Toro 824

I have an older toro 824 model 38080.
Having problems with power controls. I have to hold it in forward or reverse gears or it pops into reverse. Handle seems to have no tension on it. I was wondering if it could be the conical spring.
Don't know much about these your suggestions would be helpful.
Thanks Chris

Welcome to the Toro-lair of SBF Chris!!!

it sounds like the spring below broke; same thing happened to me during the last storm...it's accessible / repairable through the belt-area on my '89 38080; just pop-off the belt cover.

Hello and welcome to the forum Cdjacks1. Here is a copy of the Toro service manual compliments of our moderator, Shryp, to help with the spring placement. Section 3-3 figure 75 shows the location as well as classiccats photo. The spring is Toro part number 11-4640 which I also had to replace last winter. I THINK it was a $10 part??

Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro (51984) Hand Held Blower (For the light stuff)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Welcome to the forum Chris

Glad it was something easy. Maybe post a photo of the old girl when you report back on how that spring is working for you ??
