Had to do some troubleshooting on the ole Briggs and Stratton tiller to do some tilling and gardening. Here is a basic of my troubleshooting process and how I fixed the problem. I had to do a victory stroll and dance cause I was so pumped that it worked,started the first time, and runs like a champ.
First start of the year for the 5HP Briggs and Stratton MTD Garden Tiller. Its MTD Model # 212-390-000. Had this for a quite a while an overkill for this little garden but it has been used to completely redo the yard, flower beds and use as an aerator during the fall grass seeding. Does a really nice job, got tomatoes to plant, cucumbers and squash will come next.
