I have a Mang brand rear tine tiller made by the by Oregon Manufacturing Co of Beaverton,Oregon (1948-2001)
This tiller has been in my family since 1972 when my father purchased it from a local rental company here in Sacramento without and engine and was completely rebuilt by my father and I when I was 7 yrs old back then.
It was used on a regular basis through the 70s and 80s on our 2 acre property in our garden.
But other interests and life itself changed and so this tiller sat 99% of the last 30 yrs last running probably 15 years ago.
Well fast forward to to today and I am now 47 with my 19 yr old son and we have decided with the current economic situation to do our own garden and therefore a rebuild of this unit is now scheduled to put it back into working order.
The gas tank was removed some years ago and sand blasted to clean it but never finished so will need another sand blast inside and out, and then will be ceramic coated inside to prevent rust in the future.
The carb might need rebuilt but will see later when engine is tried.
Tires are 40+ years old and all cracked beyond use so purchased new Bridgestone 5x12 tires which have 3 times the tire tread we were working with , good thing Smile
One wheel has some bends in the bead areas that will need attention before powdercoating the wheels and mounting the new tires.
Looking for a source right now to straighten them so they will be perfect under new layer of powder coating to look new.
And was able to find a NOS set of new tiller tines to replace the VERY worn out set we had been using that are half the width of the new with ZERO cutting edge left so conclusion being we were "beating " the dirt rather than cutting it as designed.
My father acquired a electric start option for this that we bolted up but never wired it in to use, but I will be adding a battery box and getting the push button working
Some part will be powder coated like wheel because my son works for a powder coating co so we get a great deal
Other parts and the main gearbox and engine will be scuffed and resprayed to look new.
A few questions is what was the original color of these units? Mine is red but do not think it is original color.
And does anyone have photos of the original stickers and their location on the unit? I want to get stickers remade to replace those gone.
I have the original Mang manual that came with it so hopefully it will help with the process
Thanks in advance. hope to connect with other Mang owners

Brian

Tiller blades can now be bought for just about any tiller from http://www.tiller-blades.com/L-Blades/View-all-products.html
888-589-6160

Ask for Charlie who is the president and is great at customer service and knowledge of his products and what they fit

He has manuals to most any make and can tell you what exactly you need. Great source for those of us doing older units where the manufacturer is now out of business

He says Mang SR tines are:

His part# 4500506 right and 507 left (Mang #62-11 OR 12)

10mm bolt hole

1 1/2" bolt spacing
1/4 inch thick

That looks to have a starter/generator on the tiller. I have an old 31" Toro rotary mower and
it had that option of using a starter/generator.
It came with a rope start and if it gets hard to start I use my garden tractor to start it using a Vee belt. It has a 9hp B&S model 23 engine. Hal
