Ariens guy here who found an old Toro

I have two early 90's Ariens that I bought for $50 nine years ago. Have pretty much rebuilt everypart of one. Second needs a front bucket and ground drive diff. After decades of New Hampshire winters. Just found a Free 1980 Toro 826. Need help to get it running for a Veteran.

Briggs motor? Electric safety switches on those are no longer available, and although they are beasts and throw well, are dangerous with out the safty switchs.

I second CranMan's comments. I had the same machine and while rugged and powerful, I hated the dead man and didn't disable it because of the potential to lose digits.

2015 Ariens Deluxe 28
Previous Machines:
1995 Yard-White-Bilt 8/26 Frankenblower
1980 Toro 826
1981 Toro 3521
