I'm In!!! Just picked up my first vintage!

Just picked this up today. It's a Toro 524. Has the electric start. Listened to you guys so I was able to start it from cold. Has a couple puffs of smoke from the engine but settles down and runs great. I'm so hooked! I'm sure I'll have lots of questions, I know the fuel line is not correct but that's where you Toro experts can help out.

You chose a good machine. I have a 521. I'm not quite sure what you mean about the fuel line. I can't even see it to make judgement.

a few puffs on start up is normal because it runs rich with the choke applied. i have the same machine except mines an 824, same frame but a bigger engine

The fuel line comes out the bottom of the tank and bends towards the carb. He told me he had put a new line on. It puts quite a kink in the line. I'm sure I'm
missing a petcock or fuel line shut off or some other part so the line doesn't have a sharp 90 degree bend in it.

nice score. I think the reason they made the auger shaft so big with those round covers, is to limit how much snow can be ingested into the impeller, therefore limiting the possibility of it jamming up with snow. those are neat looking machines. good luck with it.

I understand. Yep. He got rid of the fuel shutoff valve that frog shows in his pics. You really ought to have one of them on there.

And maybe a filter too. I ordered 10 of each off ebay a few months back. When you buy a few at a time they get pretty cheap. If you can use a few that is.
