Hi all,
First time posting on this forum. I had and 824 with a bad motor. I replaced the motor and after a few test runs with the auger engaged, I found that the impeller bearing is a little sloppy. I have 0 experience with TORO brand. I'm more familiar with he Ariens and John Deere. After looking over the machine, it appears that it is not a small project. I'm thinking i need to remove the entire auger/impeller parts to get the machine split. I could just wing it and go as I see fit. However if there is a repair manual or procedure to follow, I would like to go that route. Mod # is 38080 and see # is 6003240.
Any help would be appreciated.
Randy

Ok, got it all apart and found a bad bearing. Wasn't as bad as I was thinking.
Getting ready to order parts.

Glad to hear you weren't having a bad time with seized/stuck shafts! Be sure to lube everything liberally with grease when she goes back together and you will save yourself future grief......

Jerry and fibersport,
Those were the scenarios that i was expecting, however, this darn thing popped right off with only a couple sprays of WD40 and some love taps with a hammer. Simply amazing!!!!! One thing I have to say that the machine is exceptionally clean and free of rust for its age. I'm thinking its a 1986 model. Ordered the parts last night and will hopefully slide it back together real soon. Thanks again for all the tips. I received a helpful message from another fella about the manuals. I can't seem to find it so I have to do some digging. I'm new to this website so it may take a bit to find my way around. These sites are great.

I just checked out the "sticky" on TORO repair manuals. That will be helpful in the future. It doesn't show my specific model, however I'm thinking t looks pretty similar. Thanks again
