    As long as the engine is level and it runs out, you may have put a little too much in. I eliminated the throttle control and just use the engine mounted one.-fw

    The only other issue I noticed was that my drive belt seems loose... can't seem to tighten. That may have been a issue before, well, this is a new "horse" so I hadn't used it much. The engine is smooth, and strong, love it!

    I may end up moving the engine to my 81 model, I used that tiller for many many years! Kept the fluids full, the only thing MIA would be the switch to disengage the tines. That is kinda nice.

    Has anyone had experience changing the small seal on the transmission eccentric at the rear of the tiller. It looks like you could drain the 90wt and pull the seal out with a pick and tap in the new one. I have the new one and its rubber with a spring seal.

    They make throttle cables that go the other way (I bought one on accident once). I would get another cable that goes the right way.

    I've done this a couple times. Easy as pie and and it took an old screwdriver and a hammer.

    I have that engine on a 3" water pump. This spring it would only run a few hits, then quit. Long story, short, the crappy "Torch" spark plug was the culprit. You might want to install an NGK BP6ES proactively. I just bought one for $2.88 on eBay including shipping.

    My predator is on the way, I have a thread going called should I replace the hh60. I finally had enough messing around with it. Looking forward to powerful tilling soon. Should be completed over holiday weekend.
