Toro CCR3650 with blown motor

1) What would cause this (plenty of oil in the gas)
2) Is it worth putting a new motor in it? If so, what should I look for as a replacement?

My guess would be it was over-revving. I have looked for these and they run about 200 bucks. I have one too but need to dissasemble it to inspect the bore before I sell it as a part machine. I am hoping to be able to fix it, as mine has scores (someone straight-gassed it) and not a hole. Looks like your's maybe was revved to it's death and the rod went bye bye.

FYI ..The two halves of the engine are matched pairs keep that in mind if you happen to see the half you need on ebay avoid it unless the second half is available from the same engine. I read that in the Toro service manual . Or was it the Briggs manual.. forgot now !

The meltdown is under way ...

I'm not sure if it's worth fixing. I paid $260 on craiglist for it.

What's the trick to get the set screw with the square head loose and the pulley off? I'm assuming the head is junk too but that is good to know.

you could probably put a 212cc predator in it but would have to modify the shroud for the choke and throttle. you also overpaid, in my area running 3650s sell for about 250-300

I'm not sure which you are referring to but I happen to see this last week so here is a link I'm sure it will have the answer.

Thanks for the video. I'll check it out. It was running when I bought it and I used it for one snow storm 3x during the day.

How much room do you have under the cover there for an engine? You can remove the gas tank from a HF Predator and it helps to cut down on it's size a bit. If the space is big enough it could work.

That would be great but the form factor of the little blower may make it not practical for this one. I think because the original is 2 cycle and the thing has all that plastic shrouding, it would make it a royal pain to just check/add the oil on the HF 4 cycle,and the exhaust may not be positioned right for the plastic Maybe a 2 cycle replacement would work fine if one could be found.

if you dont mind doing a bit of cutting to the shroud and maybe making a custom exhaust, then you will have a great little blower. Heck, you'll have a monster toro, with a better engine then the original. unless you could find a good used tecumseh 2 stroke, go the predator route. and i didnt realize you paid for a running blower, i thought you bought it broken
