Toro 824 XL re-power options

Hello,
I have a Toro 824 XL 38083, sn: 7904xxx... late nineties vintage.
Motor is blown, 8hp tecumseh, gave to a neighbor that likes to tinker but he never got around to it so I got the machine back minus the blown motor.

Understanding that the Tecumseh engine is no longer available, what are my options as far as re-powering this snow thrower?

TIA and Merry Christmas!!!

Your best bet on a low budget is to get a Harbor Freight 212 cc Predator. They are well made Chinese OHV engines and pretty popular for the cost. Merry Christmas to you too!

hello pro125, welcome to SBF!! there is the HF 212 or the 301. while everyone thinks the 212 motor would be good enough if I were in your position I would go with the 301 motor

to the forum pro325


to "Re-Powering"


You could go used from Craigslist, Ebay or check out a few local repair shops to see if they have one sitting around.
You'd be quite happy with the power and performance of the Predator 212cc on that 824 but depending on how much snow you get per event there in CT I might be inclined to go with William's recommendation for the 301cc. Nice to have the extra power if you need it just depends on if the Toro is in good condition and it's a "keeper".
Otherwise going with the 212cc to get it powered up and selling it and getting something shinny and new .... Just depends on the 824's condition and your time and money situation.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Please post a link to these supplies of new old stock engines then as an alternative to the new OHV Chinese made engines. Rather than get upset about someone using one. I own 3 of them and all 3 of them are excellent running engines.

For the love of ZEUS post that link so we have the opportunity of giving those brand new old stock engines sitting in warehouses a happy home for the holidays.

If you're creative you can even get a new Tec fixed speed 10-11 hp generator motor for about $130 delivered and just need to work around the tapered shaft !!
