    try turning the pulley on the back of the shaft the worm gear would be hard too turn by the tines. we put 2 sets of phos bronze gears in our old frnt tine, then found a rear tine rocket for the same price they wanted for the replacement gears. front tine lasted for 30 years, was a good tiller just getting old! old one was 3 horse brigs new one 7 horse tecrapsy.

    Not if it a worm-gear drive. They are one direction only - you need to spin the part the motor spins, to see if the times turn. The tines will _not_ spin the worm to make the pulley/shaft/coupler/whatever the motor will engage.
