1987 Toro (38150) 826

SBFers...it happened again; I told myself, my family, my friends that the snowblower herd was done expanding.

However when a thread popped-up a few weeks back from a new member saying he was looking to unload a "bucket list" blower, the Old Iron noggin' gears started grinding again. (He now has a brand-spanking new Toro Powermax)

We exchanged a few PM's and quickly realized that we're actually old colleagues!

After some back-n-forth, we agreed on a price (some new Chevy parts and a Chevy FSM) and I hit the road this morning.

You don't want to read my yapping and I want to get out to the garage and get this bad boy throwin' white stuff again!

obligatory truck-bed shots:




Unloading onto the OPE gurney:


She's in great shape!


Only crusty spots on the machine are the right side-plate:

^^^ MAYBE I'll treat the rust (phosphric acid), prime and I have some toro Red that will match this pretty close...I like some patina.

To get this old girl moving snow, it's a pretty short list:
  • clean out the fuel tank rust (MMO & swishing-around some nuts-n-bolts)
  • clean the original carb and bolt back on
  • install an impeller kit
  • order some x-tracs for these monster 8" rims
  • clean-lube-adjust the linkages
  • change the fluids (engine / gear case)
  • belt check

The left wheel clutch was seized...a little liquid wrench freed-that right up.

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Looks Like you still have it Green Grass out there in The Empire State. Wish I was There Instead Cleaning up the 4 Inches of slop here. Now The Winds be a whipping from the Great White North bringing in that Bone Chilling cold Now.

I see you got another Briggs for the stable....I've got that same blower...I think that Todd's "Senior" is one as well. I converted mine to pointless by swapping a 17 hp Intek coil from my vast pile of blown up lawntractors. I got sick of polishing points. We haven't had appreciable snow in Lakeville for four years....I'm dying to try out some of my "creations"!

Hey Seaweed; these carts (the gurney) are the nuts! Knees and back thank me; I got the idea from Bruce Pender on youtube.

Yeah it's strange that only one of the tires was replaced.

It was green; the snow started falling as soon as I got her in the garage.

Hey Cranman, i thought you had one. She's an '86 Briggs so electronic ignition with a STRONG spark...popping across a 1/4" tester gap!
