I had a fairly new looking troybilt tiller gave to me today, engine is blown up AKA huge hole in block! I am trying to ID what i have to look for a replacement. the numbers are as follows and in the same orientation.


H60 75543w

7064




hope this will get me somewhere, its a 6 HP twin shafted engine, they are using the crankshaft to run the tiller and drive wheels, and i assume the camshaft for reverse.

No replacement engine shown and original unavailable of course. Short Block # was 756280A but discontinued. I spent a minute and I'm sure you could get a Briggs or Briggs type engine, maybe something like 12S432-0035. You need to check the output/crank and make sure that matches or get an adapter to fit. Mounting probably ok. If you're going to keep it maybe go with a Brand name but if you're going to sell it I've stuck some Harbor Freight engines on things. Good luck.

As of a few years ago, B & S did not make and probably still doesn't, an engine with an auxiliary (reverse) shaft. We just put a standard engine on those tiller but you don't have any reverse. That saying, you still had a better tiller than those made today.

If you look on ebay, there is a 756280A shortblock, as well as several 34919B blocks that you could swap your extended camshaft and internals into. I would be hesitant to put any real money into the engine that you have. Those engines were lousy when they were new, and just about any machine that had a Tecumseh from the factory wasn't very good either. If you want a good rototiller, buy a Howard Gem.

thanks guys! i know i have a off the wall engine, but everything that makes it off the wall is usuable, camshaft and end cover. so what will work? i have its older brother that runs fine and could use anything for a power unit "not twin shafted". its the cast iron version and i think i could make it work easily. i dont want to junk that tiller out! but i really like the control setup with the newer version, so a repower of the older version and use it to fix the newer version is not off the table. I have seen one like the older one i have with a 10 HP kohler and thats what it needed! this newer one is not as robust, but does have all the creature comforts that i wish the older one had.
