(1989 Toro 824 Powershift) It looks like all my off- season efforts are going to pay off. New auger and impeller bearings, straightened and reinforced bent auger, new belts, and installed a used diff axle. When it DID throw, it threw very well indeed. The problem is I also rebuilt the carb- I got the engine running well, but of course it's impossible to simulate load until the snow flies. This weekend we got a heavy icy mess in the Boston area. The second the machine would load up, it died. Went through the adjustment procedure several times to no avail. Backed out the power adjustment screw, still died. Just to get through, as a last ditch I installed the old mixture screw, which has a different profile than the replacement. I got it to run, but experienced that classic Tecumseh surging. I'll pull the carb again, and check the slow-speed pickup for blockage. Nonetheless, I still like the idea of starting fresh, so I'm thinking of a new carb. Anyone have any thoughts on these $40 ones on eBay? Or should I not be so cheap and shell out the extra 40 for an OEM?
