toro 724

picked up a Toro 724 today for free and possibly need some advise. not sure exactly what to do with it. i just finished swapping motors and getting my Ariens snow blower running and working for the year. too cold out to really wrench on it. was thinking about at least trying to get it running. i forget whether my brother in law said it ran or not. i figure if i keep it i may end up picking up a newer more reliable Honda clone motor. i think i was also told i the impeller shaft bearing is bad. any recommendation on the best place to look to get one or possibly a part number? also anyone know what shade of red they are from the factory. been thinking that if i keep it i will want to make it look pretty and stock. don't really care much for the way it is currently painted.
the only shot i currently have of the thing. it is heavy

Toro 421 521 524 824 Impeller Shaft Bearing Bushing 63 3450 26 6100 12 8789 | eBay

13.25 for the bushing on ebay, you will love the honda clone

this honda clone retails for about 130 new



i recommend this one because every single genuine honda part fits, unlike the predator where the bore, stroke, and flywheel are different

thanks. i might try pricing out the bushing at the local stores first. seems most of those have like a $20 shipping charge to Canada.

i am not sure what motor i might put on it. i may end up just putting whatever engine i catch on sale at the time on it. i currently got a princess auto powerfist engine on my Ariens that i picked up on sale for $135 after taxes. couple months back the local store had a kohler engine on sale for $115 after taxes. considered picking one up but decided not to because i didn't really need it. wasn't expecting to pick up a 3rd snow blower.
here is a pic of my Ariens snow blower. it was pretty clean. i did a few touch ups but nothing major

i forgot about the paint question so here goes. toro red came on two shades of red and you can still get them through ebay or a toro dealer but i've only seen them in a rattle can

thanks. i am pretty sure my BIL said the engine had been replaced since it says 8hp and should be 7hp. i think i was also told the electric start don't work because it is the wrong starter for the engine.

i might see about trying to find the model number and serial so that i know how to tear the thing apart. i am not even sure if i will paint it an exact toro red. i might end up settling for close enough as long as it is a nice red paint.

the blue isn't bad other than the fact rust is coming through all over the place. i personally preffer having the snow blower a brighter color. i don't know if i will do the candy apple red. i was possibly thinking of using engine enamel paint which kind of limits my selection but the ford red look pretty good. i like the engine enamel. the stuff always seem to go on pretty good and is oil and gas resistant.
