I have an 824 Powershift Model 38540 S# 79xxxxxxxx
Unfortunately I experienced significant damage to the impeller and housing when it swallowed a rock pushed into the driveway by a plow two years ago. Last year I shoveled...

Not giving up and by huge luck, I recently found on Craigslist a very low hour front end from a 924 Powershift Model 38547 (I think the S# was 22xxxxxxxx)
Looking at the replacement part numbers, absolutely everything is the same (bearings, shafts, sideplates, scraperbar, augers, chute), except the actual housing assembly and warning stickers.
824 lists part number 62-0720 for the 24 inch housing. 924 lists 95-2663 and/or 95-2664. It's part #6 on the housing parts diagrams.

I've gone over these two side by side with rulers, etc., and I cannot find a difference (other than better welding on the chassis mounting steel angle plates of the 924).
Even the bolt holes are all spaced the same. Side by side, the height (and angle of the scraper bar) all look the same.

What I want to do is take the whole 924 front end and mount it on my 824. I would rather not transplant the mechanics to the old housing if I can avoid it due to front housing frame damage.
To any experienced Toro service mechanics or owners here > Do you know if there really is any difference in these two front housing frames?

Thanks!!!
