Toro 622 model 38062

How's it going ? I bought a toro 622 model 38062 for $20 and didn't start which guy told me ( he said could use service ). This looks like model from 98 approx. Tried to start a few times , changed gas & spark plug with no go.

Took to a repair place and they said I need a new Carb and a service. It was there for 2 weeks yet took only 10 minutes to Check. ( called 10 mins before call back as he had machine on table today ). Price they said was $250 total.

I really don't want to this much into machine that's 16 yrs old or so .... Would a repair kit for like 15$ or so be sufficient to fix this issue or anything else it could be ? I've seen carbs for approx 135$ which I'm still iffy on , is it basic swap out n swap in ?

Thanks in advance.

I guess the bigger question is, how mechanical are you and do you have the ability to post pictures? Most of us here, can walk anybody through most things.

Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.

"IF" the carb is the only problem, they can be purchased for as little as $35 on eBay.



If the carb is in decent condition, a rebuild kit ($9 P/N 31840) and a good cleaning may be enough to get it running. I assume the shop found numerous things to repair for $250.

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

Thanks for reply , I'm pretty mechanical useful , just never did a carb before. The shop said a carb and regular service was 250$ so not sure what they found.

Cheapest compatible carb I saw was 75$ on eBay. ( my serial is 7915197, 1997 unit )

May try to and get rebuilt kit and try that , worst case ill look for new in upcoming months but rather not since I bought machine for $20

Thanks again

Will the engine start if you pour a little gas into the spark plug hole ? If yes, then you at least have a working ignition system. Below are some links that will help getting the machine running again. If you have any problems along the way, there are some great people here that are willing to help.

To be honest I havent tried the gas in spark plug hole as machine still at shop. Maybe the tried at shop to pin point carb is bad ?? I am picking up this week and will try that and go from there. Hopefully I can fix otherwise its not like it broke the bank. I will keep all posted.

Thanks

Another recommendation, try using a ultrasonic jewelry cleaner, with a drop of dawn and tap water. Works pretty amazingly, without the fumes.

You'll have to break the fuel bowl down, and the butterfly plates, but those are pretty simple things. Make sure to take pictures as you go, so that you have references.

When we were kids mounting horizontal shaft engines on bicycles with a large fan belt like factory built Whizzers, we used to remove any plastic or rubber parts and throw the carb into a pot of boiling water for a few minutes. Anyone else ever do this??

I've done it with machine gun parts. Does that count?
