    well i had it somewhat finished other then paint..and i took it out and did a nice long dig in super hard turf dirt (governerless) and it kinda sucked in the intake gasket against the motor and it leaned out backfired bad and quit and hasn’t ran right since im kinda upset. it wont idle will barely stay running period …oops i guess :/ need rings?? maybe sleeve or replate? lap-job wouldn’t hurt…

    The seals can fail on the gear box, but the numbers can be taken from the seals or the bearings to a Bearing supply house and new ones can be brought. If the starter rope will not rewind correctly, try taking to cover off and check the top post of the fly wheel, see if it turns freely in the wind direction, it it does not, shoot a spray of cleaner and the small hole in the center of the top post..and oil. If no spark, check the coil under the starting rope cover, check the gap is clear

    Hahn tillers were the best of the best.. They dig with the less vibration and bumping then any front tine tiller. I finally found one this past weekend, someone had fixed it up and just have a few simple things to repair. Years ago now, contractors here use to use them to dig for Footers. and then shovel the dirt. I would rather have one of these in the 3hp then the new back tine tillers as they are so handy and easy to operate and can get in tight places.
