Question
I HAVE A JC PENNY 8 H.P CHAIN DRIVEN ROTARY TILLER MODLE 3032B.  I FOUND A PARTS CATALOG NO. 812-0843 BUT ONLY HAS ENGINE PARTS! TRYING TO FIND A DEALER THAT HAS OTHER PARTS TO THE TILLER NOT RELATED TO THE ENGINE. WOULD BE NICE IF I COULD GET PARTS TO FIX IT GREAT TILLER TO HAVE! THANKS

Answer
I found a reference for the JC Penny stuff a while back. I don't have that model however. MTD built some of the tillers. Some were made by Atlas, which were bought by General Power, which were bought by MTD. If you need parts for an Atlas, they still use General Power part #s, but may come from MTD if they are available.

Can you attach some pictures so I can see if I can at least identify who made the tiller?

What parts are you looking for?

Experience

Born and raised in the midwest. Started tinkering with engines when I was about 14 on my Suzuki RM-80. I began lawn mower repair at a small hardware store. I knew absolutely nothing. I read lots of repair manuals and met an older fellow who taught me many lessons. I continued working on small engines through high school and paid my way through college working on mowers at the same hardware store. Decided to get away from the midwest and mower repair so I joined the Air Force. I repaired air traffic control electronic equipment and ended up in Hawaii where I got a part time job at Small Engine Clinic. I gained a lot of experience from the Small Engine Clinic and had a blast repairing small engines. I then took the Briggs and Stratton Master Service Technician test and earned my MST. I then traveled to Wisconsin where I attended the factory update training seminar and received formal training. Continued working on mowers part time as I completed 20 years of military. Retired from the military on a Friday and continued in the lawn and garden industry the next Monday.
