Both of them are still in NJ. Sadly it may be a month or a bit more before I can actually go put MY hands on both of them. Supposedly they both run really well and have minimal rust They're a little dusty and I'd rather wipe them down before I show off my wares. There's something to be said for taking pride in your tools.

crammit442 The LawnBoy was just picked up and my buddy said it's better than the eBay ad made it sound. Cranked easy first pull, runs well, and the paddles are good so I think we did pretty good for $50.00. The seller was a really good guy. He's been holding it for me for several months. Thanks everyone for the help along the way.

crammit442 I think I've got a buddy to go pick it up this week or next. I'm not sure of his snow blower knowledge, but he really knows two strokes and machinery in general so I feel pretty good about it. The guy from eBay has also been very cool about holding it for me too, so I'm pretty sure no matter what happens, it'll have been worth $50.00. Thanks for all the help.

wheelhorseboy The 2cycle R-tech engines in all those old Toro single stage snowthrowers are the Lawnboy engines, just re branded after Toro bought them, with slight tweeks.

He said it wasn't there when he got it and he wanted to make sure I was aware of it. He said it was never a problem for him. From my experience with lawnmowers with blade brakes and auto shutoffs, it doesn't seem like a big deal to me. Assuming you're a guy who's comfortable with slightly goofy mechanics is this a big deal? Here's a pic of a small toro from eBay for reference. Thanks!

Here's the Lawn Boy I bought.

That's funny. That green color kind of makes me happy too. So what's the majority opinion? Should I bother retrofitting the disengage lever or run it as is? W/O having actually used the machine I don't know, but it doesn't seem like it would be a big ordeal. Those with experience please chime in. Thanks!
