller

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more then happy to assist you. Looking at the information you have told me, looked like the clutch cable needs to be replaced. With these cables after so many years of use and sitting and tension on them they stretch. If the cable is the right size, it may not put the proper tension on the clutch for the transmission. Witch would cause it to roll a little bit. So change out that cable and that should fix your issue.

Hope this information has help you, any further questions or concerns please feel free to comment back, thanks.

Q:

I have a Sears rear-tine tiller, model 917.299852, that the tire has come off the rim. How can I get the rim off or the tire back on?

A:

The best thing I have seen for squeezing the tire to make the tire seal on the rim is a strap for tying down product in a truck.

These straps have a ratchet to draw them tight and will squeeze the tire in the center while air is added. Remove the valve stem from the tire while airing it up and set the air pressure on the compressor to 50-60 lbs.

The wheels rust to the axles and are difficult to remove. Remove the pin and hair clip on the side you want to remove. Spray Liquid Wrench or some other rust buster liberally on the wheel hub and the axle.

Put the transmission into forward till position. Prop up the side of the tiller you are working on. Secure a large (24-36") pipe wrench onto the hub of the wheel you want to remove and turn it. You might have to jump up and down on the wrench or use a cheater bar. Once you break the wheel loose, it will turn counter clock wise and back off the axle.

To remove the other wheel, you will need to put the wheel you removed back on. Put a pipe wrench on the hub of the wheel you removed and let it run into the ground. Prop up the other side and do the same thing you did on the first wheel. The pipe wrench will keep the wheel from turning through the transmission.
