    1975 Troybilt Horse Tiller

    Default Old Troybilt Tiller resurrection

    I own a venerable 1975 Troybilt 2 Speed Horse model tiller that needs a new engine. We have the engine and are ready to install, but the reverse disk is beyond hope. I have not been able to find a replacement part. Don't know why - the machine is only 37 years old! I would rather not do without reverse, but may have to do so. I understand that many rental places actually remove the reverse disk to avoid trouble from inexperienced users. Does anyone know if there's a way to find such a part? Troybilt parts obviously don't go back that far. Bummer!

    Welcome aboard. Best wishes. There is a specific forum here on TBN which is "Marketplace-Wanted Ads". Perhaps you could post your needs there. I used to live and work in Sullivan County, next to you.

    Many thanks to all of you who responded to my thread! I finally managed to locate the part I need at Troybilt by talking directly to someone in the parts department, however a part that cost $8 in 1975 now costs $44! Wow, does that ever bring home the truth that we are victims of inflation. FYI to anyone looking for parts there, you can expect that some old parts are no longer available, but, fortunately for me, this one is.

    If you happen to need anything else, you can check with Replacement Parts and Accessories for your Troy-Bilt tiller - CustomPartsInc.com . I found this link here on TBN while looking for parts for mine. I just received a bunch of parts from these guys about two weeks ago and hope to get mine back together soon.
