New guy from Dearborn, Michigan

Hello everyone, I've checked this forum out before for info about my '79 Toro 524 and my old snowmaster 20 and have always found what I needed. I figured it was about time to join and share what I can for others. Here's a pic of my trusty 524.

Welcome to the forum, I live about 20 miles from Dearborn MI. It’s been a pretty disappointing winter this year with the lack of snowfalls in this part of Michigan. How long have you owned that machine, looks to be in great shape.

Hello Gar, I've owned for 12 years, I got it free from my brother-in-law when he moved to Vegas and he was the second owner. When I got it it was in sad shape. The carburator bowl gasket was leaking badly and was gummed up bad. It ran but the rpms were set so high it sounded like it was gonna grenade at any second, and the oil was so black and thick I don't think it had been changed ever. I rebuilt the carb, got the rpms down to 3600 and ran it and changed the oil 6 or seven times in a row until it stayed clean. It's due for a major cleanup and repaint this summer. Absolute tank of a machine, my first two stage machine.

Here is a pic of my little snowmaster 20 that was also a freebie. It was sitting at the curb for trash pickup so I grabbed it. All's it had was a broken starter cord and needed a carb rebuild. Runs like a champ, but still don't have the carb dialed in just right. Can't figure out why my pics are rotated and how to correct that.
