what did you do today

i went to the dealer this morning to pick up an original toro key and a knob for the handle for the ccr3650r i just got. from there i went and got a hair cut, haveing the allergic reaction to onions just before christmas ment i couldn't get a hair cut either. once back home i made some lunch before going out to the garage. the first order of buisness was to make some more room which i did. then i remembered a thread on here that showed where to look for the serial number on an enginge so i got a good look at my toro 826 and there it was 190402 0989 01 780 62172, can anyone help me with this. i tryed looking up the number to see what year it is but came up blank so with the toro and craftsman sitting side by side i took this pic before putting everything back in the garage

Blasted temperatures have been in the 40s the last couple of days, with rain, so there isn't a sign of snow anywhere to be seen. Grass is so green it looks like it needs to be mowed, but it's supposed to snow tonight.

So, having no good reason to be outside, we started working on re-calking the shower. What fun.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

thanks jt thats the info i was looking for, thank you very much
bwdbrn the temp here was in the upper 50's and i really wanted to go for a ride on the goldwing but geting the numbers off the toro was more important. also while looking it over i noticed the bolt holes are already threaded for the starter so all i have to do is get the right size and legnth bolt to install the electric starter. i looked at the craftsman snowblower too and it doesn't have a fuel shutoff valve

pulled the 14hp vertical shaft Briggs i/c gold engine out of my 1993 Sears / Craftsman lawn tractor.

This tractor has seen a lot of use in its lifetime. I bought it new in 93 and have used it to cut our 2 acres of grass every summer and even pressed it into duty as a snow plow for at least 5 winters. It has also been used with numerous attachments as well as with a cart to transport all kinds of heavy stuff.

While with the exception of a blown head gasket a few years the engine always ran great. Late this summer i noticed some noise coming from the engine that sounded like a slight rod knock.

I figured i would just tear it down this winter since it now longer is used for plowing snow and just rebuild the engine. Maybe i can get another 20 years out of the old girl.

Saturday Morning

Spent Saturday morning making a short road trip to swap out a flywheel from a HM80 that had a buggered up starter ring for one that was good. Did a little horse trading. Said he's been sitting on a couple of Gilsons he can't sell for love nor money this year.

I DID.....a little bit

PHILLIPS 66 DOCK #6
WOOD RIVER, IL

ACTUALLY, I AM AN UNWORTHY PARTICIPANT IN THE FORUM AT THIS TIME AS I HAVE BLOWN ZERO SNOW THIS SEASON (ok, i'm at work and the boat doesn't have a snowblower). DEPRESSING KNOWING THERE ARE 2 MACHINES READY TO GO AND I CAN'T RUN THEM.

BUT!!

I HAVE HAD ENOUGH STAND-BY TIME TO CRUISE E-BAY AND FOUND AN 11 HP B&S INTEK SNOW ENGINE FOR A RIDICULOUS PRICE THAT WILL GO ON THE PROJECT SNOWBLOWER (a 2 year project, soon!!). THIS WILL REPLACE THE 10 HP TEC ON THE PROJECT MACHINE (jeez!! i only wanted the 10 hp tec in the first place but it had a snowblower attached to it).

SO....

I WILL HAVE A 10 HP TEC AVAILABLE IN THE SPRING. ALSO, HAVE A 5 HP TEC WITH 2 SHAFTS ON A 536XXX SERIES CRAFTSMAN THAT RUNS WELL AND THAT I MAY PART OUT RATHER THAN RESTORE. THIS IS NOT A SALES PITCH OR LISTING (ok...it really is turning into a ramble).

WHAT I AM DOING TODAY IS STANDING BY WHILE ASPHALT IS BEING LOADED. THERE IS A LOT OF MACHINERY RUNNING IN THE BACKGROUND SO I HOPE YOU CAN HEAR ME.

detdrbuzzard, It's funny you mentioned getting a knob for your Toro. I wanted to change mine up a little bit, so I got a couple knobs myself. Just received my Mad Hatter and Willie Wonka this weekend. I drilled a hole in each and added a threaded insert w/epoxy. Fits like a glove.
