New to me PowerShift project

Will an 824 Powershift with a hole in the side of the block fit well into the back of a Pacifica van? Yup, no problem. And so a project begins....

Yes that was the one. Guy actually sold it to me for $40. That's what he had it priced at on Offerup, a craigslist style app. She's a bit beat up but I just wanted one of the old rascals.

Well that's one way to splice in a fuel shut off It will have a better life with you and a new engine. Thank you for buying it I kept looking at it and trying not to call the guy.
I finally broke down and scrapped three snow blowers and a mower. I need to finish some of my projects and get them listed. Just too many and not enough room.

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

She sat in the back of my van for about 16 hours because I had to wait for a neighbor to help me lift her out. The whole time I kept thinking fuel was going to leak out into the van and the wife was gonna be PO'd. I lucked out on that.

I hope to try and get that 5.5 hp Chonda on it that I have laying around. If not, will hopefully do a Pred.

You won't regret this project.....I have only Tec's on the Powershifts, but I love the Chondras on my Ariens! Actually I just remembered I got a big Briggs in the 32 in Powershift....it's my favorite in the Toro's

So there are some issues in the pulley department on a tecumseh Powershift. The key is built into the pulley and the distance between the shivs is different than a standard 524. Makes using a sleeve difficult. May have to search for a healthy 8 hp tecumseh.

Appears to have a bit of excessive wobble\looseness in the trans input pulley. Me thinks I'm pulling a Powershift tranny apart. Hopefully just a front hub or bearing. Prices not too bad at Toro website. Almost $1200 for a complete trans ain't gonna happen.
