found this little gem yesterday
guy was just putting it to the curb as I drove by
stop asked him if he was pitching it and he said yes he was.

told me he'd found it out to the curb some years ago himself, and grabbed it. lol
He said he'd used it for a couple of years, and it ran good for him.

engine is spots less (3.5hp briggs and Stratton)
(engine looks like its never been touched with a wrench)
seemed to have decent compression

the gas tank was super clean inside.
only issue seen was recoil binding (slow rewinding)
(heck at that age id be slow rewinding too.) :laughing:

it looks like everythings there except for the right side tine
(it got damaged and he pulled it off and pitched it)
and that's why he was putting it to the curb.

the throttle and drive cables are still on it and attached, the throttle works, drive cable binds (looks like could just be rusty)

chassis has some surface rust in area's.(nothing major that I could see )

going to check oil , spark, compression
and if checks out ok, will do engine basics (oil, plug, filter, etc.)
and see if she'll run.

He even helped me load it into my vehicle
(he was glad to see someone wanted it rather than have it go to the dump or scrap yard.)

note:
will post more when I get the numbers and model year of it

tiller is real close to the Roto-Bee 2035
(haven't verified engine numbers yet)
wondering what other tines might fit it off another model
its a 16" setup I think tine part no. L.H. 2056106 will fit it (left side looking at tiller from the front)

any idea's on where I might find a tine (used or new)?

May I please ask you how old your AC tiller is?

If it is a 1968 model, the engine on it should be a Briggs & Stratton model 92902 type 0376-01 (provided the original blower housing is still intact), with a date code ranging from 670801X (August 1, 1967) to 680731X (July 31, 1968).

As of now the tiller is buried in the back of my garage (storing family items)
will check it if i can find a path to it, but doesn't to promising right now.

suppose to get snow saturday 5-8 inches so it looks like i'll be digging out the snowblower.

finally dug out the tiller and began digging into it, have located a parts catalog, and possible owners manual coming for it.
if the engine recoil is original which it looks
the engine numbers are as follows:
model: 92902 type: 0806-01 code: 7002098
so the engine is feb. 9th 1970
still haven't found the model number on chassis yet
(anyone know where AC placed their numbers on these?)
