Bought a old toro 826 with a engine that wouldn't start.
I got a alsmost brand new 9hp subaru engine from work that only been used for some tests. So plan to make these 2 work togheter. Was in luch same size of shaft from motor and was able to move the pully from old motor to new motor. needed to drill 2 extra holes to mount the engine.

Then the problems started found out that the bearing for the auger had seen better days, so what to do? yes take the auger apart and change bearing. Then realised the bussings in gearbox needed to be changed and bussings at side of the augers. A friend manufactured new bushings for me. So now i will try to put everying back togheter again.

Also repainted a lot of parts. Guess it will be ready for next winter....

That's going to be a fun machine when you get it up and running.

This site should have diagrams of your machine, just need the model and serial number to pull up the info. https://www.toro.com/en/parts

Anyone know what it is used for?

got some snow in Sweden now so i got to try it out. Works great but considering rebuilding it to hydro-static drive. Got some hydraulic wheelmotors and a pump with pully in a pallet somewhere. Always good to collect things ;) will be a summer project if i go that way.
