Hi Jesse:
.030 (.762MM)
Not all spark plugs have the same heat range or reach. Using an incorrect spark plug can cause severe engine damage or poor performance. Tecumseh uses all three of the reaches shown.
Ta Da!

-Possibly fuel line is clogged between tank to carburetor. Or the line
is closed. (Most tiller has a Open/Closed valve that let you open and close the gas line)

Good luck

You can get this manual directly from the troybilt.com website. A lot of manufacturers have their manuals available and just out of curiosity I checked there and in they do have tillers like the one pictured here. Enter pony tiller in the search box and you'll get a page of their different models. Click the one you have and it opens into another window showing the tiller, and beneath it is a bar with "overview" Specs" "Accessories" and "Parts & Manual" You can download the manual and - "yippee!!" - it's even free.

Check the fuel. Pour some fuel into a clear jar and let it set. See if it seperates due to water in the fuel. Very common problem.

Check for another sheared shear pin.

You probably have some buildup in the carburetor, because tillers are gernerally used seasonally it leaves plenty of opportunities for buildup to occur . Also, you should inspect throttle cables and linkage to insure that everything intact.
