Toro 524 Drive Shaft Movement

Is the drive shaft and friction plate supposed to have any play? I noticed that I can move it backwards and then it slides forwards back into position. Its there a spec on the endplay of the driveshaft?

There is some play needed in there for when you are double clutching through gears. a static pic really does not help me much to see if you have to much slop in there.

Yeah - hard to tell. There should be about 1/8" or so of end play and slightly some for/aft wiggle, but not floppy by any means.....




I am deathly allergic to shovels!

Posted a video on youtube but I think there is a bit more than 1/8 inch but there is no wobble.

Never thought of getting a video of it running cause I know I need to get a new friction wheel. The old original wheel is missing a lot of rubber and I can only adjust so that the machine goes forward or reverse. The belt kind of keeps things lined up but I figured that there has to be some spec on the amount of endplay. Other than a thick washer or spacer I really don't see how the driveshaft would keep from moving.

Is the new fiction wheel on there??? that is the thrust washer you are talking about. but from the looks of that vid there is nothing abnormal with the amount of play. get the new wheel on there and post a vid with it running and then we will go from there.

Nope, that's all of the original 1984 factory parts in there. I'll order that wheel I guess.

I really didn't want to piece this together cause if I have to dump a bunch of money into this it would be better off to go into a new machine.

I don't get it why are looking to fix it. if you think it is a waste of time and money better spent on some new thing.??????????????? trust me that what you have there will outlast any thing that is made today. that thing has been going since 1984. I highly doubt anything made nowdays will even see 5 years before it is ready for the scrap heap. the money and time you are putting into this 1. is far cheaper than the money you will have to pony up for something new...

Thing is, I feel if I have to spend $200+ it would be money well spent toward a newer machine with more power. I really like the idea of one of the hydro static ones with maybe 8HP or more. We don't get a lot of snow but when we do its wet and heavy with the occasional 12"+. Where can I find a new shaft spacer?
