What are your thoughts on the gap on this Toro 5/24?

You can if you want. but me personally I would not bother with it. but I would stick a new auger bearing in there.

You see a set of bad auger bearings in that picture? I'd go with the impeller kit. That's a pretty big gap.

That is the way all TORO'S are. my 74 model year has the same spacing never had a problem chucking what ever was in it's way. the old school TORO'S are rated to chuck that stuff 30ft. being that old of a machine you do not know how well it was taken care of. a new auger bearing is cheap insurance when you are already that far in. BECAUSE YOU DO NOT WANT TO DO THAT JOB TWICE.

An impeller "wipers install" mod will always benefit performance, even if it is not that noticeable..... (JMHO)

Just picked up the impeller Oilite bushing from the local OPE store. He didn't have the part that includes the flanges, just the bushing.

Impeller kit on order

Powershift was right (of course)- always replace impellor bearing when apart regardless if old is bad or not. just extra insurance. Glad you did so. I'd personally always add the rubber kit- does wonders and lot less clogs.

Impeller kit came today.

Since the entire machine is in pieces im going to install the new bearing first,

reinstall the impeller/test fit paddles/mark holes,

then drill them with the impeller out of the bucket

That might just have a sealed roller bearing set up in there. and if it does run the roller bearing over that egg bushing set up. post pics of the bearing you have in there for me to have a looksee at.
