Site for Rototiller Help

I'm looking for a site where I might find some help for my Lawn Chief rototiller from the 80s. It has a 5HP Brigs on it and thats all I can find on it. I want to freshen up the full system and need to find a carb kit for it.

Get the Numbers off the Engine. That's all you'll need. then go to partstree.com to the Briggs Section and Enter the engine model number.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Turns out the number was in the only spot the shroud had rust. I'll have to clean that up when I get a chance but I got the numbers.


Thanks

Not sure but your tiller was probably mfd. by MTD.
This should tell you where to locate your mdl and ser. numbers.

another site to try
https://gardentractortalk.com
lot of helpful people, maybe someone with the same machine interest
you might want to post some pictures here and see what help you can get
as long as the numbers are stamped in, you could try rubbing them with either chalk or a pencil to make them stand out - the background will "stand out" or the letters - the pencil trick is to rub the raised surface with the pencil then carefully put a piece of white paper on the surface and rub the pencil marks on to the paper, another trick is to take a picture and then look at it on a computer and see if enlarging it allows you to "see" the markings
good luck
