There are Two different Troy-bilt Pony's.
One is a rear tine tiller and the other is a lawn tractor.
If you have the tiller, The engine uses SAE 30 w oil
and the tiller gearbox should use saw 140 w gear oil, but the 140 W gear oil is very hard to find so you can use Saw 85 w 140 gear oil instead.
If you have the Pony tractor, then you have and engine that uses SAE 30 W oil
Please give me a good rating as this is the only way I get paid for my time by this sire.
If you need any more information, please just ask me here at this question.
