Brand new to the forum - and I really need some assistance. I received (from a neighbor) a 1987 Toro 724 (model 38050, Serial #7000XXX ). It seems to be in decent shape but hadn't been run in 3-4 years. He had the carb off for cleaning (which I completed) and I'm going to reassemble and he neglected to mark the hole the linkage was in (I typically scratch a mark or take a photo) - specifically the one from the control plate to the butterfly (the governor linkage is intact). Since the carburetor was dipped - I can't find any obvious wear marks that would indicate where the linkage was. I suppose I could trial and error this but I thought I would ask to see if anyone here could help as I don't want to over cook the engine if I'm wrong.


If it helps - the engine model is Tecumseh H70-130259K and the carburetor p/n is 632371A. Realistically there are only a couple of holes (the top 2) on the control plate that it could be and 3 on the carb itself so not a whole lot of combinations to work through. But that said - if someone had a diagram or a pic of their setup I would really appreciate it. I know this thing was a beast so I would really like to get it running again.


Thanks for the help - I do appreciate it!!!

Classic Cat - Thanks for the response - mine must be a different model and/or year. I don't know how to post a pic but my control plate is mounted to the flywheel housing and is vertical - not horizontal like yours.


Sorry I can't post a pic..
