AC RB-2430 Tiller help

Recommended Posts

I picked up a AC walk behind tiller today and would like to get pointed in the right direction for some sites that would give me some trouble shooting step by step instructions to get it running. There is not any spark at this point and after pulling the flywheel cover off of it and removing all of the junk accumulated there, I found a great deal of rust on the flywheel and the laminations on the coil looking thingy that goes to the spark plug ( technical talk ) are separating. I'm hoping there is a site that breaks down trouble shooting into sections so I can go over this engine ( B&S 5HP )one step at a time and hopefully be ready to till in a few weeks. ChuckinVA

Hi Chuck, can't point you to a step by step, but I have found the following sites, to be very useful. Good luck....Art [url]http://bbs.cartserver.com/bbs/a/5624/index.cgi[/url] [url]http://www.antiquetractors.com/garden.htm[/url] [u][http://www.antiquetractors.com/cgi-bin/aboards.cgi/u]

Thanks Art. Looks like its going to be a challenge. I replaced the coil today thinking that might get the spark back but didn't do it. The coil was in pretty bad shape so probably needed to be changed any way. I'll need to get some info before I can proceed. Thanks for the links. ChuckinVA

I did find this site which has a lot of information. I can't understand why the new coil doesn't fire. I have tried a different plug but to no avail. Nayone have any suggestions? http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/lmfaq.htm ChuckinVA

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
