    Correct way to install new gasket for chain box on FM TL-105 tiller

    Hi again... so, I got the chain installed, along with the tension bar; it seems to be correctly installed. So, now I have to put the gasket on between the cover and the tiller. After many weeks, I finally got the gasket, seems to be made from some kind of thick gray oiled(?) paper. My...

    Need image of chain installation for a FHM FH-TL105 tiller

    Thanks to both you and Old_Paint... couldn't have done it without your input... I hope this helps someone else who is in the same position I was... the seller's staff were worthless except for the Parts Man (Rocky) who seems to be the only one in that company that knows what's going on...

    Need image of chain installation for a FHM FH-TL105 tiller

    I'll work with it tomorrow; your idea sounds good, just hope it works... regarding a Betstco tiller, I would NEVER, EVER purchase this again... I almost went for the Land Pride, but it was a bit more expensive, and at the time I couldn't justify it... what's that saying? "lesson learned" and...

    Need image of chain installation for a FHM FH-TL105 tiller

    When I took the cover off, the chain and spring landed on the floor... that should give you some idea of what I'm working with! yes, the hole is for the cover, I think... I would think so because there is NO bend in that leg of the spring, which I would expect if it was made correctly. I'll...

    Ahhh.... that makes more sense... I'll try it tomorrow; hope I don't break the spring, because the seller is not too helpful.

    Need image of chain installation for a FHM FH-TL105 tiller

    Hello... I purchased the above tiller from Betstco (big mistake!) and less than 8 hours of use, the chain broke. I contacted the seller, but so far, no cooperation, even tho' it's fully covered under warranty. They did send me a new chain and gasket, but didn't take measures to ensure the...

    FHM tiller tines not turning

    No big incident that I'm aware of... tilled one 20' row, turned around to do it again, and that's when I noticed tines not turning... I have put it in my shop and will start working on it later on today or tomorrow am... thanks for the response.

    FHM tiller tines not turning

    Hi Dave...thanks for responding... I didn't see any shear bolt on the PTO shaft; if it was the shaft, then the transmission shaft sitting on top of the case would not turn, but it does turn... I just spoke to Beststco's service dept, and they also think it's the chain, so I'm going to move the...
