Toro 521

I just landed a great deal on this machine. $75 for it. This machine is going to be my backup machine and the machine I transport to do a few houses away from home base. Also anyone have any idea what year this could possibly be?

And probably the main needle just needs cleaned and the holes in it cleaned out. That seems to take care of a lot of Tecumseh carb problems.

Good buy.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

one you get the serial number you can go on the toro website and look up parts to find out what year it is then let us know what year it is, I still say it's an '87
