I did a swap of that engine, but on a different machine than the Toro. (Troy-Bilt 2410 vs Toro PowerMax . . . but they are both red, so not much difference )

I did the same as you in terms of mounting by finding a matching set of machine holes on the chassis. The crankshaft did come up short as I recall, so I had to get a new set of pulleys and extend the shaft a by about 3/4". Check out my thread for some ideas, and also post some pictures of what you have.

Is the pulley a dual/combination pulley, or separate drive/auger pulleys? One concern is that you have enough of the pulley (s) on the shaft so nothing catastrophic will happen. Did you get a new bolt for the shaft as well?
