Question and Answers

Q:

I have a 14 inch, rear tine tiller, 900 series. I filled oil in the incorrect fill tube at left front top of engine. Oil blew thru the head valve & out the air filter. How do I clean this?

A:

Be sure you have the correct amount of oil inside the engine. Remove the spark plug and pull the starter rope 8-10 times to blow any remaining oil out of the cylinder.

Start the engine and let it run 10-15 minutes. It might smoke from the exhaust for a while and might smoke some more when the heat from the engine burns the oil off the outside of the engine.

After running the engine, remove the spark plug and clean it with carb cleaner or something similar.

The engine will not be damaged and should run fine and give you good service.
