Toro S-620 - Two Questions

1) To the best of my knowledge, the S-620 was produced as 2 model numbers:
  • 38162 with Manual and Electric Start, 1st produced in 1984.
  • 38165 with Manual Start only, 1st produced in 1985.
However, in the early production years there was also a "C" model of both, as in "38162C" and "38165C".

I've scanned the parts catalogs of both and, so far, the only difference I've found is a minor hardware change (bolt vs nut) at the lower RH engine mount (item 41 on 38162 vs item 8 on 38162C). ..So my question is: Does anyone know if there's a more significant difference than that on those "C" models?
----------------

2) From time to time I've seen pictures of S-620's that had an extension of the (back breaking) vane control which put it right up close to the operator' right hand. It seems to be anchored with a simple eye bolt just below the bend on the upper handle & the lower end was a sort of clamp which attached the extension to the standard vane control handle. Was that an accessory, an owner modification, or a standard added feature in later years?


PS I'm new here. Does the forum allow "Wanted" and/or "For Sale" posts?

Thanks!

Hello Powershift93
So, I guess you're an expatriot of the Aloha State. MN must be real culture shock. I lived on Oahu for a few years back in the early nineties. And, yes, I'm a "haole" (never understood why that term wasn't considered racist over there).

Greetings from Kansas City
