Greeting friends.....I just finished refurbishing a 1980 8 26 with a Briggs motor that had no compression.....a valve job and some carb work ( and a paint job) and shes sitting pretty. A question......I have no experience with the drive disconnects that I assume is to power around corners......what are the forums thoughts on this model? Like all the older Toros I've been working on.......a BEAST....I'm starting to get really savvy about the electronic safetys. This one looks simpler then the 7 24 and 8 24 I just finished up. I'll have a better idea tomorrow when I tackle that part of the project!
